Alta has been referred to as a “skier’s mountain” for many reasons. It is known for its scenery, diverse terrain and for the uncanny quality of snow that it receives season after season. Also, Alta does not allow other types of winter recreation other than skiing. It is a watershed, so no mechanized vehicles are allowed. The ski area has decided to be “just for skiers”, so other snow-sliding equipment is not allowed. It is one of three areas in the United States that does not allow snowboarding.
There is a spirit to Alta. Perhaps it is because generations of skiers have been able to pass on their love for the mountain. It may be because there is a bit of a “purist’s” feel for those who choose to ski here. Whatever the reasons, Alta is a place that many local and destination skiers choose to call home.
