Alta Other Activities

The latest thing at Alta is cross-country or skate skiing, after which you may need one of the massage therapists who will come to your ski accommodations.

The newest thing to do at Alta is cross-country or skate skiing on a three-mile (5-km) groomed track. Track tickets are only available at the Wildcat Base ticket office. There's a full range of classic skate, telemark, and snowshoe gear with sales of clothing, coffee, shakes and rentals. Lessons are available at the Alf Engen Ski School. Also available is snowcat skiing.

There are four ski stores with rental and retail, but the shopping opportunities are not extensive at Alta-that's not the reason most people come here. Several massage therapists will come to your ski accommodations to soothe away stressed muscles. Check out the Alta website, www.alta.com, for details.
