Snowbasin’s Burger Bar: Something for Everyone

Kids enjoying food at Snowbasin resort

Those dog-days-of-summer… If you are a parent with school age kids, then sure, the summer might feel over. School is starting and life is becoming unmeasurable busy again.

But summer isn’t over! In fact, the weather is perfect in the mountains (you won’t melt sitting in the afternoon sun anymore) and Snowbasin still has some great weekends for Brews, Blues and BBQs lined up for the month of September.

So before summer slips through our fingers for good, we headed up to Snowbasin to grab some BBQ and play in the sun. We brought the mountain bikes, took to the trails and frolicked at the playground before lunch.

After the kids had worked up an appetite, we went in search of food. Snowbasin has a good thing going on when it comes to food. And not just for adults. But for kids too. We ordered a smattering of food including a “plain” cheeseburger (per request of the kids), all beef hot dog, and the pulled pork BBQ sandwich. There really is something for everyone, my kids loved it all.

And thank you Snowbasin for always being generous with the french fries!

But the biggest hit was the snow cones. :) “Mom, it is like ice cream only made out of snow!” And we all love the taste of snow at the end of a hot summer… Bring on Labor Day Weekend!
