Sun Valley, Idaho

Updated: Mar 6

An intimate discussion on Bald Mountain and more with Zach Crist.

An amazing episode with our very special guest Zach Crist, a multifaceted skier, guide and Sun Valley local. We explore Sun Valley and Ketchum, skiing Bald Mountain and skiing the thousands of acres of backcountry in the three mountain ranges around Sun Valley.

After a huge skiing career as a Wold Cup racer, Xgames winner, big mountain skier, and with Warren Miller; Zach became the owner and operator of Sun Valley Guides.  Zach knows the mountain, the backcountry and the area very well. He also knows the history of the area which makes for an interesting view of the resort, the ski school and the surrounding mountains.
