Above and Beyond; More than Just a Landscape
Sun Valley Team Members...
We want to take a moment with you, the entire Sun Valley team, to reflect on the incredible spirit, resilience and strength of character you have shown this past winter season. Not only have you demonstrated professionalism in your jobs, but you have made it clear that, as a team, you deliver on the Sun Valley promise: a memorable and engaged experience of the highest quality.
You have not only proven why we are the #1 ski resort in North America, but you have been tested by personal loss, difficult snow conditions, the uncertainty of pandemic and many more challenges. Our true respect and affection for one another and focus on the quality of the experience for our teams and our guests make Sun Valley a very special place to work and to play.
Thank you for making the 2021-2022 winter season a tremendous success in so many ways, and one that has truly shown the soul and commitment of this great team.
With gratitude and respect,
Peter Stearns and Tony Parkhill
“SnowSports had a great 21/22 winter season and we experienced tremendous growth in numerous ways!...
A lot of our team members took on new roles and brought their passion for skiing/snowboarding and
teaching to SnowSports. Our supervisors, trainers, instructors and desk staff all contributed to a successful season. Even with the challenges of COVID, every
SnowSports team member provided the best customer experience.
We were also so excited for the opportunity to start the Employee Learn to Ski Program! This program provided an opportunity for employees to learn or improve their
skiing/snowboarding skills. More than just providing lessons, they were a great way for us to get to know more employees from other departments.
As we start to wrap up this season, we are reflecting on what we have learned and what we can do to make next season even better. We are so proud and appreciative of our entire SnowSports team!”
This has been a great season for the Sun Valley Nordic Center. We waited patiently for snow and were rewarded with a constant flow through December. Skiing has been fantastic all season long. Our groomers, Dan Zweifel and Thayne Hendricks, have been doing a great job keeping the trails in tip top shape. They were treated to a Prinoth Husky, Nordic snow cat to start the season. This machine was a demo, but we all saw the benefits of a cat that is designed for this
specific use and were quite impressed with it and hope someday to have one of our own. ...
The Nordic Center is lucky to have long term employees in Glenn Vanwinkle and John Abell who keep our rental and repair shop humming. These two have been stalwarts in their dedication customer service and keeping the rental fleet in
great condition. This year we welcomed a few new folks to our roster including Liza Wilson, Bob White, Shawn Aicher and Katie Morning. Both Liza and Katie do double duty working in the shop and teaching our guests to ski better. They join new folks from last year Ginny Glasscock and Mike Treshow. This is a team that can do it all!
