Snowbird, Utah (Snowbird Press Release)—October brings two weekends of free Aerial Tram rides at Snowbird with a donation to the Utah Food Bank. Snowbird Customer Appreciation Days will take place Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 13-14, and Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 20-21, weather permitting.
One can of food equals one free Tram ride during Customer Appreciation Days. In lieu of food, a $2 donation may be made for a Tram ride. All food donations benefit the Utah Food Bank and monetary donations benefit the Wasatch Adaptive Sports program.
The Tram will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both weekends. Bring food to the front entrance of the Snowbird Center, accessed by Snowbird Entry 2. Cash donations will be accepted at the Snowbird Center ticket office.
Live music will be provided by Naked April Saturday, Oct. 13, and Mr. Whoopee Saturday, Oct. 20. Performances will take place on the Snowbird Center Plaza Deck from 1-4 p.m.
Snowbird's ZipRider, Bungy Trampoline and Inflatable Kids Rides will also be open during Customer Appreciation Days, with the same operating hours as the Tram, weather permitting. Tickets for the ZipRider, Bungy Trampoline and Inflatable Kids Rides are separate from the Utah Food Bank food-raiser.
This weekend is the last weekend of Snowbird's 35th Annual Oktoberfest celebration with dancing, live music, fun for the kids and authentic food and drink. Rain, snow or shine, the final days of the festival are Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7. Oktoberfest hours are noon to 6 p.m. and admission is free.
Offering the longest season in Utah, Snowbird is scheduled to open for the 2007-08 season Saturday, Nov. 17. Last winter Snowbird had a 180-day season with skiing and riding from Nov. 18 to May 20.
