Alta Ski Resort

Alta Mountain is most famous for one quirk: Only skiers are allowed on its slopes. What you sacrifice in Alta snowboarding, however, you more than gain in local atmosphere. 

This Utah gem is among the most scenic places in the area to book ski vacation packages, and its picture-worthy weather and powder-light snow make the 2,200 acres of skiable terrain an absolute pleasure. 

What’s more, Alta Ski Area was designed with every level in mind. Though the peak boasts a vertical gain of more than 2,000 feet, nearly half of the resort’s 116 runs are suited for beginners and intermediates. Its challenging spots, on the other hand, utterly epitomize the concept; locals and tourists alike pay special reverence to Alta skiing icons like Stone Crusher and Baldy Chutes. If you’re searching for an adrenaline-pumping adventure, focus your lift tickets and ski rentals on these pitches.

Alta ski getaways are also particularly good for families. Not only will you find a hands-on ski school and ski tours appropriate for all age groups, but you’ll also be able to track down discount deals and low prices on rentals and tickets throughout the season. Plus, there’s plenty to do for any type of traveler. Teenagers can check out the night skiing, thrill-seeking parents can take a pass at the heli skiing, and everyone can enjoy an apres-run meal at the base and mid-mountain eateries. When it comes to the top UT ski vacations, Alta is a shining star
