On March 24th, 2023, Alta Ski Area broke its all-time season snowfall record of 748″ set in the winter of 1981-82.

Less than a week later, the resort surpassed 800″.

On April 25th,  7″ of new snow put the legendary Utah ski area over the 900-inch mark for the first time in its history. 

Alta, which closed on Sunday, April 23rd, recorded snow through the end of April and finished with a 903″ season snowfall total.

In March, at its deepest point last season, Alta had a base of over 200″—something that hasn’t happened at the resort since the winter of 2010-11.

These before and after photos taken at Alta last season need no explanation to show exactly what that 903″ of snow and 200″+ base looked like. 

What will this year bring?
