<<< Back to Alta ski area main page

 Alta ski area Management Says:
Alta has an average share of blue and black slopes and an average share of easy trails. This ski resort has a drop from top to bottom of 2,020 feet which is more than enough for a pleasant top to bottom run. Having 2,200 acres of skiable territory being deficient in terrain wonít happen. The great snow here turns very deep, 42 feet yearly, and that is one of the reasons this is such a fine ski mountain. This ski hill has 7
    ski lifts and 4 surface tows, and they are competently maintained and operated by friendly people.

Alta has a reasonable set of trails and an acceptable amount of good ski lifts. This is a nice ski area with lots of different
trails; it's totally impossible to get bored here. Alta is a good size ski resort boasting an average elevation difference compared to other US Rockies ski resorts. Alta is skiing only, snowboards are not allowed. The snow-white hills of Utah are something you canít pass up if you're keen on snowboarding or skiing. On this hill you'll discover 54 different ski trails; it's a magnificent set.

This ski resort has stronger snowfall than the local average each
 
snow season. The marvelous mountain surroundings of Utah and great ski trails have ski people coming from far and near. Skiing and snowboarding here in Utah is a nice thing to do the whole ski season. Getting a great workout and spending some quality time in the outdoors is better than anything.

There are 5 independantly owned lodges at Alta, catering to a wide variety of clientelle. There arenít any hotels in the vicinity, but if you're ok to drive a small length then no problem, but you'd better book ahead of going since these hotels fill up swiftly. The Wasatch Range in winter is an extraordinarily wonderful place if you enjoy snowboarding or skiing. The hills of the Wasatch Range give this ski area an extraordinarily wonderful surroundings. The trailmap of Alta on this web page unsurprisingly says a thousand words.
