Here's a look into a typical morning at Alta that shows the tireless work of the parking crew, the meticulous work of the grooming crew, the sizzle of bacon in the kitchen and hustle of Alta ski patrol and lifties.

Before Alta opens at 9:15 each morning, there are countless hours of labor that take place behind the scenes. Follow along as Alta Ski Area comes to life, culminating in powder turns that keep generations of Alta skiers coming back each season.

With 272" on the season, a 93" base and more snow on the way, now would be a great time join us for a day of skiing or book that ski trip to Alta.
