Snowbasin Ski Resort has four magnificent buildings that house the ski resort services and facilities. There are three grandiose day lodges as well as the Grizzly Center guest services building at the main base. The lodges are almost replicas of those at the sister resort of Sun Valley. They have high ceilings, golden chandeliers, enormous majestic fireplaces, and imported European marble. The bathrooms are a sight to behold and every building has signage in swanky gold lettering. Even the ski patrol buildings have gold lettering! You feel guilty walking into any of the buildings with your ski or snowboard boots on, and if your pants are a bit damp, you certainly don’t want to sit down on any of the throne-like chairs. The resort facilities are so ridiculously plush that they could make Deer Valley look like a pauper’s mountain.

Snowbasin Ski Rentals, Snowboard Equipment

The very well organised equipment rental shop is located in the Grizzly Center. The skis and snowboards are predominantly of the recreational variety with prices that are middle of the road for Utah ski resorts. There is some performance and demo gear for rent also, but this comes with a premium price tag.

The Snowbasin repair shop is huge and is the ultimate in repair shops!

Off-mountain Snowbasin ski rental and snowboard rental options include Diamond Peak Mountain Sports in Eden or Alpine Sports in Ogden.

Facilities for Children

Child care facilities are no longer available at Snowbasin.

One option for child care is High Altitude Kids in Eden, which provide services for babies through to kids aged 10 on Monday through Saturday during the ski season.

Tubing is no longer available at Snowbasin.

Snowbasin Ski School

Snowbasin offers very generous beginner programs, in part because the resort has difficulty attracting beginners. With a minimal multi-day program, beginners can then get a season pass.

The Snowbasin ski school offers adult group lessons (ages 13+) which are reasonably priced on weekdays, and more expensive on weekends and holidays.

Group lessons for children are for ages 4-6 and then ages 7-12.

Snowbasin offers private lessons and various clinics including an adaptive program.

Eating On Mountain

All three day lodges have self-service restaurants, but the award winning dining is a far cry from your standard cafeteria food. Snowbasin pays particular attention to its catering standards, and it is reflected in the superb quality and taste of its food. Expect to pay a little more for lunch considering the quality of the food and the amazing views at Needles and john Paul Lodge.

For a taste of Austria, go to Needles Lodge for fare such as wiener schnitzel, bratwurst, goulash soup and rösti. You might have to ski or snowboard hard to make up for the calorific indulgence.

In Earl’s Lodge there is also the Cinnabar which provides table service meals. At the base of the Strawberry Express Gondola, there is a coffee bar where you can grab a quick snack and a hot beverage.

Earl’s Lodge in particular can be like a zoo on busy days and it can be really difficult to find a seat, so it’s no great surprise that the staff chase out brown baggers that are not paying their way. Picnic spaces are provided in the lower levels of the Needles and John Paul lodges and any outdoor seating areas.
