Onno Wieringa has a passion for snow and for the soul of Alta. They have been his love and his career for 45 years.

He arrived at Alta Ski Area in 1972 and landed a job as ski patroller. That was his day job. At night, he was a bartender at Rustler Lodge. After 5 years on patrol Onno was promoted to snow safety director and served under Alta's second GM, Chic Morton. In 1988 Chic was ready to retire and called on Onno to take the reins. As Onno retires he leaves behind a legacy for Alta to emulate for years to come.
