Skiing At Alta
Alta Ski Area
There is a spirit to Alta. Perhaps it is because generations of skiers have been able to pass on their love for the mountain to family and friends. Alta became a ski area the winter season of 1938-39. A passionate group of local businessmen and relief from the tax burdens of a long-time Alta miner were the catalysts for the formation of Alta. Alta was the first ski area in Utah to install a lift, two years behind Sun Valley, Idaho’s installation in 1936. Alta grew slowly, building new lifts as the numbers of skiers grew and working with businesses in the area to provide day shelters and eventually lodging.
