First Annual Burger Challenge March 30th

Like Burgers and fries?  Like to ski/ride? Then we have the perfect event “stacked” up for you!  For a $40 entry fee, you will get to experience the thrills of the mountain, while enjoying the delectable bites of Snowbasin Resort’s Signature Burgers in all three of our majestic lodges.

Here’s the deal:

You start at the base of Needles Gondola by the Moose at 11am and take the Gondola up to Needles Lodge.  Upon entry, you will be treated to the incredible Needles ‘Bomber’ Burger which is a half-pound of all natural grass fed beef from Idaho flat grilled and topped with 1000 island dressing, sauerkraut, 6oz of grilled corned beef, Swiss cheese, on a toasted brioche bun with pickles (yes you have to eat the pickles).

As soon as you are done – which is a totally clean plate – you grab your gear and ski or ride down to the base where you will have to take the John Paul Express Quad to your next Culinary Adventure.  At John Paul Lodge, the Signature Burger, the JP ‘Mondo’ Burger, will be ready for the next round of food inhaling.  The John Paul Burger is a half-pound of flat grilled all natural grass fed beef topped with marinara, a 1/3 pound grilled Italian Sausage, and provolone cheese on a toasted brioche bun.  If you can choke down the JP Mondo Burger, then your last stop awaits at Earl’s Lodge.

At Earl’s Lodge you will be greeted like warriors returning from battle from our Culinary Team.  The final monumental food-gasm will be the mighty Basin Burger from Earl’s Grill which is a half-pound of all natural grass fed beef flame grilled topped with 4 slices of bacon, 1/3 pound of house smoked pulled pork, BBQ sauce, crispy Fried onions on a toasted brioche bun.  Just to sweeten the pot, you will have to eat a full portion of fries along with 2 Kobe Beef Sliders from the Cinnabar – in one seating.  If you finish first, you claim the prize and bragging rights for life.  Are you ready for the challenge?

Snowbasin Resort’s Annual Halloween Party Nov 1st

As the leaves fall, the air gets a little cooler and the days get shorter we are all quickly reminded that winter is right around the corner.  However, before the snow falls and the lifts begin to turn we are hosting one last special Halloween event.  This year at Earl’s Lodge we are going to go all out and decorate in a ‘Spooktacular’ fashion along with games and activities for the kiddos.  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.

**Price does not include beverage, UT sales tax, and gratuity.
