Roosters Snowbasin Pale Ale

To celebrate its 80th anniversary, Snowbasin Resort has collaborated with Roosters Brewing Co. to release Snowbasin Pale Ale


To celebrate its 80th anniversary, Snowbasin Resort has collaborated with Roosters Brewing Co. to release Snowbasin Pale Ale. Known as “Ogden’s Winter Playground” and one of the oldest continuously operating resorts in North America, Snowbasin turned 80 on November 27th. When it officially opened in 1940, Snowbasin was a small, local ski hill with just a single tow rope. Today, the resort offers over 3,000 acres of skiable terrain, 12 chairlifts, 6 luxury day lodges, and one of the top ski schools in the nation.

“Roosters crafted the perfect tribute to 80 years of legendary skiing and riding,” said Alan Dickerson, Director of Food and Beverage at Snowbasin Resort. “The Snowbasin Pale Ale is a toast to all our guests throughout the past 80 years. It’s a celebration of the adventures we had and those still yet to come. We look forward to welcoming old friends and new for another great season at Snowbasin.”

According to the folks at Roosters, Snowbasin Pale Ale is “a crisp combination of tropical and citrus notes balanced by the pine aromas of northwest hops.” The new brew is available at various locations throughout the resort including on draft at Cinnabar, Overlook, Earl’s Lodge, Needles Lodge and John Paul Lodge, and by the can at the outdoor, slopeside dining locations at Earl’s Lodge, Strawberry Gondola, and the Old Day Lodge. You can also find the beer at all three Roosters Brewing locations.
