The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird: Spa Day in Utah


December 9, 2020

The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird Utah is, for good reason, one of the most sought-after hotels in the mountains near Salt Lake City! It’s popularly known for the Cliff Spa on the rooftop of the 9th floor where you can enjoy a hot tub and enjoy the epic views of the Wasatch mountains! We decided to treat ourselves to a spa day at The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird so we grabbed some coffee, croissants, and breakfast burritos at “The Atrium” which is an adorable cafe/lounge in the Atrium of the Cliff Lodge!

Their Spa Snowbird facility is amazing – separate locker rooms for men and women that have hot tea and coffee for you to enjoy! They even have massage rooms if you want to boom a massage before relaxing at the Cliff Spa. Imagine taking in panoramic mountain views while taking a dip in the heated pool – it’s an experience you need to see for yourself if you visit Salt Lake City!
