First Annual Pray for Snow Party Oct 6th

Come enjoy our last day of the summer & fall season Sunday Octobers 6th from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.  As the colorful autumn leaves change color & fall to the ground, only one thing is on the minds of powder junkies:  SNOW!!! Remember what a Hot Toddy tasted like?  How about that famous Snowbasin Resort Hot Cocoa?  Take a gondola ride up to Needles and scout out that favorite line before the snow falls, and get reacquainted with your favorite stash before it’s packed with our famous ‘Greatest Snow on Earth’.  Because as we all know, it’s coming; and coming with a vengeance for 2013/2014 winter season.

In great anticipation for the return of Old Man Winter, c’mon up and purchase your season pass before the preseason sale ends.  If you have already purchased your pass come get your picture taken and pass printed.  And then say goodbye to near perfect long summer and fall days, Blues, Brews & BBQ Concerts, bike trails, running trails, guided hikes and summer dining events.  Make way for the coming winter in all of its glory:  Fresh lines, near perfect corduroy, crisp and cold air, après ski, and great times.

Food specials from the BBQ will be available along with a beer garden for your consumption pleasure.

Live Music Entertainment on Earl’s Patio with Celtic rock band Swagger giving you the best of Irish rock that will turn up a kilt or two for sure!

*Must be 21 and over with Valid State ID to consume alcoholic beverages.  No outside alcohol or outside food.  Pets only allowed on lawn and must have a leash.

2nd Annual Adaptive Sports Winter Carnival

Come to Snowbasin on Saturday March 19th for the 2nd annual Snowbasin Adaptive Foundation Carnival and Demo Day.  If you were here for the Carnival last year, you know how much fun was had by all.  This year the Foundation is committed to raising $5000 to purchase a mono-ski.  We will have fun booths for the kids, prize giveaways, hot dogs and cotton candy, music and more.

We are also very fortunate to have the generous support of many of our local ski industry partners who are sponsoring a Demo Day.  For a $10 donation you will be able demo equipment from at least 8 different companies.  All of the proceeds from the Carnival and Demo will benefit the Snowbasin Adaptive Sports Educational Foundation to help people with disabilities have an on snow experience.

More Info on the Adaptive Program:

Have you seen the bi-ski on the hill and wondered about our adaptive program?  The Snowbasin Adaptive Sports Educational Foundation was started in 2009 to provide an on snow experience for people of all ages with disabilities.  Since 2009 we have grown our program, purchased specialized equipment, and provided lessons and scholarships to over 150 people in Northern Utah.

The Foundation is a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit.  We are supported by, but separate from Snowbasin Corporation.  If you know someone who might be interested in Adaptive lessons, please call our Snowsports department at 801-620-1015, or visit the website www.snowbasinadaptive.org

Look for our Adaptive Instructors and students on the hill, you always see them smiling!
