As Told By Past Guests

Snowbird Gets Better Every Year

Twelve years ago we met new friends at Snowbird; and ever since we make the annual August pilgrimage to enjoy the peace, the views, the great food and the photography sessions led by Mark Dauber.


Perfect Natural Retreat

Snowbird Mountain Lodge provided a perfect setting for a much needed mountain vacation. We loved everything about the property. The absolutely breathtaking setting, the special surprises to discover by walking the property and the comfortable accommodations. We normally choose a new destination to explore each year but both of us said that we would love to return to Snowbird each year. I can’t wait to return.”

Get Away From It All!

My husband and I had a wonderful 3 night stay and enjoyed all the amenities the lodge had to offer. It was so relaxing to sit out on the porch and soak up the beautiful scenery. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious. It was hard to decide the next tempting menu item to try each day
