Sun Valley Resort Opens Tomorrow With Top To Bottom Skiing!


Sun Valley Resort is opening on Thanksgiving Day for its 84th winter season. Adding to the excitement of the opening day, a Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Southeastern Idaho.

WHAT…Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches in the Wood River Valley and Island park region to as high as 20 inches in areas from Galena summit northwards. Winds gusting as high as 35 mph will cause heavy drifting of snow and very low visibility in blowing snow. – NOAA

The kick-off to the 2019/20 season will include terrain openings on The River Run side of Bald Mountain at 9:00 AM this Thursday, Nov. 28th. The first eight people in line on opening day will receive an exclusive jersey and gift card to celebrate the start of the season.

The five lifts scheduled to be turning are River Run, Lookout Express, Christmas, Roundhouse Express Gondola, and the Kinderspielplatz. The ten runs that will be open are Upper College, Lower College, 42nd Street, Lower River Run, Mid River Run, Lower Canyon, Roundhouse Slope, Sunset Strip, Roundhouse Lane, and Kinderspielplatz. More trails might be added, weather and snow conditions permitting. Dollar Mountain will begin operations on Friday, December 13.
