Jan 29 - Feb 5, 2022
The Snowbird trip had 34 people, 25 flying with us on Delta from Newark to Salt Lake City, 8 meeting us in Cliff Lodge at Snowbird, and 1 driving to Snowbird. Delta baggage fees were $30 for the first checked bag and $40 for the second checked bag each way. A ski package consists of skis & poles in a ski bag and a boot bag. About half of the group brought their own ski equipment.
we were unable start our trip on January 29 due to blizzard that dumped
more than foot of snow around the New York City area. As a result, our
original flight out of Newark NJ was canceled. We were able to rebook
our flight but not for the entire group to fly on the same day due to
flights being full on the days after the storm. Part of the group flew
on Sunday night and another on Monday morning. Transportation for all
participants from the Salt Lake City airport to the hotel was smooth and
on time, supplied by Canyon Transportation.
Cliff Lodge, slopeside at Snowbird, was a very good choice and we had
spectacular views of the mountain.
were large. Baggage handling was included. The Cliff Lodge provided a
welcome breakfast for our group on Tuesday. The Lodge had on-site ski
rental and repair shop and complimentary ski lockers. Participants had
direct access to the slopes. The skiing at Snowbird had a variety of
groomed and ungroomed runs. Off piste cover was good. The weather
presented some challenges as cold temperatures and flat light were
common. Mountain Hosts (tour guides) were available every morning at
9:30 AM or 10:30 AM, and highly valued by our members. Many of our
members spend several days at Alta ski resort, taking advantage of the
Ikon pass' joint access. Alta is a fantastic mountain with long runs and
convenient access from Snowbird. After a day on the mountain, our
members were able to relax at the outdoor pool or The Cliff Spa.
Saturday morning (6:00 AM) was the departure day for most of our members. It was imperative that each of our memberís bags had our Club's colorful luggage tags so that we could differentiate our bags from others. By 6:15 AM we were on our way to the airport. Luckily, our return direct flight to Newark was smooth and on time. We had no luggage issues.
