One thing that’s hard to beat is a sunny day after an Alta storm. And several sunny days are even better. Last week and the weekend were days of great skiing and beautiful weather. First time skiers at Alta were supercharged with the magnitude of the mountains.
Aleisha is from Chicago and this was her first visit to Alta. A beginner skier, she skied runs accessed from Sunnyside and Cecret lifts.
Great views of Greely Hill in Albion Basin with Baldy Mtn. in the background. Sugarloaf chairlift takes skiers to the pass where they can ski down to the lift again, go over to Collins or Supreme lift or ski to Snowbird if they have an Altabird lift ticket.
Beginner skiers Grant and Esteban were practicing turns and stopping on the rope tow hill. Once proficient at those skills, it was off to the chair lifts!
Here’s a video from last Monday’s Alta Storm
