This episode of the SnowBrains Podcast is brought to you by Alta Ski Area
There are few precious places in the world like Alta, an independently-owned ski area since 1938. Nestled at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon deep in the Wasatch, Alta is a skier’s-only mountain, known around the globe for its powder skiing. With an annual snowfall average of 538 inches, powder days are a way of life.
Alta Ski Area, home to one of the first ski areas to open in the United States and the birthplace of avalanche forecasting and mitigation in North America. The skiing technique, lifts, lodges and ski gear have changed with the times, but there is a timeless spirit at Alta that remains. Perhaps it is because generations of skiers have been able to pass on their love for the mountain.
Alta Ski Area, home of the biggest average annual snowfall in the Rocky Mountains
