Monday, September 5, the 4th Annual No Name Chili Fest will take place 12:30pm – 4:00pm. 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.
