Alta, Utah

Alta Ski Area

Alta is the American mecca, some would say the world mecca, for powder skiing, and an icon of the “steep and deep” terrain that is blanketed annually with 600+ inches of the “Greatest Snow on Earth®”.  It’s also one of a handful of US resorts that still prohibit snowboarders. 

The Forest Service issued the initial permit to construct a lift at Alta to the Salt Lake Winter Sports Association. Alta officially opened as a ski area in the winter of 1938-39. Throughout the years, Alta’s philosophy has been to offer a quality skiing experience for a fair price. The focus is on skiing, earning Alta accolades as a “purist’s mountain.”

The lodges are classic, the food exceptional, the atmosphere reminiscent of the best skiing has to offer.
Alta, along with Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, proudly celebrate 10 years of offering America’s first lift-served interconnect. With the

Alta/Snowbird “one ticket,” skiers have access to 4700 acres. Alta/Snowbird was voted the #1 resort in the U.S. by Skiing magazine for five years running.

The Alta Environmental Center is the outgrowth of Alta’s last twenty years of sustainability practices. Alta is committed to discovering innovative new ways to be sustainable and improve our environment.  Alta believes an efficient, profitable company is a necessary foundation to support many worthy environmental efforts.  The Alta Environmental Center will guide these efforts towards sustainability and will look after the natural environment.
