About The Resort
With a skiable area of 2,614 acres, the Alta Ski Resort is in the western United States, located in the town of Alta in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, in Salt Lake County. The resort is one of the oldest ski resorts in the country, having opened its first lift in early 1939. Alta is also known for receiving more snow than most Utah resorts, with an average annual snowfall of 545 inches.
Alta Ski Area features long, straight, fall-line pitches. Among the most well-known and most favored are Alf's High Rustler, Eddie's High Nowhere, Stone Crusher, and the Baldy Chutes. Though widely respected as one of the most challenging in-bounds ski areas in the world, Alta has always viewed itself as a local's and family-oriented ski area.
