Snow quality, steeps and tree
If you hate champagne powder, don't ski here
Well, Alta is simply amazing. Mid-April, 65º in Salt Lake City, 14 inches of Utah pow up in the Little Cottonwood Canyon. Unreal. Great steeps and some nice cruisers. Some people see their "no snowboarders" policy as a good thing. I don't particularly care. What I do care about is the friendly service and amazing mountain that Alta offers. It's a great resort.
