Big winters linger

This just in: If you head to Idaho to bike or paddle, don't forget your skis

SUN VALLEY, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s wet winter has made for one of the best ski seasons on record for the Sun Valley Resort. The resort still had more than 100 inches of snow in early April, typically the downward slope of the skiing season.

“It’s one of the best in the 40 years we’ve kept records,”said Jack Sibbach, marketing director for the resort. The snow depth on the top of Bald Mountain on April 3 was at 107 inches. Snow depth at its maximum this year was 282 inches before higher temperatures started compressing the snow. The resort plans to remain open until June.
