For the week of April 18 through April 24, 2001

Winter that almost 
was, is

Express Staff Writer

With some of the best skiing of the season on cool, shady slopes, Sun Valley Co. graciously made an eleventh-hour decision to keep Baldy open to skiers and snowboarders for another week.

The ski area—this time for real—will close for the winter season on Sunday.

Although ample snow remained on the hill, Warm Springs block party revelers celebrated what they thought was the end of the ski season over the weekend. That was before Sun Valley Co. announced that Baldy would be open yet another week. Pictured above, the Bobos jam as B-B-Q Bob looks smashing in his cool candystriped pants.

Over the weekend, revelers danced away what they thought was the end of the season at a traditional Warm Springs block party. Watering holes were chock full. The Bobos made music. Spring slack—and biking and hiking—had commenced.

Not so fast.

Taking advantage of the warm spring temperatures and a mixing of the seasons, Sun Valley proudly announced in a press release that you can have a "same day ski and tee."

The Challenger lift will be the only lift operating during the last week of skiing. Christmas lift, which had been open until last Sunday, will be closed.

For golfers, the Sun Valley Resort Golf Course is open and has a spring special through April 29. Prices are $36 for 18 holes and $24 for nine holes.
