My wife and I stayed at the Cliff Lodge in March where I was attending a conference. Our check in was easy and convenient. We even got early check in after getting in SLC at around noon. We took Canyon transport directly up the the lodge. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We had the mountain view on the 5th floor which looked over pines to the backside of the lodge and a vista of the Wasatch. The double queen beds were very comfortable and housekeeping did a very nice job. The hotel is all concrete and the interior design is that of the unfinished concrete slabs, which can seem a little cold, but is actually quite functional and makes the walls look pretty cool. There are several choices for dining from the Aerie on the roof to the mexican place downstairs and a few more in the nearby Snowbird village. The cost of everything, sundries, water bottles, gift shop, snacks is however quite high as they have a monopoly. It is the only ski on ski off facility.
There are locked cabinets for each room to store skis/boots/equipment which is much nicer than lugging up to the room and much less messy. Boots and skis on you simply ski down the bunny slope to Snowbird center where the gondola and major lifts take you up the mountain! Coming back there's a small bunny lift that takes you back up to the hotel. Apres ski the several outdoor hottubs and and outdoor heated pool are a must!! The pool is even long enough for laps if you don't mind the warm water, but swimming outdoors surrounded by snow covered mountains is incredible! There's a pool upstairs in the spa for a daily entry rate, but frankly the one on level three is just as nice. If you want to use a nice gym, you'll have to pay for the spa, because the one included with your room is a few free weights and a few exercise bikes, but is clean. And frankly if you're going to be skiing full days at altitude you probably won't need additional exercise.
I recommend going to the Aerie from 5-6 and making your dinner a combination of the multiple delicious appetizers which are half-priced for happy hour!
Overall a comfortable if somewhat overpriced, but you are paying for the location/ski on and off at Snowbird!
