Reviews for Alta Ski Area
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Not family-friendly. outdated. Canyon road is dangerous and hard to travel and is closed very often in the winter. Very expensive. Requires lots of long traversing to get to diffrent areas, time that could be spent skiing. The parking is competitive and restrictions on occupants in vehicles during peak times. Requires 4wd or chains when it is snowing a good amount. there a far better options in slc area for just about any visitor. ... Full Review
My favorite place to ski in the world, but not on weekends. Great snow conditions andwide variety of terrain. We have a time share, so don't need to deal with the traffic issue. Only real downside for us is we have had multiple issues with lift ticket staff and they are not very helpful or polite. our experiences with the lift staff has been great. ... Full Review

all around an excellent ski resort, however there are no terrain parks unless you count natural features like rock drops.... Full Review
It's official: the Ikon Pass has ruined both Cottonwood Canyons, but most especially Alta. The volume of traffic going up the mountain is ridiculous, the lift lines enormous. ... Full Review
We go every year for 1 week. This will be our 8th year. Just an overall great experience. Doesn't matter if it's a pow day or skiing cords...it's a great place!!!... Full Review
Charging $65 for. 5 year old is simply ridiculous. No other resort I know does this. If you have a family and kids go to Snowbird (under 6 are free).
Alta seem to moving to the rip off ski resort tactics - very sad ... Full Review
