Alta Vacation Bucket List

| February 16th, 2017 | By Taylor Strand


Whether you are local, frequent visitor, or this is your first trip to the magical town of Alta, you may find yourself overwhelmed by all the wonderful options around you. There are so many beautiful sights to see, secret places to grub down, historical establishments to hang at and even locals you might want to meet. I wanted to take some time to line out a few of these options in a quick Alta checklist. Keep in mind these are just suggestions, but come highly recommended by a collaborative group of the Alta community and myself.

The other process that is moving along is that of choosing the position structures and folks to replace my position. Our Board has picked long-time Alta employee Mike Maughan to be our next General Manager (GM). We are now working with Mike to help him select a well-rounded, capable Operations Manager (OM) to help him. I will work with Mike and whoever is named OM through May.

What many may criticize about Alta are what I believe make it a great ski area. The hikes, traverses, stashes and side-steps are all things that have kept me coming back for almost a decade and a half. On February 13th-16th I’m excited to team up with Kim Reichhelm’s Steep Skiing Camp at Alta and hit up all my favorite spots. To get you warmed up, I put together a brief overview of the variety of skiing that Alta provides and some unique skills it has afforded me.

The Hour of Power

| December 26th, 2016 | By Taylor Strand


Whether it’s that job, class, family, or some other responsibility I have found the importance of sneaking away for a little self-reflection time. For me, it happens during what some of the locals refer to as “The Hour of Power.”

| November 15th, 2016 | By Colton Rice


Now that we are into November we have a new President Elect and the climate continues to be variable.  Our slopes are slowly accumulating a little snow on the high north facing slopes of Mt. Baldy, Devil’s Castle and Gunsight – and now we patiently wait on Mother Nature to bless us with winter weather and snowfall.

On The Lift With Bryon Friedman

“On The Lift With,” aims to introduce you to the people and personalities that make Alta the unique place that it is. Our goal is to ask them the questions that you’ve always wanted to but didn’t get the chance. What brought them to Alta? What do they do now?
