Boulder Mountain Tour - Sun Valley, Idaho

BMT Full (34 km) & BMT Half (15 km):

Overnight lows of 28F with race-time temperatures in the 30-34 F range.

Snow falling Friday overnight and on race day, turning to possible rain at lower elevations. Hard to predict where the snow/rain elevation line will be, but be prepared for wet conditions.

Course snow conditions are excellent with complete coverage (possibly the best skiing conditions in the West right now!).
