Snowbird Cliff Lodge Condo 3 nts.$285 total

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
This is for real! I can offer 3 nights in the luxury slopeside Cliff Lodge at Snowbird for only $285 total. The dates would be: check in on Tuesday, Dec. 7th. Check out Friday, Dec. 10th. The accomodations consist of a Studio Condo with 1 king bed, 1 sleep sofa, big fully appointed bath, fridge, microwave, sink, color TV, table and chairs, private entrance and a private balcony. I stayed in one of these last year and it was exquisite. This unit goes for $250 per night through central reservations! How can I do this? I've already reserved 3 side by side lock-out units for a full week. I have some friends leaving after only 4 nights so the remaining 3 nights are available in one of the self contained studios. This place is considered the flagship lodging property at Snowbird. For those of you not familiar with how nice of a place this is, check out www.Snowbird.com for the ammenities that are available in house there. The snow is huge there! Contact me at sundog2000@earthlink.net for the particulars of how we can arrange this for you. JC

So, what's your point?

Dear Xdog.
Does that mean your interested in the 3 nights? (Yah, I didn't think so!) Your $99 per nite was double occupancy in a standard hotel room plus taxes and room surcharge. Because you had no cooking facilities, you ate every meal out. The benefit of what I'm offering should be obvious. You should not post replys to offers that don't present all the facts and mislead other skiers. I've stayed at The Cliff many times and know the value of what I have. Thanks for your insight.

It's Xdog1 to you pal.

And it's you who are misled. The room was $99 for 1 person, yet included 2 lift tix, one of which I sold each day to recoup $40 of my nightly cost.

Early season, lift inclusive packages are available until Dec. 18.

The only things my unit didn't have were the balcony and microwave. Whoop-de-friggin-doo.

You should not poke your head in with 12 posts trying to hawk your great "deal", and not expect others in the know to present alternatives.

Good luck.

Apples and Oranges

Dear xdog,
After reviewing the reiteration of your rant : , I called the Snowbird Reservation Line at 1-800-640-2002 to find out directly from the source what in fact is available at the Cliff Lodge. I spoke with "Rick" at ext. # 4930. I asked for the least expensive Lodging and Lift package available at the Cliff Lodge. I was offered an Early Bird Special (3 night minimum) which is good untill December 20th. The cost for a single occupancy, standard bedroom, this coming Fri. Sat. & Sun. was $701 total (incl. taxes and room surcharges) for the 3 nights. That price includes 3 tram tickets (not six). Double occupancy in the same room, with 6 lift tickets included, will set you back $821.48 (they give you the extra 3 lift tickets for an additional $40 each). With that information in mind, the room alone will cost $581 or $193.66 per night.
Then (considering that you were comparing apples to oranges), I asked him specifically what a Studio Room would cost for 3 nights at the Cliff Lodge, Dec. 7-10th. Brace yourself. Those accomodations will set you back $756.39 total, or $252.13 per night (incl. taxes and room surcharges). They'll include 3 lift tickets for a total of $892.89 (about $45 per day).

Let's do the math...
3 nights in a Cliff Studio for $756.39
- $285.00 (what I'm asking) equals a savings of: $471.39!

Feel free to contact "Rick" at 1-800-640-2002, ext.# 4930 to confirm any of this. Just so we understand each other, Are you suggesting that you stayed at the Cliff Lodge for $99 (including 2 lift tickets) per night? The reservationist actually laughed at me when I mentioned that someone had communicated that they'd gotten such a deal. With the lift tickets valued at $40 a piece ( x 2 = $80 total), you were in essence paying $19.00 a night to stay at the Cliff? Excuse me for being so bold, but you can't stay in a broom closet for that. Go figure!

Oh, and by the way... The YANKEES SUCK!!!
But don't take it personally.

You call that a rant? Huh. That was like 6 or 7 sentences which merely responded to your initial retort.

Anyway, I'm not gonna spend much time on this, but here's the deal. I absolutely got the deal I described. If I felt it important to prove it to you, I'd scan my checkout bill and post it here. But I don't. I stayed 4 nights total at Snowbird. 1st nite in the Lodge (Cliff was full due to a conference about "The 8th Habit of Highly Effective People"). $99, and Fridays lift included (2 tix, one of which I sold at the Tram base.)

Checked out Fri. am, skied all day, then checked into Cliff at 4 pm the same day. Fri. and Sat. nites billed @ $99 each, with voucher for two 2 day lift passes. Sun. was $85 with no lifts because mountain was closed Mon. Sold the extra 2 day pass to a dude who drove over from Jackson for the weekend.

I have names and extensions too, and I'm sorry you got laughed at. I bet that happens to you a lot.

So again, good luck hawking your great "deal", and Let's Go.... (wait, does Florida have a baseball team?) ...ahhhh, whoever.

It's typical.

Yah, I know. Being a Red Sox fan : originally from Boston, enables me to do that without even trying. (watch what happens now that xdog knows this).
post #11 of 20
OK, now I'm thinking that you two _have_ to share the condo. Buy a case of beer, a 1/5 of JD and sort the whole thing out. Let us all know how it works out.
post #12 of 20
Has anyone noticed the striking similarity of their names? They’re both “dogs” only that one’s pure breed and the other… oh well, it’s a “Red Sucks” fan

I guess we can say that we have a real "dog" fight here.

a) I'm not pissed off in the least. This is just a "spirited discussion".

b) Believe it or not, I can't stand the Yanks, or MLB for that matter. Buncha overpaid crybabies. I was as happy as most M*******s were to see the curse broken.

c) A fifth of JD wouldn't be nearly enough. Especially with those wack 3.2 beer chasers. How bout a steel cage match instead?

Maybe you two should ride the tram to the top and bomb to the bottom! First one down wins!!

Now I have to weigh this option into my decision as to where to ski over Thanksgiving. If I could get a $99 a night Single Occupancy Room at the Cliff, that included a lift ticket, I'd pay for a ticket to SLC and go enjoy the superior snow conditions at Snowbird, versus going to Denver on a frequent flyer ticket I havemy frequent flyer US Air ticket won't get me to SLC only Denver).

Utah eliminates the need for a rental car or expensive shuttle to Vail, Sleeping and skiing for $100 a day makes buying the airline ticket to Utah a no brainer and a less expensive ski package contingent on this Single Occupancy $99 a day stay and ski deal being available.

XDog1 , how can I reserve the deal at the Cliff Lodge you got over Nov. 25- 28???
post #16 of 20
I find it highly unlikely that the price I got would be available during a holiday period.

Sorry!

Cliff Lodge: $19 per night

Greetings Roundturn.
I emailed Snowbird reservations last night and inquired what the least expensive; single occupancy, 3 day minimum, Lodging and Lift package, would be at the Cliff Lodge or ANY of the lodging properties at Snowbird. I only asked for 1 lift ticket per day (as opposed to the 2 that xdog claimed he recieved per day). Xdog's probably correct in assuming that the Holiday period will be more costly. This is what they wrote back:

Thank you for inquiring with Snowbird Ski Resort. The lowest rate for single occupancy would be $158 per night including lodging and lift tickets. You can stay at the Inn this week only for $59 per night, no lift tickets included. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Cynthia Pergrossi

So, It's $118 per nite at the Cliff, plus $40 for a discounted lift ticket.
Maybe it would help if I'd asked for the Preferred Mystery Xdog Double Secret Reserved Rate. . Xdog, I don't know what act of humiliation you had to subject yourself to get that deal, but apparently it's not available to the rest of the free world. :
post #18 of 20
Thank you for the confirmation. I didn't intend on stirring the Cliff Lodge controversy any further. It does however confirm to me that Vail will be cheaper when I bunk down in West Vail and purchase my ticket with my Colorado Card discount. Issue with the Vail scenario is the amount of skiing that maybe open that early versus Snowbird. Colorado needs some double diget snow storms to roll through.

Can't beat this week's rate at the Cliff Lodge at $59 a night as a single. Many years ago I bought Snowbird lift tickets at Smith's supermarket at a decent discount. Maybe you could ski and stay this week for about $100 a day. I subscribe to this simple ski vacation philosophy, anybody can spend a lot of money on a ski vacation, the challenge and personal satisfaction of doing it on the cheap helps support the next trip.Thanks for the info.

You're obsessing again, find the Paxil.

I'm assuming that you're so agitated by the deal I got because you're an owner at the Cliff. Perhaps I'm wrong, but that's how it seems. You probably feel like you've invested a lot of $$$, and you don't like to see other folks getting a smoking deal.

The only act of humiliation I had to endure was asking nicely for a good rate for a single traveler. Many other folks were staying in the cliff on the $59 per room, per nite plan, no lifts included. So there were lots of deals to be had, sorry you didn't get in on any.

Hey Xdog1,

I'm not agitated, really. I've just learned to appreciate the pure entertainment value of our little discourse . I really wish that I was an owner. That would be sweet. Much like yourself in selling your extra ticket to off set some of your cost, I'm trying to turn an empty studio into some extra cash, that's all. You might just say I'm an oppurtunistic Capitalist : . That's not a bad thing! I do understand that person to person deals can be arranged, that can't officially be acknowleged. There's a lot that can be said for being at the right place at the right time with the right attitude. I did actually get a great deal. From what I know of the rates at the Cliff, I honestly believe that my offering a Studio Condo at the Cliff for $95 a night is a pretty sweet deal also. The room sleeps four, so a few friends could get together and stay there REALLY cheap. The Cliff used to have a couple of four bed dorm rooms on the bottom floor that you could stay in for like $85 pp a night. I learned that they did away with those recently .
Thanks for the offer of the Paxil, but the anticipation of hitting the slopes at that beautiful place in just three more weeks already has my mood totally enhanced. I'm sure you understand. The love of the sport is the one thing that unify's us, regardless of what political, spiritual or socio-economic differences might exist. It's ALL good, when your in the mountains. :
