Sun Valley Powder Festival – The Ultimate Snow Dance Weekend

Film Screening – Decoding Deepak

Film Screening – Decoding Deepak
Thursday, May 24, 7:00 pm, Sun Valley Opera House

The Sun Valley Wellness Festival is proud to partner with NALA Productions for a special Thursday evening showing of Decoding Deepak, a new feature-length documentary film that chronicles one year in the life of spiritualist and pop cultural icon Deepak Chopra. The film, which was written, directed and produced by Deepak’s son, filmmaker and journalist Gotham Chopra, follows Deepak as he road-trips across the world to uncover who Deepak really is, separating the man from the myth with a raw honesty only a son can have. What starts as a decoding of Deepak becomes an examination of himself, and possibly an allegory of a world trying to make sense of itself.

Admission: $10

Lift Line: The National Brotherhood of Skiing Returns to Sun Valley

The annual "Black Ski Mini-Summit" comes to America’s Original Ski Town

 Over the past 75 years, Sun Valley has played host to countless groups, companies, conferences, summits and special events throughout its storied history. It’s been the locale for family reunions for the likes of the Kennedys and the Hemingways. Allen and Company and their list of some of the world’s most powerful and influential people meet here every summer. Countless weddings, press outlets like Powder Magazine and Transworld Business, film production companies, Wounded Warriors participants, the Special Olympics, international Nordic Olympic teams, alpine ski teams from across the country, world class musicians from Itzhak Perlman to Michael Franti, comedians like Bill Cosby and speakers like the Dalai Lama, artists, crafts festivals and so many more have all enjoyed Sun Valley as playground and backdrop for meetings of the mind.

And this week another distinguished group is joining us for some turns on Baldy. As Sun Valley is pleased to once again host the National Brotherhood of Skiing (NBS) for the first time in over a decade! This biennial event, held in Sun Valley from February 25th to March 3rd, brings an estimated 1,000 members to our beloved ski town and will infuse the local economy by spending more than $500,000!

"We are excited to return to Sun Valley after 14 years. Our members have fond memories of the resort’s beautiful scenic surroundings and wide range of ski terrain.  We are excited to see what Sun Valley has to offer," said Haymon Jahi, NBS President.

The National Brotherhood of Skiing is making its mark on Sun Valley.

Now in celebrating its 39th anniversary, the National Brotherhood of Skiing is continuing its mission to: Identify, develop and support athletes of color who will WIN Olympic and international winter sports competitions representing the United States and to increase participation in winter sports. Fitting with the mission, the theme for this year’s gathering is "Dare to Dream."

There are 60 NBS clubs nationwide who represent more than 3,000 members. Support of this biennial Summit enables the NBS to fund its youth athletic programs and their goal of introducing 100,000 youth to winter sports.

As Jahi explained, "Sun Valley’s long and fabled history make it an ideal location to reflect on our past and plan for the future."

We agree.

The NBS plans a non-stop schedule of events during the Summit.  Beyond the skiing, riding and social events, the organization will host leadership meetings and elect national officers.  Summit week’s most popular events will include:

Opening Ceremonies (Sunday, February 26 – Ketchum Town Square)

Avalanche Awareness Seminar (Tuesday, February 28 – River Run Day Lodge – hosted jointly with the U.S. Forest Service)

Picnic-On-The-Hill/ Club Races, (Wednesday, Feb. 29 – Sun Valley’s Warm Springs Parking Lot)
