From what I saw, I can see why this place is so well loved - in WINTER. But as for summer, I think you should find another place to stay.
#1 - The family pool is so small that once 2 or 3 LDS families show up, the pool is crowded. For Utah, I expect a much larger pool for families and the other resorts in Snowbird have larger pools.
#2 - The summer programming is stale, limited, and inefficiently run. Consider their events when you have spare time and have low expectations, and you'll enjoy them. Plan your days around them (like we did), and you will be disappointed.
#3 - It feels a bit cult-like, with many of the people you run into saying "this is our 32nd trip here". Yet, when we asked them what they enjoy doing here, they mostly mention skiing, which isn't applicable at this time.
#4 - Notice that while Snowbird is geographically close to Park City, you can't drive directly there - so you are really 45 minutes away. This was my error in not realizing when we were booking this, but worth pointing out as a quick Google search will make you think it is nearby. Snowbird is very close to South Salt Lake City suburbs.
Overall, I expected a resort experience and instead it felt like a week at summer camp in 1980. I can see why it's campy atmosphere is appealing to those who actually went there in the '80's, but for us new folks, it's just campy.
