Sun Valley Powder Festival – The Ultimate Snow Dance Weekend

Sun Valley Powder Festival – The Ultimate Snow Dance Weekend

Good skiing, a new terrain park and more snow on its way!

We already know the skiing on Baldy is good enough to mostly ignore the weather reports and continue to ski every day. With the bumps of Upper and Mid Limelight in prime condition, the wide cruisers of Warm Springs with good coverage, the recent opening of Greyhawk lift, and Seattle Ridge looking closer and closer every day to opening, we really don’t have that much to complain about. But this morning we couldn’t help checking every report we could find. Most predict a 60%- 80% chance of snow for the next few days. Others say there is a slight chance of snow accumulation tonight and possibly 3-5 inches Monday night… But snow or not, we’ll be up there.

This was a big weekend for Sun Valley Co. In case you didn’t hear, a terrain park opened on Dollar Saturday. And it has been a massive hit so far. Skiers and boarders, both locals and tourists, kids and adults, athletes and fans, were hugely impressed by the park, the features, the quality…. Check out local tele-skier, Conor Davis’ video below for more.

And if that isn’t enough, check out the numbers. Dollar Mountain counted 634 skiers Saturday, while the five-year average for December 19th is 190. Sunday dollar counted 772 skiers, with the five-year average for December 20th being 307.

Congratulations and thanks to Sun Valley Company for making our beloved mountain even more dynamic, exciting, and appealing!
