What about ski equipment?

If you have equipment you are happy with, bring it.  If you don’t have equipment you are happy with or want to try some new skiis for the weekend we can help you get set up with Snowbasin Rentals. Use the “Contact Us” tab and let us know what you need and we can get you pricing.


What is your refund policy?

Once your registration is complete NO REFUNDS will be issued. No exceptions. This policy remains in effect regardless of injury, family business, personal emergencies, road conditions, course changes, weather factors, or any similar circumstance or issue beyond our control.  We do allow guest substitutions. It is up to you and the other party to work out any financial compensation for your registration. If a substitution takes place please notify us immediately so things can be handled on our end (wildflowerretreatutah@gmail.com). We don’t enjoy enforcing the no refund policy, but we must. Preparing and executing a successful retreat takes all year to plan. We incur almost all of the hard costs for the retreat months before it takes place. When a guest registers we plan accordingly and pay for the costs associated with that guests attendance. This happens whether the guest attends the event or not. Thank you for understanding.


Why are there rates based on dual occupancy?

We offer two suites based on dual occupancy. The Casita Suite is a separate unit from the rest of the estate. You will have your own private entrance as well as personal access to the exterior patio, Queen size bed with an on suite bathroom as well as your own kitchen. The Powder Suite is the estates largest suite, you will enjoy a King size bed with a large on suite bathroom with freestanding tub, along with your own private balcony. These suites are meant for those who have a friend they are sharing the room with, the pricing is based on dual occupancy. Of course if you wish to have the Powder Suite or the Casita Suite to yourself you are more than welcome to enjoy it,  your registration would just require you pay the extra premium.

We love the Bash Bunk room! The Bash, named after one of our favorite runs at Snowbasin Ski Resort!!
