If you have skied Alta before you don’t have to be told how great it is. Hands-down one of the best ski resorts in the country. With access to Snowbird through Mineral Basin or over the Keyhole, the Alta ski experience doesn’t get any better. Kim has had a love affair with Alta since her big mountain free-skiing days, when she trained at Alta for competitions. Steep Skiing Camps were created for clients who wanted to take an Alaska Heli Skiing adventure and a Portillo Ski trip. This is the perfect training ground for skiers who really want to take it to the next level.
Guided skiing and instruction from Kim Reichhelm and Greg Harms plus two Alta ski patrol escorts make this Steep Camp unique. It is limited to 12 expert skiers willing to ski Alta including traversing and hiking to reach the best snow and terrain. Focus is on improving technique on steep slopes, tight trees, powder, and crud. Days start early, sometimes an hour before the lifts open to the public, and go all day with a nice break for lunch. Hiking Baldy, Devils Castle, snow cat skiing off the top of Superior and trips to Snowbird are all a part of the Ski with Kim experience in Alta. Apres ski in the beautiful Rustler Bar allows us to watch our daily videos, discuss equipment and talk about future ski trips around the world.
