Best spring skiing in North America

Cliff Lodge always delivers. Best chance to get great snow late in the season, ski-in/out location, variety of restaurants roof-top pool and spa and beautiful Alta only two miles up the road. Bell service shuttle is always available upon request to go to Alta or to nearby off the mountain restaurant.

Great place for a ski vacation

You can't beat the location! Ski in and ski out. Staff was extremely friendly. The hotel itself is a bit dated in terms of decor and amenities from a room and facility standpoint. You can rent skis and buy lift tickets within the property and the onsite ski lockers are very convenient. While the restaurants are nice, you will run out of variety if you are staying for more than 3 nights.

Average hotel

This is definitely a hotel for the locals. Rooms were good. Beds were cozy. Hotel needs some updating though. Wonderful to be right on the mountain. View are great from the room. Staff is very courteous and willing to make your stay comfortable. Don't expect any "fancies". Come here to get a decent room, get some good skiing in, and eat a good meal. Expect to pay the price of on the mountain accommodations though.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Can find a lot of good deals (room rates/packages/skiing rentals and tickets, etc.), but be sure to look for them in advance. We ended up paying full price and it got ridiculously expensive.

Snowbird late in seanson

This resort was very good and the time of the season great to get good access to the lifts. This late meant that a few of the restaurants weren't open. The Spa was great but expensive. Over $200 for a massage is getting up there, particularly when you are asked to tip prior the treatment being given!

family trip

We love snowbird because of the easy access to chickadee especially with little kids. We love the sushi bar, it is always a bonus for us as our kids are old enough to watch a movie and get a pizza while we have a date upstairs at the sushi bar. Snowbird snowboarding is the best, we have never been disappointed! It is worth the extra money to stay if you have young kids because they can learn right outside the doors. the outdoor pool and hot tubs are a blast too!

Fun In the Snow

Our overall experience at Cliff Lodge was good. Things were very conveniently located and the ski in ski out was a super plus. The rooms are average hotel rooms. Only negative was the view from the room was more of a view of the parking garage than of the mountain. So I would say save your money and stay on the cheaper side! As the more expensive mountain side view room is some mountains, but mostly parking garage view. Overall our family enjoyed and will probably return again next year or the year after. Thanks for the great family time at Snowbird in the snow in Utah.
