My Experience as a Keely's Camp for Girls Coach

| August 23rd, 2017 | By Guest Blogger


When the campers arrive at Keely’s Camp for Girls, they are quiet and unsure of what to expect.  Parents’ drop their girls off at the Mazama hiking lodge in the forest above Government Camp, Oregon.  As a coach, my job is to greet the new campers and coax them away from the comfort of their parent’s car and into the jungle that is the thirty girl bunkroom where the campers will be spending the week.  “Get settled,” I tell them.  “Dinner at 6:00pm and camp meeting directly after.”

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.

Alta Vacation Bucket List

| February 16th, 2017 | By Taylor Strand


Whether you are local, frequent visitor, or this is your first trip to the magical town of Alta, you may find yourself overwhelmed by all the wonderful options around you. There are so many beautiful sights to see, secret places to grub down, historical establishments to hang at and even locals you might want to meet. I wanted to take some time to line out a few of these options in a quick Alta checklist. Keep in mind these are just suggestions, but come highly recommended by a collaborative group of the Alta community and myself.

What many may criticize about Alta are what I believe make it a great ski area. The hikes, traverses, stashes and side-steps are all things that have kept me coming back for almost a decade and a half. On February 13th-16th I’m excited to team up with Kim Reichhelm’s Steep Skiing Camp at Alta and hit up all my favorite spots. To get you warmed up, I put together a brief overview of the variety of skiing that Alta provides and some unique skills it has afforded me.

The Hour of Power

| December 26th, 2016 | By Taylor Strand


Whether it’s that job, class, family, or some other responsibility I have found the importance of sneaking away for a little self-reflection time. For me, it happens during what some of the locals refer to as “The Hour of Power.”
