You will enjoy the famous 70’s style powder haven of Alta Ski Resort. It is a big resort with great terrain but with a small laidback resort feel. It is famous for good reason as it averages the most snow in Utah at 547 inches / 13.9 m, more than its neighboring Snowbird as it is at the end of the Little Cottonwood Canyon and snow storms hang here a little longer. Also with no Snowboarders allowed Alta is a powder haven. There are no large hotel or condo complexes. It looks and feels like the 70’s as it is all about the skiing here!
