Coming off of the success of the first Sun Valley Nordic Festival in 2010, more than 30 area organizations are partnering up again to put on the nine-day event. Whether you are an avid cross-country skier or just enjoy all the great food, music, art and people watching that Ketchum and Sun Valley have to offer, the Sun Valley Nordic Festival is bound to be your bucket of snow.
This year's event lineup is filled with many more outdoor activities including competitive and non competitive skiing, twilight ski activities, snowshoe races and dance competitions. To cap off the plethora of festivities, the Nordic Festival will culminate with the Boulder Mountain Tour and Half Boulder, a 32K cross-country race boasting up to 1,000 participants every year.
The Wood River Valley boasts 300 days of sunshine a year and breathtaking landscapes, with more than 200 kilometers of groomed ski trails for both classic and skating techniques.[ Video is no longer available. ]
