Recent Snowbird property reviews

  • Fantastic Rental Property

    "I can't recommend this rental highly enough if you want to ski or explore the resorts in Little or Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is close to all resorts (Solitude, Snowbird, Alta), minutes from the entrance to each Canyon and close to all amenities. You can choose to eat at local restaurants, restaurants in Salt Lake City, take a slightly longer drive to Park City (which we did on two occasions), or cook meals at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all needed cookware, and even a cappuccino machine. The house is clean and well cared for. The beds are firm and comfortable. The showers are also clean and have good water pressure. The caretaker, Kris, is friendly, helpful, and informative. Wireless internet is provided and even Netflix is available. It is a great place to stay for a family vacation."

  • Cozy and Complete

    "If you want a great mountain getaway close to Salt Lake City...this is it. While the cabin is "cozy" the space design is incredible. The owners have thought of everything you need for a fabulous retreat. The kitchen is very well stocked. The beds and linens are great. It's all there. And the owners are very responsive and caring. Wonderful retreat!"

  • Great Stay

    "We arrived to a very clean home with a welcome bottle of wine...great start! The house is well kept and true to the photos, if not better. Everyone in our group was pleased with the home and the proximity to the mountains was great. We will be back."

  • Great Experience!

    "I rented this one bedroom studio for a week ski vacation and overall was extremely happy with that decision. Fernando was very friendly, prompt, and helpful in answering my questions and even providing helpful suggestions I hadn't thought to ask about. When I arrived at the condo, everything was exactly as described, but the resort was even better than I anticipated. There was a lovely view from the balcony. There were several affordable and unexpectedly delicious restaurants to choose from. (Good red chile in Utah! Who would have guessed?) I loved that I could rent gear and buy lift tickets on the first floor and ski in/out of the building, avoiding the lines at Snowbird Center. And the spa membership that is included with the rental made me feel decadently spoiled. I skied every day and relaxed every evening in the roof top heated pool and hot tub. The staff at Cliff Club/Lodge are all very friendly and helpful as well. The only negative thing I can report is that I was unfortunate to have a bickering family in the unit next door, but neither Fernando nor the resort could have predicted or controlled that, and besides, I spent most of my time on the slopes, at the spa or in the restaurants so it hardly mattered. The mountains are phenomenally beautiful. This was an amazing vacation and I hope to be able to repeat it in the future. Given the opportunity, I would definitely rent this condo again."

Snowbird Travel Tips

What Snowbird Vacation Rentals Have to Offer

Snowbird is a delightful town in the Little Cottonwood Canyon, deep in the Wasatch National Forest. It is just south of Salt Lake City at a height of 8,600 feet and one mile from the town of Alta. Its elevation gives it 500 inches of snowfall each year, making it a mecca for snow sports enthusiasts. It was named the number one ski resort in North America in 2008 by Outside Magazine, with 2,500 acres for skiing, a vertical drop of 3,240 feet and 85 ski runs spread evenly between beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

Getting to Your Snowbird Utah Vacation Rentals

Snowbird is known as the most accessible world-renowned four-season mountain resort in North America. It is just 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport which has over 600 daily direct flights to other major cities. A convenient shuttle bus and rental cars are available to transport visitors the 45-minute drive to Snowbird. Within a couple of hours of landing, visitors can be dropping their luggage in their Snowbird condo and heading out to the ski slopes.

Great Places to Visit from Snowbird Vacation Houses

At the top of the Cottonwood Canyon is the town of Alta, founded in 1865 by house miners of the rich silver mines in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Most of the buildings were destroyed by a fire in 1878, followed by an avalanche in 1885, and by the 1930s, it had just one near-bankrupt resident, George Watson. Discover his story and other interesting sights with a visit to the historic town and the Alta Memorial Grove. The Albion Basin offers excellent wildlife sightings with moose, birds, coyotes, foxes and lemurs living in the scenic area. It is also known to have more than 300 species of wildflowers which bloom in the warmer months.

The Best Time to Visit Snowbird Condos

Snowbird and the Alta ski region have average low temperatures below freezing from November through February. From June to September, warmer temperatures from 60 to 72 F (15 to 22 C) can be enjoyed with very little rainfall, making this a beautiful place for outdoor pursuits in all seasons.

How Utah Vacation Rentals Compare to Hotels

For those visiting Snowbird in the winter skiing season, a vacation rental is the ideal place to stay. With plenty of space to dry and store equipment, a washer-dryer in the unit, fully equipped kitchen, cozy fireplace and comfortable beds, it is the best way to enjoy your stay in Snowbird. A vacation home offers a quiet retreat after an action-packed day of activities. During the summer, families enjoy the space and privacy which vacation rentals afford. They make a wise money-saving choice for families and groups at any time of year.

Snowbird Vacation Rentals Offer Plenty of Things to Do for the Entire Family

Snowbird averages 500 inches of low density "dry" powder snow, making it ideal for skiing and snowboarding. It has the longest ski season in Utah, running from mid-November through mid-May

The town of Snowbird has four bars for après ski entertainment and 15 restaurants serving everything from burgers to fine dining. The Cliff Spa has a staff of 40 trained therapists, beauticians and masseurs for the ultimate in relaxation and pampering. In the summer, Snowbird hosts a number of music festivals, concerts and a Brewfest in mid-June.

Winter activities include backcountry tours, night skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, aerial tram rides and the latest adrenaline sport -- heli-skiing. In the summer, enjoy the 1,300-foot alpine slide down Chickadee Run, walk the Ropes Course with a safety harness, ride the ZipRider or pan for gemstones at the Wasatch Mining Company. Climbing, hill walking, horseback tours, ATV riding, fly fishing and rafting are all on offer at this wonderful action-packed family destination.
