On The Lift With Neil Amonson

On The Lift With Neil Amonson

| February 27th, 2017 | By Colton Rice

Have you ever noticed that besides the “deepest days of your life,” some of the most memorable experiences from your ski day or ski vacation happen on the lift? Maybe it was the long time local sharing his secret stashes or the Alta employee giving you the lowdown on the après ski scene. Or maybe still it was the conversation with the strangely dressed individual or that guy or girl who you later realized was a  pro skier.

“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.

This week, we took ride up Wildcat with Neil Amonson. When Neil isn't flying planes, jumping out of them, or skiing, he's skydiving into schools to encourage kids to follow their passions with his Jump 4 Joy non-profit.
