David Davenport board member Alta Historical Society will host the KUED documentary “The Alta Experience” which highlights the intrepid personalities who helped create Alta. From the Norwegian immigrant and ski jump champion Alf Engen, who recommended Alta as an ideal site for a ski resort to the U.S. Forest Service, to George Watson, one of the last remaining silver miners, who helped bring about the development of the resort. It also explores early avalanche control innovations at Alta as well “big air” competitions at the annual Gelande jumps during the 1960s and '70s, and the motive behind the resort’s unique no-snowboarding policy.”
