Alta in detail
The Alta-Snowbird Pass (adult/child $128/84) permits access to both areas for a stunning 4700 acres of skiing. Expert powder hounds should ask about off-piste snow-cat skiing in Grizzly Gulch.
No lifts run in summer, but there are 10 miles of local trails.
After 3pm you can ski for free on the Sunnyside lift at Alta. The program is set up to get beginners – or those for whom it's been a while – onto the slopes.
