So far, during the month of January, Alta has received snow, snow and more snow. 45 inches to date this year with more snow in the forecast this week. The base is 68 inches which means great coverage all over the mountain. The Daily Pow captured footage of some of the recent fun skiing conditions.
The MLK weekend brought in lots of skiers, many of whom spent inordinate amounts of time in a slow drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon followed by very limited parking options. The same scenario is often repeated on powder days. If you’re visiting from out of town, save yourself the hassle and consider staying at Alta Lodge. There are a variety of lodging options, from dorms to large corner rooms, with breakfast and dinner included.
