Late last month one of our long time Alta characters, Gordy Alcott, passed away. Gordy was a part-time patroller when I started on the patrol in 1972 and, as the included late 30’s picture shows, was one of the four original Alta Ski Patrollers.

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.

Steep Ski Blog by Pep Fujas

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.

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.”

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.
