The Forest Service issued the initial permit to construct a lift at Alta to the Salt Lake Winter Sports Association. Alta officially opened as a ski area in the winter of 1938-39. Throughout the years, Alta’s philosophy has been to offer a quality skiing experience for a fair price. The focus is on skiing, earning Alta accolades as a “purist’s mountain.” It is one of the three remaining areas in the United States to be a skier’s-only mountain. Snowboarding is not allowed. Ski Magazine's Reader Resort Survey ranked Alta #1 for Overall Satisfaction. Alta, along with Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, proudly celebrate 10 years of offering America’s first lift-served interconnect. Come and enjoy the excitement of the AltaSnowbird experience. With the AltaSnowbird “one ticket,” skiers have access to 4700 acres. AltaSnowbird was voted the #1 resort in the U.S. by Skiing magazine for five years running.
