Jason and I went to Utah for a well deserved vacation this past Spring Break with his family. We stayed at The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird, a resort that is tucked away in the middle of the mountains. We try to go to Snowbird with Jason’s family at least once a year or whenever our schedules permit. This year we were lucky enough to stay for a week and we had the mountain literally all to ourselves. It had snowed the night of our arrival, continuing for the next few days, creating a white blanket of perfectly fresh snow.

We spent most of our trip in a constant rotation of snowboarding and defrosting inside with hot drinks and lounging around the lodge. It was absolutely stunning waking up to this view of the mountain outside our balcony. Jason and I would spend nights out in the hot tub on our balcony watching the “snow cats” groom the mountain for the next days run.

I packed lots of layers since it was going to be in the 30s and below the entire week we were in the mountain.

My skii attire consists of this Northface Jacket paired with these Burton Snowboarding pants. I typically like to wear a warm headband that covers my ears like a “ear gear headband” like this one from Northface (only $20!) I also never go skiing without my goggles, I’m not the type of person who can skii just wearing sunglasses. I am always afraid I’ll lose them. The goggles I am wearing are old but here is a similar pair.

Every view around the resort was beautiful and breathtaking! We felt like we were living in a real life snow globe. We got up early one morning and were the first on the tram that took us to the top of the mountain and this is the view we came across.

If you are ever planning a trip to go skiing in Utah, I highly encourage you to check out The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird. It’s beautifully placed right in the middle of the mountains. It truly is a skii in and out resort.
