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

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

I love Alta! Skied wed for my birthday and the pow was unbelievably soft floaty and super fast! I love that I can ski alta off runs safely and the services for children and seniors is unbeatable. They always make me feel like I'm welcome. I have two rowdy toddlers and they are always welcomed warmly at the daycare, and it doesnt cost us a fortune to have a full day skiing. Tracking the next storm for sure ... Full Review
