Crisp clear mornings with the sun gliding over the newly fallen snow up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah are some of my favorite mornings. You see the texture of the soft powdery snow, the tracks of animals foraging for food and a peaceful feeling settles into your heart – but then a bubbling of excitement swells in your chest as you realize you live Utah where the greatest snow and skiing on earth is. Being a local here I wanted to tell you why Alta Ski Resort is the best ski resort in Utah, and arguably the entire world.
This ski mountain and resort as a whole is vastly under-rated in my opinion. I grew up on these mountains, I remember hitting a powdery mogul between the trees flying head over heels down the mountain backwards on my behind while people laughed and pointed from the ski lift. I remember many adventures on the mountain with my sisters. Years later coming back and being a part of the medical clinic on one of my rotations when I was in school to become a Physician Assistant.
It isn’t just the nostalgia of this put, it is the unadulterated, raw, rough beauty that Alta has that I feel is a representation of Utah and the incredible winter sports at its finest. If you ask a local where to ski, they will likely send you to Sundance, Deer Valley, or Park City because that is where they want the tourists to congregate and leave the pristine skiing for the locals to be less crowded. #altaskiresort #Bestskiresortinutah #utahwinteractivities

Hi! Welcome to the Culture Trekking Community! My name is Janiel Green, a Physician Assistant, Scuba Diver, Dog lover, Photographer, and Videographer! I love to make people smile, am known for not beating around the bush (unless it is in my garden). I also tend to say it as I see it before my brain can tell me its probably not socially acceptable to do so. My spirit animal is a Sea Turtle, I despise mushrooms, and don’t trust a man who lays on the romance too thick.
I love to travel the world, connect with different cultures, and find sustainable adventure. I have explored the most off the beaten path places, and cultures throughout the world. This year I’m taking you along as I explore my hometown, UTAH! From Anasazi Ruins in Southern Utah, to the High Uintah Mountains best waterfalls and camping locations.
Life isn’t always simple, and I have had my just share of heartache. I have been through the thick of it with those internal battles we all have. Now I’m completely dedicated to inspiring you on the inside to better explore the outside and find beauty between the lines of the contrasts of life. I’m so excited to have you here!
