Lloyd Johnson's Alta Experience

Lloyd Johnson's Alta Experience

| January 16th, 2017 | By Guest Blogger

Many people have been calling Alta home for quite some time, and the reasons vary from person to person. Whatever reason yours may be, many of us can agree that the people are what make it such a special place. Lloyd Johnson is one of those people.

Lloyd moved out for work in 1973 and had never skied before. One Sunday when Lloyd was here at Alta for church a man asked him if he was a skier. The answer was "no". So they went up that Sunday and Lloyd learned to snowplow. From that point on Lloyd was a skier for life, and he soon discovered that Alta was the place for him. Watch the video on what keeps Lloyd coming back year after year.

Thank you, Lloyd, for sharing your story with us. Thank you also to Louis Arevalo for putting together such a wonderful video.
