how difficult to stay at snowbird Iron blossom lodge & ski alta

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
how difficult would it be to stay at snowbird in the Iron blossom lodge & ski alta with the wife & 7 & 13 year old boys, we would fly into slc & rent small suv, we are looking at april 10th thru the 17th, can you ski back to the iron blossom from alta with out having the alta bird pass, on some days we would ski snowbird but I think most days would be at alta, can anyone tell me anything about the iron blossom lodge, last season we stayed in slc & skied alta the last week in march, it seems like utah got a lot of snow after we left so is this generally a good time of year for a ski trip.
thanks bteddy

The Iron Blossom is a medium sized building with large condos just west of the Cliff Lodge. It's built of reinforced concrete and looks like Hitler's Atlantic wall, like the rest of Snowbird, being near Mt. Surperior's slide path. There are buses running the mile or so up to Alta, or you can drive your car up the access road, bypassing said slide path. It's a snap to stay at the bird and ski Alta-even before the AltaBird days.

Stay at Snowbird/ski Alta: I believe there is a shuttle bus that runs between Snowbird and Alta, but not sure schedule or route - try Snowbird info. Other than Mineral Basin, I believe the only ski return is a couple of gladed blacks off Wildcat. Snowbird should have the specifics.

If you only plan to ski in LCC, unless you want a car, you might try a shuttle from the airport - ask Snowbird for details.

Lodge itself is nice - although a bit of a walk to the lifts for mountain side lodging.

LCC seems to have the best chance for reasonable late spring conditions (season has started off good so far).

Good Luck!

People, FYI, it's Iron Blosam.

There are buses that run quite frequently up LCC.

I'd drive, it's just as easy.

And no, you can't ski back or forth without the dual ticket.

I stayed at the Blosam Apr. 4-12 last season. Skied Alta 2 days, Snowbird 3. Chest deep under the tram.
