One of only three remaining resorts in the United States that prohibit snowboards, Alta is for skiers. And Alta’s ski-anything mantra is best exemplified not by what it does, but by what it doesn’t do. The resort preserves individuals’ ski experiences by consciously deciding not to put a lift in every last nook and cranny. The entire ski area has just six lifts, which means you might have to work a little to find your favorite spot.

I hope my story helps inspire the next generation of skiers to also find confidence in the mountains and in the world!

While probably a minor footnote in the storied history of Alta snowfall, this past week saw some of the best skiing in recent memory. Between noon Saturday and Thursday morning, 60 inches of new snow fell on the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Just in time for the MLK holiday weekend, a winter storm cycle made its way to the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Between January 16 and January 25th, Alta received over seven feet of snow—approximately the height of a polar bear standing on its hind legs. Needless to say, that's a lot of snow.

Moving to Alta was the best decision I've ever made.
