The Idaho ski resorts we have today were made possible through the vision, pioneering spirit and hard work of our industry's founders. The value of those efforts holds today, as resorts are showcases of quality recreation opportunities for skiers, snowboarders, and countless summer guests as well. Although many forces may draw us to the slopes-the thrill and excitement of
sliding down a mountain, the chance to reconnect with family and friends-we can never underestimate the value of the natural surroundings in renewing the human spirit.
We respect the natural settings that we call home and hope that through our current efforts,we will preserve this same experience for future generations to enjoy.
