The top image shows what is across the street behind Alta (people hike up to ski that -- it's pretty friggin impressive).
The bottom image is a view of Alf's High Rustler, which is what you see from the main parking lot. Must be a wide angle lens, as it doesn't look as steep as it really is:
That view scared the sh!t out of my wife when we first arrived on our March trip!
