Skiing Alta is excellent. Skiing powder at Alta is more excellent. Skiing powder at Alta with a bunch of rad friends is most excellent. Read along, share in the stoke and look at cool pics!
Alta is a beautiful ski resort. From the breathtaking views to the world class skiing and expansive terrain, there's something for everybody here.
I left the last blog I wrote on November 28th with the quote "Is it time for skiing yet??" and it apparently was, given my absence from this blog.
An early snow season means hiking season just got a whole lot more intense. Instead of hiking with an intense pack, sweating the entire time and swatting away bugs, I put on some snow-pants, tie up my snowboarding boots, strap a snowboard to my pack, grab my poles, and head up the mountain!
There's some snow in Utah! Actually, quite a bit of snow! While the valley still looks like fall for the most part, driving 30 to 40 minutes up the canyon will get you into an early winter.
