Great skiing conditions - they had about 40" less than usual this year but got about of foot of snow the day before we arrived so conditions were just fine. Views are spectacular, many neat hangouts for snacks, drinks as well as shopping.

Perfect snow, great lifts, great views. Awesome! The staff was super nice, the snow was great. The lines were short. Everything was perfect. We had a perfect day skiing there. My kids would have liked to have snowboarded there, but that's life.

The powder here is the best in North America. This resort is a must visit and much better snow than over the hill at Park City. For a skier this is heaven especially through the trees

We love Alta. there was a lot of snow but no powder. We still had fun. We like to eat at Alf's and you should always get a pizza from Gold Miner's Daughter at least once while you are there.

Alta is one of the best ski areas right up there with Jackson Hole. Amazing expert terrain. Great snow conditions. Mineral Basin on the backside provides an entirely separate area to enjoy bowls, chutes and cliffs. Not an area for beginner skiers. Snowboarding not allowed....More

Alta seems to be a little more advanced, I would hesitate to take my family there that doesn't do steep and fast. Same with Snowbitd.
