Yeah, I know -- I've been bad. That's set to change shortly.

Here's a video wrap-up of Alta from the first closing weekend April 14, through the very final day May 6:

80+ days? Not this season by a longshot I suspect. Perhaps admin can add to the season recap thread James opened.

The April 15 daily operations closing looked much busier than May 6. Perhaps the later closing is more popular in the big years like 2011 (the one Liz and I attended).

Alta was OK with you flying the drone? Maybe only over the parking lot, but some shots look like they were from over the ski area.

Not permitted in the ski area - I only flew once terrain was closed and only because it was the last day. And no 80 days this season.
