Goodbye Dollar, Hello Snow!
After a stellar season, Dollar Mountain has said goodbye for the 2009/2010 season. To send off the season in style, Dollar Mountain and Sun Valley Resort hosted a skier/boarder cross on Saturday and a big Pond Skim Party Sunday. Dollar was jammed with people in costumes, kids, families, skiers, boarders, mono-skiers, snowbladers, telemarkers, Easter Bunnies and revelers as hundreds lined up for the pond skim. DJ’s played tunes, burgers were grilled, beers were served and even though the pond skim pond was eventually punctured by an enthusiastic skier, good time was had by all. It was the perfect way to celebrate an awesome season on Dollar Mountain!
Thank you to Tim Silva, Peter Stearns, John Matteson, Brian Callahan, the Sun Valley Snow Sports School, the Mountain Department, the Sun Valley Ski Patrol, the Snow Making and Grooming Staff, the SPT-crew, the lift operators, the staff at Dollar Lodge and everyone who made Dollar the place to be this year. See you in November!
And in case you haven’t noticed, it is snowing! Head up on Baldy and get some of the fresh snow that has been falling for the past week. Baldy’s last day isn’t until April 18th and there are calls for more snow in the next few days and over the weekend, plenty of time and snow left to enjoy!
