A Message From Our GM, Mike Maughan

Why the Baldy Tram?

• Currently Alta Ski Area uses artillery, avalaunchers and helicopter bombing to do avalanche mitigation work on North and East facing Mount Baldy. The use of artillery and avalaunchers for avalanche mitigation work is being phased out and may not be available in the future. If we are unable to do avalanche mitigation work on Mount Baldy a significant amount of terrain we currently ski would be closed frequently.

• Artillery and avalauchers cannot be used for avalanche mitigation work on Mount Baldy during the day when Alta and Snowbird are open to the public. Consequently, we are often required to close this area during a storm or wind cycle. A tram will reduce the number of daytime closures.

• The Mount Baldy tram supplemented with remote avalanche control devices will allow Alta to do avalanche mitigation work on Mount Baldy without the use of artillery and avalaunchers.
