Why can't I update the Snowbasin App?
We stopped updating our app last winter. Our website is fully mobile friendly and you can find out the latest and greatest on the Conditions page. You can also follow us on social media for updates as well. If you liked to use the tracking aspect of the app there are many great free ones you can download like Snocru or Skitracks to just name a few.
Where can we have an alcoholic beverage?
We have many majestic lodges where alcoholic beverages can be purchased. Located inside of Earl's Lodge, the Cinnabar is a full bar with a full complement of spirits, wines and local beers. The Cinnabar is a dining licensed eatery, which means beverages can only be served to legal aged adults while they dine – open beverages cannot leave the restaurant space. At Earl’s Lodge, Needles Lodge, John Paul Lodge and Strawberry Café, we sell beer to guests on-premise. In all of our lodges, we do not allow any guest to possess or consume their own alcoholic beverages that were not purchased on-premise from a licensed service staff member.
It is unlawful to possess or consume alcohol on Snowbasin Resort property that wasn’t purchased through a licensed facility on premise. This boundary also includes public spaces around the Resort that are private property: all lodges, patio spaces, lifts and parking lot. To be served an alcoholic beverage at Snowbasin Resort, you must be of legal age (21 & over) and have a valid state issued ID, passport or Military ID as proof.
Where can we park?
We offer complimentary parking in five locations: Earl’s Lot, Maples Lot, Canyon Rim Lot, Wildcat Lot and Green Pond Lot. Transportation to the Base Area is provided from all locations at designated pick-up sites. Handicap parking is available in Earl’s Lot. Conditions permitting, guests may ski to vehicles in Earl’s Lot, Maples Lot and Wildcat Lot.
