Lift operator Mike Snell taking some time off from this view to take a picture. Bluebird skies and a front row seat to views of Mt Superior. Mike may have the best seat in the house at the top of Collins. Feelings of jealousy are understandable...
George Jedenoff has been skiing at Alta since the early 60's and is going strong at 99.5 years old. He and his son Nick pose in front of Alta Lodge where they both remember staying long ago. George learned to ski on the Lodge Tow right next to Alta Lodge. Nick and George joined us again over the last couple days, as they do every year, and we can't wait to have them back again next year!
If you have skied Alta there is a good chance that this is a familiar sight. Familiar, but welcome. The quintessential meeting spot at the top of the Collins lift had a stunning view of Superior today.
The Tonka at Wildcat makes it official - Christmas was a Mighty Dump at Alta. With 9 inches in the last 24 hours for a 20-inch storm total at the end of the day, I don't think you're going to find any Alta skier who says this isn't the best Christmas ever.
