Guest Rooms and Suites at Snowpine Lodge

The guest rooms and suites at Snowpine Lodge are tastefully decorated with furniture and decor that are harmonious with the wilderness setting. Rooms boast views of the Wasatch Mountains, are comfortable, and include high-end amenities. Accommodations can fit couples, families, or groups of individual travelers. I stayed in the Slope Side King with Balcony room and loved waking up to the snow-covered mountains every morning. My room was right off the public lounge area and next to the Stillwater Spa. The public seating included comfy couches, a fireplace, a picturesque balcony with fire pit, and seating near a water feature. The furniture made me feel like I was in someone’s living room, rather than a hotel

Stillwell Spa

You won’t want to miss out on a treatment at the Stillwell Spa. Relax after a hard day of skiing with a soak in the private Grotto, refresh with an oxygen treatment, pamper yourself with a beauty treatment at the salon, or stretch out by attending a yoga class. For the ultimate indulgence, spring for a body treatment, such as the Couples Retreat side-by-side massage that uses custom techniques and aromatherapy to meet both of your specific needs. During this treatment, the therapist will focus on stretching, massage, relaxation and rejuvenation. For skin renewal, try the Luxe and Beauty Signature Facial to restore the architecture of the face by utilizing potent nutrients in plant actives. Need to recover from an epic day on the slopes? Sign up for the High Altitude Recovery treatment or the Boots Off Massage. There is also a fitness facility with cardio and weights equipment.

Family Amenities

Teenagers (and adults!) will be thrilled with The Nest — a fully stocked game room with football, ping pong, pool table, arcade games, movies, and more. The games are free (no quarters needed!). Little ones can check out the Little Nest with a ball pit, hanging chairs, tee pee, game tables and more. There is also a year-round heated pool.

Airport Transportation

Snowpine Lodge is about an hour away from Salt Lake City Airport. It is easy to get to and from by booking a shuttle service. Once at the hotel, you won’t necessarily need transportation. The staff is happy to provide free rides to the nearby ticket office, the base of Alta Ski Resort or Snowbird Ski Area. Booking ahead is recommended.
