Connie KnabSki School Instructor
It’s amazing to work with a dedicated group of people who share the love and respect for the greatness of Alta. At the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, Alta’s dynamic beauty, awesome weather and authentic mountain ski experience is what draws me to Alta year after year. I have been a full-time ski instructor for the Alf Engen Ski School since 1998 and work the summer season as an Alta Summer Host.
Mel TattonFront Office Manager
I have been a part of this incredible team since 2006. Working in the front office, I have had the honor to welcome so many people from all over the world to experience the “Magic of Alta.” Alta encourages an active lifestyle…we work hard, we play (ski) hard. Alta is such a wonderful place—from the people I get to work with to the romantic alpenglow at the end of our day.

I’ve been coming to Alta to ski since high school and instantly fell in love with the mountains and community. Ever since that first trip, I wanted to do anything I could to spend every day up at Alta. In 2019 when I graduated from college, I was able to make that dream come true. This will be my third winter working at Alta and I love every second of it! Between the smiles on people’s faces and the skiing, it’s hard to beat. Once you spend one winter here you’ll never want to leave that “Alta Magic”.
