New Year, New Season, New Future and Hopefully, New Snow.

2010 is just a few hours away and we now look forward to what the New Year, the new season, and possibly the new snow holds for Sun Valley. With 75 years of history behind us, containing a storied past of great skiers, celebrities, politicians, ripping locals, blue skies, and sun-filled seasons of good skiing; we are excited and hopeful for what the future has in store for our much-loved mountain.

We have a rough year behind us. In 2009, the economy served to threaten our tourist-dependant community and it is easy to see the misfortune. But instead, we look back on a community that continues to grow, people that continue to work hard, a company with a vision for the future, a passionate, outspoken and hard-working generation of youth in the valley who want the best for their hometown, and a mountain that has continually stood tall over our valley as it has for ages, serving as a pillar for our community and a cornerstone for ski culture throughout the world.

With timeless Bald Mountain, a new terrain park on Dollar, a new era of management, an ever-present supply of sunny skies and short lift lines, 3,300 feet of vertical just waiting to be skied, an environment that provides endless terrain for Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and mountain biking, and a community that continues to support and enjoy this blessed place, we can be nothing but grateful we live in Sun Valley and be nothing but optimistic for all that 2010 has in store.

Now with a forecast calling for 17-20 inches in the area overnight tonight, it seems the New Year is most definitely starting out right.

So check out to the festivities in Sun Valley, head to one of the parties in downtown Ketchum, or snuggle at home on the couch and ring in the New Year with optimism, love, hope, and cross your fingers for all that snow. Happy New Year to you and yours!

    Our family is relatively new to the SunValley ‘experience’, we started coming to Ketchum in 2004 and haven’t stopped since. We have some of our most treasured memories of our children, now 6 & 11 learning to ski at Dollar and perfecting turns on Baldy. We love all the restaurants, shopping and the endless array of activities. I would like to thank Earl & Carol Holdings for making such amazing improvements over the last decade, you have truly made a place for love, joy and laughter.

    Happy New Year to all the people that make this such a magical place.
