Perfect ski resort for all levels of skiing. We booked motel at SLC - South Jordan area. Approx. 30 minutes driving to Alta every day. I bought ski pass at internet, but you still have be in line and activate it every day. Price was same online and at lift shop. I recomend to be there early morning - less people, good surface and leave 1 hour before closing to prevent traffic. Of course the biggest plus of Alta is NO SNOWBOARDING. Snow was great. Road through mountain was clear and easy drive. We tried neighbor Snobird resort and quickly came back to Alta to enjoy skiing with less people and none of careless snowboarders. Restroom & snack stop in the middle of mountain was very helpfull. Short walking distance from parking lot. I'm not rating nighlife, beacause we stayed at SLC.
