Skiing at Alta

Mere birthright alone doth not a Utahn create. What makes a true local? We say it is not the number of years you've lived within Zion's borders, but rather the zeal with which you explore all our state has to offer. If you're new, or if you're questioning your right to citizenship, we're here to help, with this refresher course. Every other week, we'll bring you a quintessential Utah-to-do experience. Check back for another to check off your list.

Christmas is over, and now it's back to the daily grind—at least until New Year's Day. Take some time out for yourself on the slopes and work off those cookies. Our suggestion: Call in and ski the fresh powder at Alta. The resort has been in operation for 75 years, making it quintessential Utah.
