This weekend, April 3-4, Dollar Mountain and Sun Valley Company will be celebrating an epic season on Dollar Mountain.
The 2009/2010 had many highlights, including the introduction of the new SPT-designed terrain park, the revamp of the tubing park, the Lunar Eclipse Rail Jam Series, a skier/boarder cross course, a photo shoot with Monster Energy/Scott/Freeskier Magazine, and huge numbers of kids, families, skiers and boarders enjoying Dollar Mountain.
So in order to go out with a bang, Sun Valley Company is honoring Dollar Mountain and the local community with “Dollar Dayz”. The action will start Saturday, April 3, with a skier/boarder cross race. The race will have two age groups, ten and under, and 11-15. The race cost is $10, sign up is at nine, and racers will be in the gates at noon.
Dollar Dayz will continue Sunday, Dollar’s final day of the season, with a Pond Skim, BBQ, and Last Day of the Season Party. This is Dollar Mountain’s “Thank You” to the community, a way for them to thank the local community for making this one of Dollar’s best seasons ever. Everyone is invited to participate in this age-old spring tradition that has skiers and boarders gliding across the water on their skis or boards and costumes are strongly encouraged. There will also be a bbq, beer tent, and music. The Pond Skim is FREE for all ages, sign up is from 9 am -11 am, and the main event will begin at 1:00pm. There will also be a prize for the best costume, so come decked out and ready for some spring fun in the Sun Valley sun!
