Ski Club plans busy winter with Baldy Cup

Reunion Week is earlier this winter

     The Sun Valley Ski Club is again hosting the Baldy Cup Race Series featuring giant slalom and slalom races for all ages and levels.

     On the 11-race slate for 2014 are Intermountain Masters’ Skoch Cup in January, the multi-tasking Leif’s Race in February, and the new Super Hero GS. You can participate in one or all of the races.

     Prizes are awarded at each race with age group brackets and for the overall Baldy Cup. World Cup-style scoring is used to determine the leaders.  Last year Erika Hogan and Miles Fink-Debray took home Baldy Cup honors as well as sizable cash prizes.

     Many of the races are scheduled on weekends, providing increased racing opportunities for recreational racers and families.

     The Series kicks off Thursday, Dec. 19 with Club
Slalom and finishes in mid-March with the two-day Sun Valley Ski Club Championships.

     Interestingly, the Sun Valley Ski Club Reunion Week has moved up a month in the winter schedule. The 48th annual gathering is set for Sunday through Friday, Jan. 5-10 at Sun Valley Resort.
