The best skis for Alta-Brighton's powder are Heads, Harts, Attenhofers, Dynaglas and the more flexible wood skis. Release bindings are an absolute must, with the Deep Powder shop at Alta and the House of Edelweiss at Brighton doing their heaviest trade in Cubcos and Millers. Quilted parkas are best to keep out the high-altitude cold. Also be sure to bring plenty of sweaters and long underwear. A last word: when you come, leave the chic after-ski outfit back home. Alta-Brighton is a place where people ski a lot, drink a little, and dress for warmth and comfort.
