Sun Valley Gets Sendy

Class V rapids? Nah, how about some good old fashioned deep pow. If this video doesn’t get you pumped about the weekend, then maybe you should consider trying it yourself. You might experience a strange feeling of contemplating launching off your roof on a sled, but before you do, perhaps locate yourself in Sun Valley, ID, where you will be met with a much softer landing.
