The story behind one of America's oldest ski areas

It is one of the oldest ski areas in the United States,

and arguably one of the most beautiful. Alta, located

at the head of Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah's

Wasatch mountain range, officially became a ski

area in 1939, and is now one of the country's top

skiing destinations. It averages 500 inches of snow a

season and attracts skiers from around the world, but

how Alta came to be is where the real story lies.

From miners and loggers to publishers and mayors to Olympians and engineers - meet the people behind Alta with historical footage and present day interviews in The Alta Experience, previously seen on public television. See film of Alf Engen, the champion ski jumper who first recommended Alta becomes a ski area and, later, developed powder skiing. Find out how some "spare" parts were used to build Utah's first chair lift. Plus, enjoy spectacular scenes of the mountain today and fully appreciate the beauty that is Alta.
