“On The Lift With,” aims to introduce you to the people and personalities that make Alta the unique place that it is. Our goal is to ask them the questions that you’ve always wanted to but didn’t get the chance. What brought them to Alta? What do they do now? And what has kept them here?  Naturally, we’re doing it from the only place that makes sense – the lift.

Powder Days Are Here Again

| 1 Comment | December 29th, 2015 | By Drew Petersen


My first turn provided; a wave of snow enveloped my body and rushed over my face. I transitioned to my next turn, seemingly with no effort. I felt weightless as I dove back into the deep. Involuntarily, I let out a yell, allowing myself to become fully present in the euphoric experience. Over my shoulders, I heard hoots and hollers from my fellow skiers, who were just as happy as me. The rhythm continued for the entire run. Turn, face shot. Turn, face shot. Yell. Turn, face shot. Giggle. Turn, face shot.

The Lift Ticket That Changed Everything

The Lift Ticket That Changed Everything

| June 23rd, 2015 | By Adam Fehr


I recently came across the saved ticket while packing and moving in Salt Lake. Storm total 30 inches – interlodged, it read. I’ve experienced deeper cycles since, but this one was special. “Snowbird shut down the tram,” said one guy on the chair. The whipping wind and steady snow was too much to handle, and yet Alta was relatively quiet. Couch surfing at photographer Re Wikstrom’s house, who had recently learned the ins and outs of Alta’s stashes, our posse zipped across the High-T.

Goodbye Alta, Hello Powder Magazine

| June 2nd, 2015 | By Adam Fehr


I have moved away from the Wasatch for now, to Southern California, but just for the summer. It seems wild, but I moved here to continue chasing my love and passion for the sport of skiing. I will be working as the Editorial Intern at Powder Magazine. I may be 750 miles away from Alta, but these are just the people and just the environment that understands why I didn’t hesitate when I chose to ski Main Chute this past weekend.

Gelande Memories

| May 7th, 2015 | By Joe Johnson


The t-shirt is old. In fact, it's old, faded and torn. But the memories are as fresh as the freshest freshies. Thirty years ago, I got to see some of the best gelande skl jumpers ever go off of a jump that has seen some of the greatest skiers in history go off of it, including an old friend of Alta named Alf Engen.

A Man and His Chinook

| March 19th, 2015 | By Joe Johnson


Parked at the far north end of the Wildcat parking lot, the retro Chinook camper stood out like a beacon of ski bum supremacy. Already on my way to the Peruvian Bar for apres, I figured I might as well stop by and get to know this person that was livin’ the dream.

A Well-Timed Weekend

| January 31st, 2015 | By Colin Hamman


Would you trade one hour of Utah’s “Greatest Snow on Earth” for three hours in a car? After this weekend, I can be convinced that this would be a good deal. One full day of classic Alta snow and company was well worth the almost 22 hours in a car that it took to get there and back.
