Sun Valley Bucket liSt Sign up for Ski Patrol 101: Every Saturday, the patrollers take two guests out for a sunrise view of what it takes to open and patrol the mountain. It’s free. Sign up in the River Run Day Lodge. Guests are selected by raffle. 1 2 Ride the Beast: Climb up into the cab of a groomer to see how that corduroy gets laid out. You’ll definite-ly want to fasten your seat belt because heading down the runs is a thrill. If you’re prone to seasickness, you may want to take a Drama-mine or two. 3 Eat dinner on the mountain: Ride the gondola up for dinner at the Roundhouse. The old ski chalet was built in 1939 and serves gourmet fare. Tip: Order the Idaho trout for a taste of local cuisine at its best. Stay in Papa’s suite: Book a stay in Ernest Hemingway’s suite, which includes a living room, den, bedroom, bar, private patio, and view of Baldy. 4 5 Take a sleigh ride to Trail Creek Cabin: Winter is lovely weather for a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the Idaho countryside to a cozy log cabin for dinner. Opposite page: the Beast (a snowgroomer). This page, clockwise from top left: a sleigh ride; snow biking; ski-ers on the mountain. Diablo 27
