Alta is one of my favorite ski slopes (sorry, no snowboarders allowed) located in Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon southeast of Salt Lake City.   I always liked the name but thought it was a shortened version of "altitude", which it certainly has with its peak of 10,550 feet above sea level. But the name, with help of Google Translate, means "high".  So simple...
