  2. Main Chute – Rarely opens but when Ski Patrol drops the gate at the EBT skiers everywhere on the mountain flock to this steep chute.
  3. Eddie’s High Nowhere – Hard to catch fresh but if you’re one of the first 10 people dropping in to this line you’ll be rewarded with the most back to back pow turns on the mountain.
  4. Patsy Marley – Technically not considered part of Alta’s inbounds, terrain it still deserves a spot on the top 10 list.
  5. Eagle’s Nest – Easily one of the best areas on the mountain during a storm day.
  6. Bad News – A great spot for huckers to tee off without having to travel out into Rocky Point to find soft landings.
  7. West Buffler – Actually called West Rustler this area consists of a number of tree chutes that on the right day can quickly keep a skier coming back run after run.
  8. Westward Ho – If you’re looking for a natural slopestyle course this is the place.
  9. Devil’s Castle – Normally remaining closed days after the last storm this area will give you a shot for redemption if you were stuck at work during the last dump.
  10. Supreme Bowl – Short but sweet, this area contains some of Alta’s most defined chutes.
  11. Bonus Run: Keyhole – Although technically part of Snowbird’s terrain, this area is more conveniently accessed through Alta’s gates.
