Snowbird / Alta - Feb 27th 2016


Only a few spots left, and if you haven't planned to ski earlier in this upcoming winter season - or you've got the ski bug and want to squeeze in one last ski adventure - this is ASC's last trip of the 2016 ski season. You don't want to miss the fun - we're going to end the ski season with a BANG!! 

Snowbird, Utah is located in the heart of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon.  Alta ski resort is one mile further down the canyon. Skiing Magazine has ranked Alta and Snowbird the Number One resort in the United States multiple times since the two joined at Sugarloaf Pass.  Outside Magazine also named Alta and Snowbird the number one ski resort in North America in 2008. Mineral Basin’s second high speed chairlift - Baldy Express has expanded the skiable terrain in Mineral Basin and also provides a connection with Alta. The two resorts to offer one lift ticket to ski a whopping 4700 acres of powder filled terrain.  In December 2005, the Peruvian Express Chairlift and tunnel opened allowing easier access to Mineral Basin through a 600 foot tunnel.  So now when you ski from Snowbird to Alta, you ski thru the only ski tunnel in North America! 

LODGING DETAILS

The Cliff Lodge is a sophisticated, alpine hotel surrounded by the majestic Wasatch Mountains.  As Snowbird’s flagship accommodation, this property combines ski-in/ski-out convenience and excellent service with a luxurious resort experience.  We will be staying in newly renovated (as of August 2015) lodge rooms. Within walking distance to Snowbird’s pedestrian village, the Cliff Lodge offers comfortable lodging, on site ski rental/repair, complimentary ski lockers, and resort-wide internet, room and concierge services.   In addition to the full service SPA, there is a heated outdoor pool and hot tub. YEA!! The Cliff Lodge features three restaurants and two lounges. For breakfast, a continental buffet breakfast is available at additional daily cost, individual breakfast items “to go” may be purchased at the Atrium Café in the Cliff Lodge, have a famous bagel or bowl at General Grits. Your trip leader will also splurge on some goodies from the Baked and Brewed in the Snowbird Center and have a little buffet in her room.
