CLASSIC. Sorry, Boarders, you’re still not welcome.
Alta has been about pure, unspoiled skiing since 1938. If you're looking for the groomers, you're in the wrong canyon. Alta's wide variety of terrain, breathtaking alpine scenery and superb snow conditions make an unforgettable outdoor experience for family and friends willing and able to explore off-piste. Alta equals deep powder snow, rugged terrain, chutes cliffs and steep bumps. They installed the Collins highspeed quad chairlift so you'll have faster access to Rustler, Ballroom and mostly north/northwest-facing terrain. when the line is too long, head to Supreme and Sugarloaf lifts for a bit then return. Don’t be intimidated by the terrain. Though intermediate skiing is limited, Albion Basin rocks for beginners- take advantage of the Ski Free After Three deal for that section of the mountain.
