Top 10 Ski Resorts According To Forbes – #3, Alta

Editor’s Note – these are not LMSG’s rankings. As a matter of fact we wholeheartedly disagree with the good people at Forbes but everyone is entitled to an opinion, even if they are wrong! Let us know what you think and we’ll add the best comments.

No big changes at this Utah stalwart, which benefits from the most prolific quality snowfall of any major ski resort in the world. And yes, we do categorize Alta as a major ski resort, even though it may not include some of the frilly fixings and luxury lodging and dining that have become standard across much of the industry.

Alta doesn’t need that stuff. It has terrain and snow that are the envy of the rest of the ski world. Very much the envy of snowboarders, a group who, if they want to enjoy this special corner of the earth, will have to strap into stiff boots and two planks, rather than one.

Great shots exist everywhere at Alta. It’s a place where boot packs and long traverses are as common as ski lifts. Most of the best shots in this part of Little Cottonwood Canyon require some kind of work to be skied. Alta does not offer up its best to those who only ride the chair, to those whose way of ascent comes by way of an electric pulley. Normal skiers can get hero shots at Alta, it’s true, but those magazine-quality powder lines don’t offer themselves up to the standard resort skier.
