What's Special About The Cliff:

Utah is known for light, fluffy powder. Even here, Snowbird stands out, with an average of 500 inches of annual snowfall. Snowbird's flagship resort, The Cliff, is a steel-and-concrete bunker of a resort, built to withstand avalanches. Still, it seems every space has a huge window with a snow-draped view. Everything you need - when you're not actually skiing - is within one building. So you can ditch the snow pants, heavy jacket and gloves and head to the restaurants, shopping and the spa.
