The last few weekends for summer operations at Snowbasin Resort are full of fun activities to say goodbye to summer and get excited for the upcoming 2016-2017 ski season! We kick off the fun by teaming up with the Ogden Astrological Society to offer a Black Moon Viewing and Martian Party on Friday, September 30 at Needles Lodge from 6:45 pm - 10 pm. This event is FREE for all passholders. Non-passholders can ride the gondola for just $12 for adults and $6 for kids. There will be telescopes, delicious dining, live music, and prizes for the best Martian costume. If you missed the Full Moon earlier this month, you won't want to miss this. This will be the second new moon in the month of September, making the night sky perfect to spot the stars.
The following day we host our fourth annual Basin Beer Fest and are excited it will span two days this year, on Saturday, October 1 from 12:00 pm- 6:00 pm and Sunday, October 2 from 12:00 pm – 4:30pm! Pimps of Joytime, Candy’s River House, and Pinetop Inferno will play free music on Saturday, and Leftover Cuties, Dead Winter Carpenters and Hollering Pines will play free music on Sunday, while guests sample all of the best local craft beers. Basin Beer Fest will feature beers from Bohemian Brewery, Uinta Brewing, Squatters Beers, Wasatch Beers, Red Rock Brewery, Roosters Brewery, 10 Barrel Brewing Company, Payette Brewing Company, Laughing Dog, Melvin Brewing, Selkirk Abbey, Snake River Brewery, Talisman Brewing Company, and more. Admission to the Beer Fest is free and 6 oz. samples of beer are available by purchasing tokens for just $2.50 each. If you are planning to do some serious tastings, then you should look into our Beer Fest packages, which include a Beer Fest Mug and a set amount of tokens. In addition, buy the King of Beer package and bring your best costume garb on Sunday for a chance to win some great prizes and be named the King of Beer. Our menu includes Oktoberfest inspired cuisine such as bratwurst and sauerkraut, chicken schnitzel, knackwurst platter, sauerbraten fries, German Black Forest cake and more.
