Are you up for—gulp—the 9th annual Baldy Challenge?

The goal is to ski all 98 of Baldy’s named runs. Or, at least, half or more of the 98 runs in the Half-Challenge.

It’s possible to achieve the latter just skiing groomed runs. And there is a Dollar Challenge, as well.

The FUN-draiser is a good way to explore Sun Valley’s iconic mountain, even challenging yourself to ski runs you’ve never skied before.

And all the money goes to The Senior Connection.

“In the past eight years the PK’s Baldy Challenge has raised more than $32,000 for local non-profits,” said Chelle Gourlay.

“It’s not true that you have to ski every run on Baldy to be part of the challenge,” she added. “It is true that it’s a super fun event celebrating our local lifestyle while supporting local 501©3 organizations and helping get the word out about what they do.”

You can take on the challenge with friends or solo.

Purchase a run card at Apples or PK’s Ski & Sports for $30 or a Dollar Challenge card for $10 (remember: the money goes to The Senior Connection). Turn in your card at PK’s by Feb. 29. Even if you don’t ski a single run the blank card you turn in will be eligible for prizes donated by sponsors.

The Challenge will end with the Closing Ceremonies—think party—from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, at Whiskey Jacques. It’s free to participants and open to the public via a small donation.

Prizes include a full season ski pass from Sun Valley Resort, your choice of a 2020-21 pair of K2 skis from PK’s Ski & Sport, an overnight staycation and dinner for two at The Knob hill Inn and Grill, and gift certificates and swag from local restaurants, such as Lefty’s Bar & Grill, The Cellar Pub, Grumpy’s, Apple’s Bar & Grill and Warfield Distillery.
