Even though the snow continues to pile up (310 inches as of Feb. 1) here at Snowbird Resort in Utah, we’re already preparing for your visit this summer!
For those who aren’t familiar, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is a legendary year-round mountain destination, offering award-winning ski terrain, a variety of summer activities, elite meeting facilities, 882 lodging rooms and 15 restaurants and lounges, all within 30 minutes of downtown Salt Lake City.
July mountain temperatures tend to peak at about 80 degrees, providing plenty of sunshine for the wide variety of wildflowers, birds and wildlife which inhabit Little Cottonwood Canyon. Snowbird offers plenty of options for visitors to take advantage of the pleasant climate. More than 30 miles of official hiking, biking and mountain scootering trails can be accessed from the legendary Snowbird Aerial Tram which transports travelers up to the 11,000-foot Hidden Peak, offering stunning views of the surrounding Wasatch Mountains and Salt Lake Valley.
The base of Snowbird offers activities for the young and old, from the excitement of the Alpine Slide and ZipRider to a climbing wall, ropes course and more. Dining options range from sandwiches and groceries (including beer and liquor) at General Gritts to progressive New American cuisine of the Aerie Restaurant, located on the tenth floor of the Cliff Lodge. The Cliff also boasts the newly remodeled Cliff Spa, offering more than 30 treatments and salon services as well as a yoga studio, full fitness center, rooftop pool and hot tub with unparalleled mountain views.
In addition to all that Snowbird has to offer, we’re also conveniently located only minutes away from neighboring Alta, 30 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City and 45 minutes from Park City. We hope you’ll attend the 2011 OWAA Conference and experience all that Snowbird and Utah have to offer. For more info about Snowbird, visit http://www.snowbird.com.♦
