Two ski resorts in Utah named Alta and Snowbird are being praised in this article. Reasons for taking a trip to the ski resorts include value, food, exploration, snow quality, helicopters, history and culture. The article makes an effort to appeal to people of all skill levels, offering terrain that is appropriate for both beginners and more experienced skiers.
- Utah is famous for light, dry powder and tons of it. With around 400” of snow each year at Alta and Snowbird, your chance of scoring a powder day is high.
- Alta, especially, has some outstanding beginner terrain. The Albion base takes advantage of the Canyon’s most gentle slopes and is the home of Alta’s ski school.
- At Snowbird, intermediate skiers and riders can find groomed and ungroomed terrain from the top of every major lift, sometimes just a short cat track away.
“Powder days can be intense when ropes drop and unopened terrain becomes available. Be prepared to go fast or get passed.”
