Resort Rundown: Cliff Lodge at Snowbird

Snowbird at a glance
Snowbird is located in the heart of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon, one mile down canyon from Alta, another historic Utah ski resort. Snowbird features the Aerial Tram, which extends over 2,900 vertical feet and takes about 7 minutes to travel from bottom to top. The resort also boasts 10 chairlifts, comprised of four high-speed quads and six doubles. The uphill capacity is 17,400 skiers and snowboarders per hour. Snowbird’s 85 runs are blanketed by approximately 500 inches of the “greatest snow on Earth” year after year. Snowbird is also blessed by the longest ski and snowboard season in Utah, from mid-November through May, weather permitting. Snowbird is only 29 miles from Salt Lake International Airport, making same-day skiing and flying a reality.
