Blaine County School District Ski Weeks
Students hit the slopes this winter thanks to Sun Valley Co and a myriad of generous local ski stores, volunteers, staff and supporters.
Every elementary school in Blaine County offers a variation of the annual “Ski Week.” For many students, it’s their first and only opportunity to visit Dollar or Baldy and to learn how to ski. The sense of self-worth, pride, and confidence is evident in each and every smile that radiates off the slopes.
Numerous generous donors help provide everything from clothing to health insurance. Dozens of volunteers donate their time and energy to helping students learn. The Sun Valley Ski Patrol visits each school with their rescue dogs and safety information, and then they meet up with the students on the mountain, giving them instruction and advice. It’s yet another example of just how special our community is and just how extraordinary living in Blaine County can be.
