SKI SEASON OPENS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23! Sun Valley Resort will open its 70th ski season one day early, Wednesday, November 23, 2005 at 9 am.Both Baldy and Dollar Mountains will open with the following lifts and terrain:River Run #1, Lookout Express #5 and Challenger #10.Ski conditions are subject to change, weather permitting
I spoke briefly with Sun Valley staff on Thursday.Temps on top of Baldy were 32 or below, cold enough to gun out snow.
I have skied, skated, & hiked Sun Valley. There is a unique feel that everyonw sould experience. The history, the first Lift associated, I believe built by the railroad. A classic, for beverage relaxation has got to be the "The Ram's Head". The village is a story in itself that everyone can enjoy. I am thankful that I finally made contact with Jack at Sun Valley and will be carrying the Sun Valley news, and Updates.

So, talking about winter and snow, we have received a total of 34 inches of snow in Novemberd the snowmakers have made snow seven of the past ten days.
The decision will be made early next week as to what runs and lifts we will open with, definitely lower mountain stuff, and quite possibly some upper mountain runs and lifts. This information will be posted to our snow report section of our web site as soon as it is known.
