There is no better way to spend your Labor Day than in the high alpine, sampling great home-made chili, listening to free live music, and helping a great cause in Utah! The Snowbasin Resort Culinary team, led by Executive Chef Eric Byrd and Executive Sous Chef Scott Sniggs, will make batches of their own personal chilis to have out for the guests of the event to sample, taste then vote on.  The winning chili will be served at Needles Lodge for the 2014.15 season.  Yes you, our guests, get to be a part of the process of selecting next season’s chili at Needle’s Lodge.  So please, come up and join us in this very important culinary process that we want to share with our guests.

This all ages event begins at 12:30 pm with the final ballots to be counted at 4:30 pm and the winner to be announced.  To get your chili tasting kit, it will cost you $14 per person with $2 of every purchase going directly to the Utah Food Bank.  If you bring non-perishable food items to help fill our ‘Beat Hunger Gondola’ that will be set-up in the middle of the plaza, your tasting kit will be automatically reduced to $12; with the $2 of each purchase still going to the UT Food Bank.

The ‘Beat Hunger Gondola’ full of non-perishable food items and the final amount of the cash donation will be presented in downtown Salt Lake City to the UT Food Bank during their annual food drive event.

**Absolutely no outside food or beverage is ever allowed at Snowbasin Resort.  In accordance with UT state law, absolutely no outside alcohol can be consumed on premise.  No reservations needed, this is a very casual first come first serve event and will no doubt be busy.  In order to enjoy the BBQ, you must pre-purchase your bracelet at the registers inside Earl’s Lodge.  Price DOES NOT include any alcoholic beverage of any kind.  Must be 21 to consume alcoholic beverage with official proof of age.  Only the Dad’s receive a complimentary lift ride – but still must redeem the ticket at the window in order to ride lift.  All others must still purchase their tickets.  Pets are allowed at Snowbasin Resort but only on the grass areas – never inside the Lodges without an official service pet designation.   Chairs are allowed on the grass as well as tents.  Tents must be secure and must be set up along the back of the music venue – never in front.
