Tour of Utah, Sky Gazing, and a Crawfish Boil at Snowbasin Resort

July 31 2017

Snowbasin, UT July 27 2017 Summer is still in full swing at Snowbasin Resort this August. Snowbasin kicks off the month with welcoming the Tour of Utah Stage 2 Finish on Tuesday, August 1. Racers will be coming from Brigham City with an exciting uphill finish on Old Snowbasin Road. Take a long lunch or make a day out of it and get out of the heat of the city. Cheer the racers on, grab some food at Earl’s Lodge and enjoy the trail system around Snowbasin Resort.

The 5th Anniversary Blues, Brews & BBQ line-up has been great so far and August is no different. Snowbasin is excited to fill the air with music from Old 97’s, Turnpike Troubadours, Robert Randolph &

the Family Band, and Larry & His Flask on Sunday afternoons throughout August.

The third week of August, Snowbasin centers their events around the sky. The Dark Sky Viewing Night is back on August 19. With the popularity of this event, Snowbasin has expanded the evening offerings with opening both Earl’s Lodge and Needles Lodge plus a free showing of Star Wars on Earl’s Lawn. On Monday, August 21 Snowbasin is offering a Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing at Needles Lodge. The path of totality is about 150 miles north, but Northern Utah will have the greatest viewing circumstances in the state. The gondola will take riders to the top of Needles for the viewing that starts at 10:13 am, the peak is at 11:33 am, and the end is at 12:59 pm.

The Dining Discovery Dinner this month is a Cajun Crawfish Boil on Friday, August 25. It will be a family backyard style Crawfish Boil with shrimp, Andouille sausage, potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, creole dishes, and incredible desserts. The seafood will literally be poured on the table. A featured beverage will include ‘hurricanes’, which can be made alcoholic or non-alcoholic. A traditional ‘Dixie Land Jazz Band’ will provide entertainment. See the full menu at www.snowbasin.com .
