Full review

I just got back to NYC this morning on the redeye back from Salt Lake City after three great days of skiing Alta. Obviously I was hoping to ski some powder, but even though we didn't get one of those serious dumps I loved every minute. I love skiing the trees, and with just a little effort I was able to find little plenty of cool little shots to enjoy. I'm also a mogul fanatic, and was able to get plenty of bumps while skiing of the never crowded Wildcat lift. On a clear bluebird day, I'm not sure there's a ski area that is more picturesque, and on my last day I took a few more runs then my legs wanted just so I could soak in the atmosphere from the lift. But probably the best part about Alta is the clientele it attracts - no one comes here to be pampered in five-star luxury, they come here to ski. I stayed at the Alta Peruvian, and made friends from the moment I arrived. If you're a die-hard skier, visiting this classic mountain is absolutely mandatory!
