In January, my dad, Brian and I took our yearly ski trip to Alta Ski Resort in Salt Lake City, UT. What I love about Alta is it's all about skiing - no frills or hot coco breaks - just you, the mountain and endless exploration. Every time I've gone the skiing never disappoints, and every run is a different thrill. I recommend it to every lover of skiing and adventure!
While we were there they opened East Castle, which is hardly ever open, and even though they hadn't seen snow in more than a week, we were able to experience those powdery fresh tracks that every skier dreams about!
They say Utah has the best snow on earth, and Alta is the creme de la creme. To give you an idea, Alta's current base (in mid-March) is 83", while Vail sits at almost less than half at 43".
My family's heading there again next week for spring break and I couldn't be more jealous. Tear it up you guys!
