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?
