My first day. Not bad at all, and snow is on the way. I’m by myself – next month with a bunch of guys from work. I ski a few places in Utah, but always find my way back to Alta. I think if you asked people if they only had one day left in their skiing lives, where would they go — most people would answer here.

The Times, in a December review said,
Picture the thrifty consumer who buys only one new sweater every few years but spends good money on a quality one. That’s the type of skier Alta attracts. For 70 years, the Utah resort has been known for its no-frills approach, letting the challenging terrain and abundant snow speak for itself.. Alta offers few temptations for spendthrifts. Hard-core skiers come here to ski (snowboarding is still verboten), not to ride fancy gondolas or blow their budgets at trendy boutiques or aromatherapy spas.
Here’s a video I took of the ‘crowds’. I love being in the woods.
