Affordable Skiing: Alta

by Ski Utah Yeti December 14 2009 0 Comments


Picture the thrifty consumer who buys only one new sweater every few years but spends good money on a quality one. That’s the type of skier Alta attracts. For 70 years, the Utah resort has been known for its no-frills approach, letting the challenging terrain and abundant snow speak for itself. Though you won’t find dirt-cheap hotels or lift tickets, Alta offers few temptations for spendthrifts. Hard-core skiers come here to ski (snowboarding is still verboten), not to ride fancy gondolas or blow their budgets at trendy boutiques or aromatherapy spas.

Get the insider scoop on affordable skiing at Alta from the New York Times.
