Skiers on Baldy
Easter Sunday 2004 has been

The Hobson family started the race
in memory of their father, Roy L. Hobson who passed away in 1960 and his
daughter, Sheila Dorothy Hobson-Dolsot, who died in 1980.
The casual race format and picnic,
which serves over 500 people, is open to all members of the Sun Valley
and Hailey Ski Teams. The top time in each age group, boy and girl, is
awarded a perpetual trophy that is displayed year round in the Sun

The Hobson Memorial Race and
Picnic is run by parent volunteers, coaches, staff of the Sun Valley Ski
Education Foundation, with the support of the Sun Valley Company.
