Alta kids...last ski day takes us to Alta!

by Mountain Mama April 27 2011 0 Comments

I am an Alta skier.  I moved to Utah 14 years ago and fell in love with Alta way back when.  The scenery, the ambiance, the skiers mountain.  This year we've been to a lot of resorts.  Done fabulous lessons from Park City to Brighton.  Only one ski day at Alta, so we needed to hustle up for one more day.  I wanted to get both kids to mid-mountain for lunch at Alfs and get a few runs in together.  It was the first time I had both Emily and Brennan up together for runs at Alta.  You see, when I've been doing these runs solo for 14 years, it was pretty special to get the kids up with me.  Emily and I had a Mom/Daughter day last year at Alta.  This day was Mom/Daughter/Son day.  So fun!

With 674" of snow this season and 2 mores storms on the way, Alta reopens this Friday/Saturday and Sunday for one last run!
