a gentle reminder:

come for one day or stay for all 7 days, be sure to take time to enjoy all that is Sun Valley, from skiing to sitting pool side. There is more than enough snow catting adventures, to take a day to do something special. Sun Valley is a such a special place, come and enjoy all that is Sun Valley.

As we all know, all too well, we are living in very unusual times and Sun Valley Inc, is and will continue it's commitment to keeping everyone safe and that is my single goal, it is important to have everyone go home healthy with a lifetime of wonderful memories.

The info/goodie bags will contain a detailed schedule of events and directions to each days adventure, along with snow cat stickers, so we are legal and compliant with usage laws, t-shirts, all on trail lunches, snow cat idaho stickers are provided at no charge, etc etc etc

First, our room rate at Sun Valley Inn, will be $225.00 King bed and $245.00 for 2 Queen beds, plus taxes, the rates are higher if you want to stay in Sun Valley Lodge. I post the link to make room reservations in a separate post.

I did not see anything about the Rocket Sled event in the itinerary, is this still going to be an activity? If so I know that myself and at least one other Idaho resident will be bringing a custom super modified IDAHO sled, where full cheating will be incorporated.

We are going forward with the Sno(w) cat Serenade, Sun Valley, Idaho, March 10-16, 2021.

Come for one day or seven days, there will be a snow cat adventure each day. This longer schedule gives folks a chance to enjoy all that Sun Valley offers, like skiing, ice staking, X-country skiing or just sitting pool side.

Put it on your calender, and watch for details to be posted in the coming weeks.

and Yes, we are very aware of the corvid-19 restrictions and concerns, we are fully prepared to take all precautions and will be taking your health and safety seriously, the number one goal is for everyone to come, have a very enjoyable time and go home healthy. Sun Valley has successfully adjusted operations to become a leader in how to provide safe environment for all guests and employees.

Camping! OK, I've been a bit back logged on this. I was going to do a survey monkey....

How many of the serenade folks think they 1:will camp 2:want camp 3:might camp 4 won't camp 5: what you crazy?

only 1-3 need reply. OK, the camping location is the Baker Creek Campground where we based lunch out of last year. While I love snow camping, I know it's not everyone's thing. The initial idea is group meals for dinner, breakfast. everyone provide own accommodations. I will coordinate cooking etc. Now, while Baker Creek is not the Stanley Basin (where the record low temp for cont US was set) it may be a tad cold so some preparation is in line. I have located a camping rental company that will ship to ? (if folks need this, I will contact the inn and see if they will accept the package for you). But, I suspect most snow campers have their own equipment.

If it doesn't work for you on this trip, I do urge you to try snow camping, it is my favorite camping experience.
