The steep incline drive up the steep valley is impressive and very scenic. We stopped on the last day of spring and there was still small amounts of snow for the kids to play in.

Alta Ski resort is a beautiful Ski resort on the Wasatch range. The place has some breathtaking views and is best for Ski. Simply out of the world. This pictures of this place can be easily mistook as Switzerland. Beautiful place.

Don't skip this mountain playground as it offers terrain that you dream about. The snow conditions are usually ideal with enough variety for everyone to enjoy

I am not sure, we took the ski bus in from the city the 2 days we were there. We stored our stuff for the day in Goldminers. There are racks and lockers, not sure about ski storage.
