Bald Mountain enthusiasts will have more terrain to choose from on Friday, Dec. 11, as Sun Valley Resort opens three more runs: Ridge, Blue Grouse and Lower College.

This comes just a week after two additional runs opened last Friday—Roundhouse Slope and Canyon. The mountain opened for the season on Thanksgiving.

Baldy received 2 inches of snow in the past week, bringing the summit snow depth to 35 inches, mid-mountain depth to 32 inches and base depth to 28 inches. Resort spokesman Jack Sibbach said snowguns have been doing a lot of the work, running full blast.

River Run trails currently open are Upper College, Mid River Run, Lower River Run, 42nd Street, Upper Canyon, Lower Canyon, Roundhouse Lane and Kinderspielplatz.

River Run lifts open are River Run, Roundhouse Express Gondola, Christmas and Kinderspielplatz.

Warm Springs trails currently open are Upper Warm Springs, Warm Springs face, Mid Warm Springs, Lower Warm Springs, Lower Picabo's Street and Flying Squirrel. The only lift open is Challenger.

In addition to Baldy's Friday trail openings, Dollar Mountain and Carol's Dollar Mountain Lodge, which have been closed Monday through Thursday during the past two weeks, will reopen Saturday, Dec. 12, and stay open on a daily basis for the rest of the season.

The weather forecast predicts slight chances of snow every day for the rest of the week.
