ALEXIS’ SKI TRIP
TO ALTA-UTAH, US.
7 NIGHTS/1 STOP
An amazing ski trip to Alta. The hotspot for powder snow!
My name is Alexis I have been skiing since I was little kid in Switzerland. When we lived in the United States, we explored ski resorts around the United States. This time we headed for a ski trip to Utah and skied in Alta for one week. It snowed all day long and we just could jump and play in the powder in the middle of the trees! We loved the atmosphere of the village: every morning the shuttle bus would drive us to the ski slopes. This provided us with the opportunity to chat with the bus driver about snow and slope conditions and get weather updates. Our budget for the whole trip was around $2500 per person for 8 nights (excluded food and activities) .
