The Yurt Cafe to Open for Weekends and Holidays

This winter season a new cafe experience will be offered here at Snowbasin beginning Monday, December 26, 2011.

Enjoy a new mid-mountain experience at Snowbasin. The Yurt Cafe at the base of middle bowl triple will be open from 9 am – 3:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays during the winter season. The Yurt offers a variety of snacks, treats, and drinks for guests. You can indulge in mid-mountain snacks and get warm in the Yurt or take in the beautiful mountain view outside. Stop by while out on the mountain and enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience at Snowbasin.

High Temps and Rain End Summer Skiing/Snowboarding

After several days of high temperatures and significant rain Snowbasin will no longer continue its summer Skiing and Snowboarding.  We had two great weeks of Skiing/Snowboarding off the Middle Bowl lift however summer has finally arrived melting away the necessary snow amount to operate in the lower elevations.  Though we are closed for lift access skiing/snowboarding, Snowbasin will be hosting a Rail Jam on Sunday July 3rd at Earl’s base area for both skiers and snowboarders.  In addition, Snowbasin has many summer events and activities including mountain top dining, lower elevation mountain bike trails, and a 9-hole disc golf course currently open to the public. Snowbasin is looking forward to lift accessed Mountain Biking and Hiking in weeks to come.  Keep an eye on the blog for an official opening date.

**The Snowbasin Rail Jam on July 3rd is NOT cancelled**

Snowbasin to Re-Open for Weekend Skiing/Snowboarding Starting June 11th

Due to popular demand and a 100 inch base, for the 1st time ever Snowbasin Resort will be re-opening for weekends beginning June 11th and will remain open for as long as snow conditions allow.  Skiers and Riders will be able to upload and download on Needles Gondola to access multiple runs off intermediate terrain off of Middle Bowl Triple from 8 am to 2 pm.  Snowbasin’s General Manager said, “Maintenance scheduled for Needles Gondola has been recently completed which will allow access to the Middle Bowl Triple. Cool temperatures and a significant amount of late season snow has kept our base over 100 inches deep at mid mountain so it only seems natural for Snowbasin to re-open on weekends.” 

Season passes for the 2011/2012 winter season can be purchased starting this Saturday, giving those dedicated snow enthusiasts access to skiing and snowboarding earlier than ever.  Single day lift tickets are selling for $35.  Passes from the past 2010-2011 season will not be honored.  Barbeque food will be available. For any other information please call 801.620.1000.
