It’s school vacation and many families are out of town, but Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation alpine ski teamers who are still here are looking forward to the 36th annual Hobson Memorial races.
They are scheduled for Friday, March 29 to be run like a NASTAR event on Baldy’s Arc Park ski run. SVSEF U-12 Travel head coach Adele Savaria encouraged participants to come dressed in costumes for the spring event.
Starting time for the Hobson Memorial is 10 a.m. Friday. Ski team end-of-season awards and Hobson trophies will be given out at 1 p.m. at Apple’s Bar & Grill, along with cake and lemonade. Entry fee is $10. Sign up by Wednesday, March 27. Get a sign-up form at svsef.org. Last year there were 75 racers for the Hobson.
