Snowbird is located in the picturesque Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The Cliff Lodge offers ski-in/ski-out access, while condominiums located in The Lodge at Snowbird and The Inn are only 100 meters from the lifts and Cliff Lodge, where meetings are held. Each lodge has a heated pool and hot tub, and transportation around the resort is free upon request. Snowbird offers skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, as well as many restaurants, shops, boutiques and a 28,000 square-foot health and beauty spa (accessible for a fee). Cross-country ski within just one mile of Snowbird Resort and, for further exploration of the area, arrange a rental car when you check in.
  • Tip #1:

    For helpful tips on what to expect during your season of travel, check out Snowbird Utah

  • Tip #2:

    Reserve guest rooms early. Rooms in the same building as the conference (Cliff Lodge) sell out quickly. If you are staying at a lodge other than the Cliff Lodge, you will need to take a free shuttle or a short walk between buildings via a new pedestrian bridge.
