Remember Alta when planning a ski vacation that will provide a unique setting for unforgettable experiences with family, friends and the mountain itself.
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. The focus is on skiing, earning Alta accolades as an authentic and genuine experience. 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 consistently ranks Alta for Snow Quality and Overall Satisfaction. Alta, along with Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, proudly celebrate creating America's first lift-served interconnect in 2001. Come and enjoy the excitement of the AltaSnowbird experience. With the AltaSnowbird "one ticket" skiers have access to 4700 acres.
