Alta and pure, unspoiled skiing are indeed synonymous. Alta's wide variety of terrain, breathtaking alpine scenery and superb snow conditions combine to create a unique setting for unforgettable outdoor experiences with family, friends and the mountain itself. Alta becomes a place where visitors have all the time in the world to feel both a sense serenity in a pristine alpine environment as well as a sense of excitement and fun in being outdoors in the clean mountain air. Alta continues to offer a ski-only experience.
Whatever your ability, Alta is for you.
