2011 Ski Salt Lake Logo - Print: JPG full colorSALT LAKE CITY, November 1, 2011--Salt Lake ski resorts topped the charts of the 2011 SKI Magazine reader survey, earning Top Ten rankings in more than 10 different categories. Highlights include Alta receiving the #1 nomination for Overall Satisfaction, Character, Snow as well as being ranked the Top Skier’s Mountain.

“These honors,” said Alta’s General Manager Onno Wieringa, “have more to do with our incredible terrain and the geographical advantages of where our mountain sits in the Wasatch. We try to do the best we can as a ski area to match our grooming, snow safety and lifts with the natural advantages we have.”  

All four Cottonwood resorts were ranked in the top ten listings for Snow, Weather, and Access. A complete ranking breakdown of all four Ski Salt Lake resorts can be found below:
