It’s called the Hawaiian Nationals…but there’s actually skiing going on. How? Well, the event isn’t held in Hawaii, it’s in Sun Valley, on Baldy! It’s a fun and entertaining tradition in Sun Valley, and it’s a great way for the area to say goodbye to the ski season. People dress up in costume, and it’s a good time all around.

No alpine skiers are allowed, it’s a strictly telemark event. Registration is at Warm Springs Lodge between 9 and 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Races take place on Cozy at 11 a.m. All participants can join in a telemark parade at 3 p.m. at the top of Baldy. followed by a tailgate party. Here’s some footage from last year’s event:
