Must be 21 and older with valid proof of age and identification to consume alcoholic beverages in accordance with UT state law.  Snowbasin Resort asks that all of our patrons consume beverages responsibly, and should we see the need, we will stop serving those with apparent signs of intoxication immediately.  We reserve the legal right to do this without notice.  Absolutely no outside food or beverage is ever allowed at Snowbasin Resort.  Consuming alcoholic beverage not purchased on premise is a violation of UT state law.  Dogs are allowed at Snowbasin Resort Music events, but they must be on a leash at all times, and stay on the grass areas – not the patio and certainly not within Snowbasin Resort Lodges unless a legal service animal designation is displayed.  Please clean up after your pet.

Food Drive Event for the Utah Food Bank and the ‘Beat Hunger by a Mile Campaign’

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, and then vote on.  The winning chili will be served all year long 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.

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.

After the live music concludes, the ballots will be counted, and the winning chili, and the chef that prepared it, will be announced.

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

What a great way to spend Labor Day in the high alpine, sampling great home-made chili, tasting great food, listening to free live music, and helping a great cause in Utah!

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.
