Message From Alta's GM, Mike Maughan

| July 11th, 2017 | By Guest Blogger


For those who don't know, I became Alta's fourth GM and President in early June. I began at Alta in 1990 and was tasked with moving accounting in-house and creating Alta's IT department. Eventually I became the CFO and have been part of the management team of the ski area for many years.  The past 27 years have deepened my understanding and love of Alta, its culture and the people who live, work and visit this special place.

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.

| 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.

We can all agree that the landscape here at Alta is a beautiful thing. It’s fall now and the plants are all changing, showcasing a mosaic of beautiful colors along the hills. What you may not know is that there is a substantial amount of effort going on behind the scenes to keep it this way.
