2012 has started out with spectacular blue skies and lots of great groomed slopes for carving turns. Skiers ride the lifts bathed in sunlight and enjoy the opportunity to have a more relaxed pace on the mountain following the holiday season. As guests depart, new guests arrive and first time Alta skiers are afforded the unspoiled view of the mountains at Alta. The mountains draped in snow when the sun is out are mesmerizing and a trip to mountains does wonders for the soul. If you’re here in January, you truly do get away from it all. No driving, no cooking, no dish washing—just ski, eat, sleep and repeat. Cozy up to the fireplace with a book or newspaper in the late afternoon or take a well-earned nap before après ski.
Ah yes, 2012 is off to a great start with three and half more months of skiing.
