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. Since we moved to the United States 3 years ago my family and I have 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.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TRIP
Alta Ski resort
Salt Lake City
GOOD TO KNOW
Beware that snowboarders are not allowed in the resort! Choose Snowbird if you are not a skier.
Very few hotels & rentals in Alta. In peak season, you have to book well in advance.
Very easy access to the resort from Salt Lake City International and only 40 minutes away
Salt Lake City is a well-served airport from all US main cities. It is easy to find good fares and direct flights.
When you rent a cottage, they offer a grocery shopping service. You send your list well in advance and get it directly in your fridge (even beer and wine)
Beware: there are no grocery stores in Alta. Buy your provisions for the week in the valley.
Ski tickets: special family season offer that was much more economical than paying for 7 full days of skiing.
You can get a ski pass for Alta/Snowbird. We stayed in Alta and didn’t feel the need to ski but you can always extend your pass for one day to Snow Bird.
Road conditions can be tough. If you rent a car you will need winter tires and snow chains (mandatory).
