Alta Ski resort is part of the Rockies. Alta has it all and top it all: breathtaking scenery, most exhilarating slopes with deep powdery snow, fast lifts and courtesy skiers on the trails. With the wide variety of terrains to suit every level skier, you can spend a whole day skiing here and still want to come back the next day to explore more. This is one of a few ski resorts which do not allow snowboarding to keep the powdery snow on the surface longer. Conveniently located along the ski slopes, there are several places to pop-off your skis, set aside your poles to have a snack or lunch break. Best of all, the average percentage of days within the months December through March when this Resort sees more than six inches of snow, Alta is at 20.3%. What does this statistical number mean to skiers? Six inches of snow is an ideal condition to ski and Alta has more days in the winter time to meet that perfect condition.
So what are you waiting for? Head to Alta Ski resort and experience for yourself!
