Sun Valley Host Committee member Betsy Barrymore Stoll said, "We are hosting the largest gathering in decades of hotdoggers and freestyle skiers from the 1970s and 1980s, along with em-ployee reunions from K2, Head, Scott and Smith."
Featured event is the K2-Barrymore Freedogger Party Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Whiskey Jacques'. Admission is $10. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Ski movies will play all evening. There will be product giveaways, tons of K2 prizes, best 1970s costume awards, a K2 raffle (tickets $5) and a beer pong challenge on four upstairs tables.
