oohh nice day!!! honestly Alta never disappoints!!! OK yes it's true that its warm, and icy on some parts, but the temp was high enough to be beautiful and soften the snow... you have to go find the better parts depending the time of the day...

100% agreed. Awesome skiing for the most part. If you can cross into snowbird for a few runs. If you complain about the snow go search for it!

JohnRob if Alta is not good enough for you, maybe take up another sport. Follow the sun and enjoy the sunshine! Peace!

This is the 5th year I have been here each February and sadly this is the worst! While the base is good, temps are up in the low 40s. the snow is melting and then refreezing overnight. So you guessed it, it is hard packed and icy until later in the morning. Off trail is covered with moguls so if your coming up, sharpen your edges your going to need it.

@Victoria don't worry about a thing. I'm sorry if my report from this weekend made you lose even an ounce of enthusiasm about your trip. The truth is I meant it being warmer as a good thing. We've been getting pounded by storms and cold all season and you'll get to enjoy the benefit of that in more mild conditions. Trust me, you don't want it to storm THIS weekend. We'd be stuck in traffic coming down till summer if it did
