Sun Valley Reports Most Skiers in a Decade
KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — Sun Valley Co. officials say the number of skier visits to the company's ski area on central Idaho's Bald Mountain last winter is the most in a decade.
Spokesman Jack Sibbach tells the Idaho Mountain Express that the company had 419,000 skier days last winter.
The company says that's the most since the 2005-2006 season with 421,000 skier days.
Sibbach attributes last winter's high number to good early season snowfall, a strong national economy, expanded air service and advertising.
The ski area closed skiing on Sunday.
