The first annual Snowball Fat Bike Race on the Sun Valley Nordic Trails!

The “Snowball Special” was the name of the Union Pacific Railroad’s ski train which carried skiers from stops in Southern California to beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho, from 1958 to 1972.  Many LA based people took advantage of the trail’s route and Sun Valley’s offering of lodging-lift ticket-travel packages for the snow-bound commuters.  The vacation party began once the wheels started rolling, with a jazz band playing and passengers dancing from the departure to the arrival in Ketchum.  The summer bike trail and winter Nordic ski tracks were created on the historic trail bed of this once extremely festive train. Every year, Nordic ski races are held on these tracks.  This year Rusch Relations, the Fat Bike Advocacy Group, and the Wood River Bike Coalition is excited to add to that tradition with the first Snowball Special Fat Bike Race!
