Sun Valley Resort kicked off its 84th winter season with over 20 inches of fresh snow and expertly groomed trails. The steady snowfall and ideal conditions, combined with the free hot cocoa and commemorative mugs, made for a memorable first day.
Skiers and riders lined up at both the River Run Express lift and Roundhouse Express gondola well before 9:00 a.m. so they could get first dibs down the mountain. With five lifts and ten runs rolling, it was the place to be on Thanksgiving morning. Sunny the Bear made an appearance and even took some turns to kick-off the festivities. An Instagram scavenger hunt on Bald Mountain took place each day this weekend.
