Filmed at Alta Ski Area in 1945, Margie of the Wasatch was a promotional video for the burgeoning Utah ski industry. The film tells the story of a female tourist who draws the attention of the Alf Engen Ski School instructors.
Alta Ski Area teamed up with Sweetgrass Productions to highlight the classic Alta scenery, terrain, and, of course, powder snow that we are still known for 75-plus years later. Enjoy the new take on this classic ski film set to the music of Alta-locals Pixie and the Partygrass Boys.
