Alta Ski Resort
Alta is situated at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon amidst stunningly beautiful granite peaks. Staying with tradition, Alta is for skiers only, no snowboarders.
Alta used to be a locals’ favorite because of the awesome powder, great terrain and cheap lift tickets. With a stunning 200 foot vertical drop, Alta has more than 115 runs with deep powder and a variety of terrain to challenge advanced skiers as well as beginners. Alta is one of the oldest ski resorts in the US (it opened in 1939) and it retains some of its old-fashioned traditions, the most obvious being the prohibition of snowboarders.
Beginning in the winter of 2002, Alta and its neighbor, Snowbird, began offering a joint day pass and a joint season ticket, allowing skiers to fully access all of the terrain of both resorts. The offer coincided with the opening of a new lift in Mineral Basin, a large bowl owned by Snowbird on the back of Snowbird’s Hidden Peak and Alta’s Sugarloaf mountains, that allowed access to Alta from the Basin. Other access points between the two resorts exist as well. Snowbird allows snowboarders.
