Alta Ski Area, one of the world's premier ski resorts. Alta's unique location in the Little Cottonwood Canyon, just east of the Great Salt Lake, allows for huge lake-effect storms to dump copious amounts of dry powder snow at the resort, even when neighboring ski areas (primarily those in Park City) and Salt Lake City receive little or no snow. This has led to Alta being ranked #1 in North America for Snow quality, Powder, and Value by Skiing Magazine.

The slogan, "Alta is for skiers" is more than just a marketing ploy, as many skiers feel that Alta's culture and atmosphere of "old school" or "authentic" ski culture is the way skiing should be.
