Why Ski Alta?People often ask on the chair lift why I like to ski at Alta. I always mention that Alta is refreshing as a ski resort because it's a town that just happens to have the Alta Ski Lift Co. as the largest employer. All the lodges are independantly owned. There's a police department, library, post office and townhall. Alta is a local's ski hill where everyone knows each other.
If you're a skier, and haven't skied at Alta, you owe it to yourself to get here. Stay at the Alta Peruvian or the Alta Lodge for an authenticate Wasatch ski culture experience.
