SUN VALLEY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and this holiday some people might choose to have their turkey on the slopes.

Sun Valley Resorts 87th Ski Season will kick off on Thanksgiving Day, starting at 9 a.m. and closing at 4 p.m

An official with the resort says there are no restrictions on passes. And anyone who has not bought a pass yet can buy one online, or at the resort.

Additionally, the resort is anticipating having more lifts and runs open for opening day than in years past, with the entire face of River Run expected to be open.

Plus, there will also be some new attractions this year at the resort, such as new terrain parks on Bald Mountain, and they are hoping to expand it and make it more family friendly. 

“We also have one new ski run that we are opening this year. Little Scorpion, which is a glade run, was known to locals, was out of bounds but is now inbounds due to our work, with US Forest Service, National Forest Foundation and Healthy Forest Initiative,” said Sun Valley Resort Director of Marketing & PR Bridget Higgins.

Additionally starting Spring 2023 Sun Valley Resort is going to be starting its Warm Springs Enhancement project, which is replacing the two chair lifts that are over in Warm Springs. The purpose of the project is to open up more terrain and cut new trails. Higgins said there is more to come on the project more in the next few weeks and months.

The lifts on Dollar Mountain are expected to open on December 9th.
