PK's Ski Tuner

Andy Buchanan at PK's Ski and Sports repairs ski bases Monday, in preparation for Baldy's opening on Thursday.

Sun Valley Resort will launch its 86th winter season on Thursday, Nov. 25, Thanksgiving Day, with top-to-bottom skiing on the River Run side of Bald Mountain.

The resort plans to run the River Run, Lookout Express, Roundhouse Gondola and Christmas lifts, which collectively provide access to the summit of Baldy from the River Run base area. Weather permitting, it plans to offer skiing and snowboarding on Upper College, Lower College, Sunset Strip, 42nd Street and Lower River Run. (Updates will be provided on the resort’s app.)

Food service will be offered at the River Run Lodge and at the Lookout, at the summit.
