If it’s Thanksgiving Day there are two things that are certain: Snowbasin Resort will be open for skiing & riding, and one of the greatest dinners in all of Utah is set to launch in Earl’s Lodge. Snowbasin Resort’s annual Thanksgiving dinner is becoming something of legend, and the best part is this year we went even more over-the-top. We’ve added more seafood, all natural grass fed NY Strip loin and we have called in air support on the dessert display. Yes, we have made something already great, event better. At Snowbasin Resort, providing great food and attentive service is in our DNA – and at this event, we get to show off what we’re all about in the hope of further inspiring ourselves by creating lifetime memories for our guests. Dinner begins at 10 am and ends at 5 pm. This event will surely sell out – so get those reservations in NOW by calling 801-620-1021.
We hope you will join us! And have a Happy Thanksgiving!
