With the all three routes into the Sawtooth Valley blocked by avalanches and windblown snow, with grooming equipment stuck in snowbanks and ski trails impassable, with frequent electrical outages, no food for the banquet and the wolf at the door, the Sawtooth Ski Club has announced the postponement of the 17th annual Sawtooth Ski Festival for one week. This is an unprecedented turn of events but it seemed like the right thing to do. All festivities are being rescheduled for the weekend of March 9th and 10th, same times, same places. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the indomitable, never say die spirit of festival workers was forced to yield, powerless in the face of untamed nature.
