As the Winter Olymipcs’ newest sport, ski cross, gains popularity, the Sun Valley ski area thought it would be a good idea to build a SkierCross course! Get your skills in top form, and maybe we’ll see you in Sochi in 2014! Here are some details from the Sun Valley blog:

“Dollar Mountain has added yet another draw to their arsenal. Yesterday, Brian Callahan and the rest of the park crew completed Sun Valley’s very first SkierCross course. Starting beside the second gap jump on Dollar’s Old Bowl and continuing down alongside the rest of the Terrain Park, the course includes a couple tables, left and right bank turns, rhythms, and a couple more gaps. The course provides skiers and riders an opportunity to check out the Winter Olympics’ newest sport, SkiCross, and hone their skills. The course is open to the public but riders are encouraged to ski and board safely, as well as be aware of other skiers and boarders in the terrain park and on the hill.

Stop by Dollar this weekend to check out the new SkierCross course, witness the action of the 54th annual Kindercup, or watch the SPT Terrain Park Team Rider Demo in Dollar’s Terrain Park following the Kindercup at 1 pm on Saturday afternoon.”
