The Snowbird Resort offers numerous opportunities for relaxing and enjoying the views from patios, terraces, and indoor lounges. Swimming pools, tennis courts, a spa, fishing pond, playground, alpine slide, Zip Rider, bungy trampoline and more facilities are available within the village. The Aerial Tram will take you up to the top of Hidden Peak at 3353 m (11,000 ft). From there you can hike, bike or ride the tram or Peruvian Quad ski lift back down to the village. A short car ride away, Salt Lake City offers many dining and shopping venues as well as sight seeing attractions, including the Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center and Temple Square. Exceptional sites for botanizing, birding, hiking, and wildlife viewing are within an hour's drive at Antelope Island, Big Cottonwood Canyon and Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.
If you wish to venture further before or after the meeting, Snowbird is near the geographic center of the scenic Southwest, and provides easy access to recreation sites throughout the Rocky Mountains. The Red Rock country of Moab and Arches National Park are within a half-day drive, and a little further south lies Monument Valley - famous for its impressive mesas and buttes. Spectacular fossil deposits can be found four hours east of Snowbird at Dinosaur National Monument, and archaeological sites of Anasazi dwellings can be explored within a day's drive south at Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado, and in Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona.
