Where to Ski in Utah? There are so many places to choose from, not only are we a fabulous place to live but we have a wide variety of activities year round for people to enjoy …. Like SKIING! As I sit here on this snowy Sunday my thoughts go to Ski season. While we are not quite ready, my son and daughter need new ski boots and my son wants new skies and of course my daughter wants a new outfit (yes skiing can be expensive too) I can’t wait to hit the slopes.Back in 2006 my son is almost 16 now and my daughter almost 13 wow times goes by so fast
First off let me start by saying I grew up in Washington State. I never skied until Senior Skip day and after that a few times in college. I truly didn’t start skiing until we moved to Utah 11 years ago. Matter of fact I think while I can get down the blue runs no problem and the black runs every so slowly I am in fact no “fun to watch” although it maybe funny….. My son will fly by and say mom you are going way tooooo sloooooooooow… I have to laugh because you know what…. it hurts to crash and I would rather go slow and make it down then crash and get hurt. I guess getting older has its benefits when it comes to some thought processes. Speaking of older this picture was taken in 2006 my kids are now almost 16 and 13! yikes!!! *
Our favorite location is Alta. We are a family of skiers. We do not snowboard and Alta is one of the few places where it is still Skiers only. It only takes us 20 minutes from the minute we sit our buns down in the car to the minute we sit on a chair lift and are on our way up the mountain. We are very lucky to live so close to our favorite winter place.
So when does the 2013-2014 season start? NOVEMBER 22nd!! is the plan weather permitting and if it keeps snowing like today, we will be up there enjoying the season by then.
For ticket information, times, pricing and all the important information you will need to know about Alta go visit their site or their youtube channel! LOVE IT.
Oh another thing! in the summer months Alta has some great hiking trails… so if you are into Hiking, I’ll write more about those later.
Enjoy! and I’ll see ya on the slopes!
*interested in living somewhere affordable and so close to world class skiing? I’d love to help!
