Snowbasin Resort is revamping their summer dining with the new Dining Discovery: Explore your Cravings program. The Dining Discovery program will encompass many aspects of dining at Snowbasin Resort and include Culinary Expeditions, Cooking and Eating Classes, Mountain Top Brunches, Burger Spa and Snowbasin Spirit Series.
The Dining Discovery: Culinary Expedition dinners will replace the weekly Saturday night dining at Needles Lodge, with several events throughout the summer, each with its own theme. These top-of-the-gondola dinners will be an experience complete with live music and atmosphere to give a taste of the culture that encompasses the designated cuisine.
The planned themes include Mediterranean on July 5, Caribbean on Aug. 2, traditional Indian and curry on Aug. 30, and farm to table dining on Sept. 27.
The Dining Discovery: Culinary Expedition dinners are $70 per person. They are held at Needles Lodge and include a ride up the gondola and live entertainment.
Dining Discovery: Cooking and Eating classes will include a Shellfish Cooking Class, where guests can learn about purchasing, preparing, cooking and eating these wonderful items from the sea. The cooking class will be just $45 on July 18 and held at Earl’s Lodge.
A Wine Maker’s Dinner exploring the art of wine and food pairing will also be held on July 25. In addition, Dining Discovery: Snowbasin Spirit Series will include special dinners themed around cocktails and spirits.
Snowbasin Resort has also reinvented their Mountain Top Brunch, turning it into a Dining Discovery experience and making it the premier Sunday morning brunch spot for miles around. “The brunch is going to be a culinary celebration of contemporary, trendy, and classical ingredients and techniques that will delight both the pallet and the senses. Every week will be a little different, and every week there will be something new to revel in,” says Peter Baker, director of Food and Beverage at Snowbasin Resort. A scenic ride on the Needles Express Gondola to the top of the mountain sets the tone for the decadent and beautiful brunch experience at Needles Lodge.
While overlooking the breathtaking views of the valley, enjoy all you can eat delicious brunch items for just $38 including the gondola ride, tax, gratuity, and non-alcoholic beverages. For summer pass holders, the price is just $33. Dining Discovery: Mountain Top Brunch will be offered every Sunday from June 22 through Oct. 5.
The Mt. Ogden Burger Spa is a perfect way to treat yourself after hiking up to Needles Lodge or taking the gondola. A variety of inventive and delicious burgers await every Saturday afternoon at Needles Lodge starting June 14.
These Dining Discovery events are a great way to try something new or indulge in your favorite cuisine. For more information on any Dining Discovery event or to make reservations, please visit our website or call (801) 620-1000.
