Alta attracts artists. This is Skier Services employee Le Grand Johnston showing off the glass snowflake necklaces he makes. Le Grand also paints, blows glass and makes ceramics. You can see more of his art at berntworks.com.
We had beautiful spring skiing today with warm temps, clear skies and great corn snow. Jacinda Isabey, visiting from New Hampshire, takes full advantage of the conditions, laying down some nice troughs on Razor Back.
Today is the annual Alta biathlon, in which Alta employees and community members compete with skate skis, bow and arrows to find out who's the best. It's a serious contest and people have been training and making all kinds of ludicrous claims for weeks, now. This is the 3rd year Alta Ski Shop tuner Jack (pictured) has built a ski chair for the grand prize. Lucy, Alta Ski Patrol's cutest and most popular employee, was included in the picture just for the page views.
