Early Season Snow Is Helping Sun Valley Resort


By Brandon Redmond

Ketchum, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Baldy's bowls and the mayday lift opened today. With more than three feet of new snow, terrain openings were moved up. In addition, Seattle ridge and the Seattle ridge day lodge will also open next Friday, December 14th. On dollar, skiers and riders can expect quarter and half dollar lifts and the accelerator carpet opening for the season on Saturday.

"We've had 37" of snow last weekend. We're very blessed with the condition. It's mid winter conditions right now. The bowls opened today. It's the earliest I remember them opening since the early 80's. So the skiing is excellent right now," said Jack Sibbach from the Sun Valley Resort.

This opening date is about 2 to 3 weeks ahead of average.
