The other day when I was at the top of lift 12, I noticed a couple of people standing at the top of the mountain across from me. This is outside the area of the ski resort, so they were enjoying some backcountry skiing. I'm not sure if they hiked up there from Alta Lakes, or perhaps flew by helicopter, known as heliskiing. If you click on the photo to see the larger version, you may be able to see the tiny people inside that notch above the wide snow patch.
The second photo is the un-zoomed version. I watched and waited, but I never got to see them drop down and start skiing. Maybe they were watching me watch them!
