By Megan Collins Tue Oct 30 2018 Basin Buzz, Snowbasin Report, Upcoming Events

Snowbasin Resort fired up the snow guns this morning October 30, 2018.  Snowbasin plans to open on Wednesday, November 21st, weather, and conditions permitting.  In excitement leading up to opening day, Snowbasin has partnered with Rossignol to do a countdown to opening day with 12 days of giveaways. Snowbasin will share all the contest information on their social media, so give them a follow @snowbasinresort.   


The opening weekend starts off strong with a Dining Discovery Whiskey Dinner on November 24th and kicks off the free après music scene with Nick Passey and Michelle Moonshine on Saturday and Sunday in the recently renovated Cinnabar. Now there are twice as many seats for people to enjoy the gastro-pub cuisine, full cocktail menu, and free music.

Snowbasin is thrilled to continue to grow the world of snow sports this winter. They were recently awarded the NSAA Conversion Cup for having the best introductory program in the country. The Learn and Earn program is a three-year conversion program that has a high success rate and is perfect for anyone wanting to get into snow sports. The first year program has just a few more spots left, where guests visit the resort prior to ski season to pick up their seasonal rental gear, then receive 3 all-day lessons and a season pass to use the rest of the year upon completion of their lessons.  Snowbasin has welcomed over 4,000 new skiers and snowboarders to the world of snow sports since the program started. To learn more visit www.snowbasin.com/learn.

If skiers and snowboarders are past the beginner stages, Snowbasin’s season passes are still on sale for a great price. Their passes offer the best bang for your buck with adult passes starting at just $629 and youth passes at $259. For the loyal snowsports enthusiast, the premier pass gets the guest five free days at Sun Valley, 50% off Mountain Collective resorts including Alta and Snowbird, plus so much more for only $829. Buy now to lock in the best rate at www.snowbasin.com or call 801-620-1000.

By Megan Collins Mon Sep 17 2018 Basin Buzz, Dining & Entertainment, Summer Concert Series, Employment, Snowbasin Report, Upcoming Events

Snowbasin Resort keeps the fun going well into the late fall at the resort. Snowbasin wraps up the normal summer season with the Annual Beer Fest on October 7 with free live music from the Young Dubliners.  In addition to the Beer Fest, other events include, a Job Fair to learn about the career opportunities at Snowbasin this winter on October 13, a dining discovery dinner on October 19 with a Clam Bake theme, and the popular, family-friendly Halloween Extravaganza on October 27.

Come view the changing leaves and spend the afternoon in the high alpine environment tasting local beers and listening to free live music at the annual Basin Beer Fest on Sunday, October 7th. Sample beers from local breweries including Kiitos, Shades of Pale, Red Rock, Epic, Park City, Roosters, Uinta, Bohemian, Talisman, Wasatch, Squatters, Moab, and RoHa. There will also be Bavarian-themed food to dine on and free music from Underground Cash, Angela Perley & The Howlin Moons, & The Young Dubliners. All ages welcome, but guests will need to be 21+ to enjoy the beer. Admission to the Beer Fest is free and 6 oz. samples of beer are available by purchasing tokens at just $2.50 each. For the beer connoisseurs, Snowbasin offers different packages that include a beer fest mug & a set amount of tokens. If a guest has a Blues, Brews & BBQ mug, they are welcome to bring them; just note that it will take (5) five tokens to fill the mug.

Ever wanted to work in the outdoor and tourism industry? The Snowbasin Job Fair on October 13 is a great place to learn about the variety of opportunities Snowbasin offers. All employees receive a free season pass, discounts on food, retail and more. With so many departments it takes to run a ski resort, there is bound to be a job for everyone with part-time and full-time opportunities including jobs at a desk, outdoor, in the rental shop, in culinary, and more. All hiring managers will be on site to meet potential employees and discuss their jobs available for this upcoming season. The job fair takes place in Earl’s Lodge and runs from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. If interested in joining their team and can’t make the job fair, check out the website at http://www.snowbasin.com/employement.


October has a dining event for adults looking for a night out ‘on the town’ and a dining event for the whole family. On Friday, October 19 Snowbasin’s chefs will be preparing a traditional New England Clambake with some Snowbasin flair. Snowbasin chefs will build a fire pit with local granite rock and Gambel oak wood; then bury all the ingredients in layers of seaweed, wet burlap and sand. Before the meal, all the items will be dug up, placed in piles and then served for your pleasure. While everyone dines there will be live music from the Roadside Ramblers.  Reservations are required for the Clam Bake. The Annual Halloween Bash is back at Earl’s Lodge on Saturday, October 27 from 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm. Bring all your ghouls and goblins for a scary good time with live DJ, family games, a costume contest, cash bar, and a festive all-you-can-eat buffet. Reservations are recommended for Halloween.  This is a fun family event you won’t want to miss. Make your reservations for one or both of these fun evenings by calling 801-620-1021.
