Ski Club Of New Jersey Sun Valley Club Trip 2017

 

Ski Club NJ at Sun Valley 2017

 

Sun Valley – March 1st to 8th, 2017 On March 1, 2017, 11 happy skiers left for Sun Valley via Denver and into the Hailey Freidman airport in Sun Valley. According to our transportation driver, Sun Valley was experiencing one of the best snow years in the last 20 years, as evidenced by approximately 4 feet of snow on the buildings roofs. Our accommodations at the Sun Valley Lodge were lovely and beautifully appointed.

The Lodge which has undergone a major renovation in the last few years had several amenities to keep everyone happy. A large outdoor heated pool and hot tub, ice skating, restaurants, spa, bar with entertainment, and a basement bowling alley. A group of us decided to give the bowling a whirl. All I can say is that no one scored over 100.

A very poor athletic example indeed. Our first few days were bright and sunny and most of us had some Gumby” legs by early afternoon.

We had forgotten how steep and how much vertical the mountain has, or perhaps it’s the fact that we were all 15 years younger in 2002.

Their “Green” runs were surely blues and possibly black runs in many other ski areas.

We enjoyed a group dinner together at The Cabin, where we had dined and taken a sleigh ride to on our 2002 ski trip to Sun Valley. The week passed quickly and fortunately there were no injuries or significant issues. Our flight home out of the Hailey Freidman airport to Denver was diverted to Twin Falls, Idaho, about an hour and a half away due to bad weather and difficulty of the small jets with the mountain airport. Home safe and looking forward to next years trip maybe to BIG SKY Montana!
