Spend Labor Day Weekend at Snowbasin Resort with Free Live Music and Chili Fest


Spend your Labor Day weekend listening to free live music, tasting chili, hiking, mountain biking and more at Snowbasin Resort.

Saturday, Sep 3, the Needles Gondola will run 10 a.m.–6 p.m. for hiking, mountain biking, and scenic lift rides. Needles Lodge will serve lunch from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.

On Sunday, Sep 4, be sure to hang out on the lawn at Earl’s Lodge and listen to free, live music at Blues, Brews & BBQ featuring Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Coyote Union, Penrose, Michelle Moonshine and The Battlefield. Music starts at noon and goes until 6:30 p.m. Enjoy delicious BBQ food while lounging on the lawn. Let the kids play on the playground, bungee jump and climbing wall. This family-friendly event is fun for all ages.

Monday, Sep 5, the 4th Annual No Name Chili Fest will take place 12:30 p,m.–4 p.m. The Chili Fest is a food drive event for the Utah Food Bank and the ‘Beat Hunger by a Mile’ campaign. The Snowbasin Resort Culinary Team will make batches of their own personal chili recipes which guests can sample, taste and then vote on. The winning chili will be served all year long at John Paul Lodge for the 2016-17 winter season. Chili tasting kits are $15 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 $13; with the $2 of each purchase still benefiting the Utah Food Bank. There will also be free live music from The Battlefield and Coyote Union as well as BBQ and beverages available for purchase. All ages are welcome.
