I think you’re pretty safe calling these long-billed just looking at the current reports (or lack there of) of short-billed dowitchers in much of the interior US and that short-billeds are rather uncommon around Salt Lake City in general

Also, the Peterson Field Guide says Long-billed show more "rounded" bodies when feeding, such as visible in your photos.

Yes, the "swallowed-a-grapefruit" look on feeding LBDOs is quite a useful distinction.
