Olympian Introduces X-Country Skiing to Sun Valley
 
           
 
Saturday, February 2, 2019
 

BY KAREN BOSSICK

Dr. Buck Levy’s introduction of cross country skiing as we know it today wasn’t met with immediate enthusiasm.

His fellow board members at the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation weren’t keen on taking on another sport, in addition to alpine ski racing. And Sun Valley officials were a bit fearful that people would flock from Bald and Dollar mountains to the flats.

Today, of course, Nordic skiing is so beloved that Sun Valley has christened itself NordicTown USA. Check out the story in today’s Eye on Sun Valley video. Then watch it on Cox Cable Channel 13 and 1013 beginning Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
