We did an exchange from our Caribbean vacation resort -- Utah in late summer was not high on our list, but pickings were slim. Boy, were we surprised! The Cliff Lodge is a wonderful place -- close to Salt Lake City (less than an hour from the airport), with ready access to urban amenities and rural attractions. The Lodge had great facilities -- rides, activities, movie nights, gondola rides, hikes, etc -- that kept the three kids full entertained. A couple of the restaurants were first-rate -- the Mexican place had great staff and lovely food. The Steak Pit was a delight. The pool was large and there were enough hot tubs to meet the demand. The location is stellar -- great mountains and wonderful weather.

Even the best places have their downsides. The brunch was seriously over-priced and far from impressive (the setting in the Atrium is very attractive). Under the terms of our exchange, our room was only cleaned once during the week -- that is not quite enough for a long stay with active people.

In general, the restaurant service was extraordinarily good, the service personnel were enthusiastic and the place was really fun. We could only imagine what the place is like in the winter.

Room Tip: Consider coming during the week. The weekends were really busy; the week days, quiet and relaxing

We traded in from RCI for a one bedroom that sleeps 6. There was a king and two sleeper couches, all very comfy. The sleepers were in good condition without the usual bad springs. If I had any complaint it is that the kitchen is quite small with hardly any counter space and few cooking pans. However, housekeeping was quick to bring me a pan and a pancake griddle. We liked the hot tub on the balcony.

We did buy the activity passes for about $32 with a discount they gave us. We liked the alpine slide, bungee jumper, etc. The best was the peruvian chairlift which provided stunning views and was 15 min. each way. We liked it better than the tram.
We had pizza at the cafe and it was pretty good.
They have a lot of activities. Went on a guided hike with the family.
We would come back.

Being our first time to Utah we have enjoyed our visit to Snowbird. At first look when we arrived we were not sure what to expect when you see this concrete block...but don't lose faith the rooms are very comfortable and the views are fantastic. Plenty to do at the site or in the local area. Oktoberfest was this weekend and until mid October...and the local beer was great. I think if you are looking for a place to do as much or as little as you want this would be a good choice between the hiking, mountain biking or just sitting poolside. Be prepared for the 8 miles of curved (UP HILL) roads to get to the Resort.

This is one of those places that seems to bank on business because of their location and views without caring that their 'resort' looks like it dropped out of a 1970's time machine. They are on the mountain and there are amazing views from the room. That being said, the bathroom is completely dated - even down to the fluorescent ceiling lights. Someone decided adding a hardwired magnifying mirror to the wall would be a good idea - but it's not solidly attached to the wall and the hole in the drywall was cut too big. There is a window in the shower, presumably so you can see the view while you are in the shower, but it overlooks your bed first. This is quite strange when you have to use the toilet which is next to the shower. Thank goodness there is a curtain. ? There is visible mold in the shower. The 'design' in the room as well as the public areas are largely the bare concrete walls - with visible rebar holes. This may have been a 'hip' concept in one era, but now just feels unfinished or even prison-like.

Staff are friendly, valet seemed unorganized.

If you have a choice I'd recommend somewhere else.

We've stayed here twice, once in summer and once in winter, summer being considerably less expensive. Snowbird always had plenty of snow by December, usually by November, so this lodge is definitely a ski-in ski-out lodge, although it requires a little bit of skating on skis to actually get to the door. It's a beautiful lodge, probably our favorite at the resort. Reminds me of a giant luxury condo building with a side of all windows for a view of the ski mountain and Little Cottonwood canyon. But aesthetically built in the trees. Even at night you can see the moon and watch the snow cat's sweep the still slopes of the mountain. You can ski right in to this lodge, and it's right off the Snowbird Pavilion, where you catch the tram, have choices of restaurants, and if it is sunny there are concerts on the Pavilion. In the summer they often have rock climbing competitions on the edge of the Cliff Lodge as it has sheer exposed cement walls with great height. The rooms are very nice, and -the spa was amazing. I didn't go often but my wife absolutely loved it and chose to spend some of our budget there so she could really relax for days in a row. The restaurants we tried were good, and then we did a little dancing to a band that was playing at the restaurant at the top, while viewing the mountain the man. We stayed 5 days, would like to return for longer.
