ALTA

Alta is one of the best we've been too, loads of different terrain, something for everyone I can highly recommend it. Alta is also in the Cottonwood Canyon the same as Solitude however today was nothing like yesterday snow, wind and cold but even so Alta came up trumps definitely worth a revisit.
Tomorrow will be our last day skiing in America so it will be back to Park City which since we've been in Utah is our local ski area and in my opinion the best of them all.
Big Sky seems a long while ago now, probably because we've seen and done so many fantastic things, tomorrow evening Angus and I have decided to sit down and write up our final thoughts and feelings on America, it has been such a great experience I think we are going to find it hard to find the words to sum it all up.

Hi Guys,
Well the last quite days before the rest of the tribe desend on you both !! I would suggest that you both start rembering how to tidy up or use the excuse that the snow has been so deep that you don't know where you put things.

Anyway, it all looks good still and sounds it as well, (apart from no photo's from "Alta")is the reason for no photo's due to the fact that you have both eaten so much that you would take up the complete frame???.

Having read uncle Bucks comments I would stay clear of high peaks or any local brew or anything that that could or would have a minded numbing or changing effect.

All is boring as usual at home, although with the gas works and people having to think before they try and leave / enter the village there is a slight variation on our theme.

Ski safe keep blogging and we look forward to the next episode.

Love P & J
