From the window of a whimsical pink cottage with green trim, LittleCow's servers dispense cups of shaved ice doused with more than 30 types of syrup. Patrons can choose flavors such as blue coconut, bubblegum, and hot tamale or combine several for a multifaceted treat. If desired, servers will layer shaved ice with ice cream and sweet cream.
It was 1939 when a skier first zipped down Snowbasin's slopes. In the decades since, the historic resort has seen expansions, renovations, and momentous occasions, each of which culminated with its hosting several winter games events. Today, Snowbasin features 3,000 skiable acres over 3,000 vertical feet, punctuated by varied terrain, high-speed chairlifts, and multitudes of exhilarating activities.
On the slopes, skiers have their pick of varying levels of difficulty via three progressive terrain parks with more than 65 rails. Guests can also glean insight from a team of PSIA/AASI–certified instructors more than 100 strong while practicing new techniques or attempting their first mountain yodel. The resort's list of attractions includes family-friendly activities, too, including a four-lane, lift-assisted tubing hill. Groomed, tree-studded Nordic trails provide a more tranquil outing, beckoning cross-country skiers to carve up the snow at no charge. When hunger strikes, groups can duck into Earl's Lodge at the mountain's base for wood-fired pizzas and burgers or venture up to the John Paul Lodge, where diners enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the resort and the neighboring peak's yeti colony from the lodge's mountainside perch nearly 9,000 feet up.
