To the Alta Family, Read
As we approach the end of our 80th ski season we want to thank you for your support of Alta Ski Area. While Mother Nature was a little stingy with the snowfall this season, we believe that we had the best snow and skiing in Utah, which was confirmed daily by visitors to Alta. We are open for skiing for three more weekends. The forecast is for unsettled weather during the next three weeks so more face shots may be a possibility. If not snow, we are looking for sunshine and spring skiing conditions. We hope you take the opportunity to carve a few more turns before putting your skis away for the summer.

At Alta, we strive to provide authentic skiing experiences in a natural mountain environment. An important part of the Alta experience is having an appropriate balance between the number of skiers on the mountain and the terrain open for skiing. It is something we consider in every decision we make that may impact visitation to Alta. Read

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. Read
