To finish the night we will have fireworks at 6:45 pm. All viewing festivities are FREE.
Reservations will not be taken for this festive and very popular event as it is on a first come first serve basis. Please know and understand that this is not a ‘sit-down full service event’ and it is typically very busy and crowded – especially 5:00 or later. The lodge can get full and a lot of seats will get taken quickly – so get up early and enjoy the lodge before the outside festivities begin. For more information please call 801-620-1000.
*Images with Santa will be available for free online at FaceshotsPhotography.com
**No reservations, and no ‘claiming seats’ ahead of time.
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!

There will be a costume contest for adults and kids, a bobbing for apples contest, a ‘Haunted’ photo booth and of course the incredible food. This year, we have turned up the heat come up with a menu where many of the items will be prepared in the dining room fresh to order from chef action stations. This alone will be worth the trip.
Doors open at 5:30 pm food begins at 6:30 and goes until 8:30 and the dancing will go until…?? You guys decide. Full bar will be available from the Cinnabar. $29 for adults (12 and over) $18 for Youth (ages 5-11) and Kids 5 and under are FREE.
