The 2019-20 is Alta Ski Area’s 82nd ski season serving up lift served skiing. Alta started out as a mining town and in 1938 the first chairlift was scooping skiers up to earn powder turns. A nightly booking at all lodges includes breakfast and dinner. Alta receives an average yearly snowfall of 547” inches with 2,614 skiable acres. “If you can see it, you can it.” With six chairlifts, a little side-stepping or traversing may be required to get you to that powder stash you’ve been eyeing from the lift. Come for the skiing. Stay for the skiing. That’s the Alta Magic.
