SUN VALLEY -- Hundreds of snowboarders and skiers grabbed their gear Thursday morning, for Sun Valley's official opening day on the slopes.

It's finally here, our 78th winter season. We opened today. The whole community is excited. The people are having a great time skiing. We're looking forward to a great year, come and visit us, said Jack Sibbach, Director of Marking & PR at Sun Valley Resort.

Despite very little snow in Southern Idaho, Sun Valley opened three lifts Thursday morning.

The resort continues to make snow and hopes to have more runs and lifts open by this weekend
