In Search of Snow 

From Bogus to Sun Valley, the season is on its way

In the continuing quest for fresh tracks, Sun Valley Resort has opened more of the mountain for the season.

The resort opened three additional runs on Baldy Dec. 11--Ridge, Blue Grouse and Lower College--meaning that the majority of the River Run and Warm Springs areas of the mountain are now open, although Seattle Ridge remains closed for the time being. River Run, Challenger and Christmas lifts are all open, as well as the new Roundhouse Gondola and Kinderspielplatz.

And, in a sign that the season might actually be starting, Dollar Mountain opened for the season after an abbreviated stint during the Thanksgiving weekend. The entire hill is now open, including the tubing hill.

Check for updated information and ski reports.

No word yet on an opening date for Bogus Basin, but the resort has the mountain ready to go as soon as there is enough snow. With that in mind, Bogus officials are asking you to please stop poaching the hill. You might be anxious, but they're trying to build up a base, thank you very much, so help them by staying off until opening.

In other Bogus news ... There's the good: Bogus is saving $70,000 per year. And the bad: They're doing it by ending ski and snowboard check in. Instead, new racks are available at Black Diamond Sports, where skiers and boarders can rent low-cost combination locks.

For now, we suggest a snow dance.
