You gotta have this!

So many flavors, so little time. We hit Tropical Sno after 4 days rafting on the mighty Colorado, and on a piping hot Independence Day afternoon it was like manna from heaven!

Nothing quite satisfies like eating a huge bowl of shave ice in the sun and heat of the desert. This tiny trailer offers friendly service, huge portions, and delicious flavors (we had the Vampire Bite - combo vampire blood, strawberry, black cherry - and a combo of dreamsicle/vanilla.) Outstanding!

This was a must stop after hiking in Arches Nat. Park on a 100 degree day. I ordered a Medium and it was HUGE! So tasty and refreshing! If your in Moab, don't miss it!

Real, Hawaii-style shave ice. Many flavor options and the price is well below what we expected ($2 for a small). Worth the stop!

We ate shave ice in Hawaii and it wasn't as good as this. Large serving with a million flavor choices. Located in the center of downtown, this is an awesome break form the heat!

My friend and I were on a cross country road trip and we spent one night in Moab while visiting Arches and Canyonlands. After visiting both parks we went back to Moab to grab a quick dinner and then decided "why not have dessert" as well. We stopped here to grab some shaved ice on the go and it was... More
