The Baldy Hill Climb
The Baldy Hill Climb is the last weekend in September annually.
This year, the BHC is taking place Saturday September 28th, 2019.
See you there!
The Baldy Hill Climb, hosted by the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, is an annual 1.9 mile, gut-wrenching, uphill climb in Sun Valley, Idaho. Hundreds of athletes from a variety of backgrounds compete against one another to be crowned King/Queen of the mountain by climbing 3,200 vertical feet in 1.9 miles to the top of Bald Mountain in Sun Valley, Idaho. Beginning from the bottom of Bald Mtn., the primary ski mountain of the Sun Valley Resort, racers climb their way straight up the face to reach the summit of the steep ski hill.
The Baldy Hill Climb consists of 5 different categories that cater to every individual, from kids to sports enthusiasts to Olympians. Whether you are a competitive, world-class athlete or just looking to push your body, the Baldy Hill Climb offers something spectacular for everyone.
The Kinder Climb: A Fun Event Climb for Kids. FREE. Typical Time 7 to 8 minutes
The Baldy Hiking Climb: Participatory event for those not wanting to compete: climb Baldy up the Warm Springs side before the racing class start so you are at the top to watch the action. No awards.
The Baldy Racing Climb: Competitive hill climb race up the Warm Springs side of Baldy.
The Baldy Mtn Bike Hill Climb: A mountain bike hill climb for all that starts at St. Lukes Hospital and ascends Baldy via the Cold Springs mountain bike trail.
The Cheeso Double: Combines first the Mtn Bike Hill Climb then the Baldy Racing Climb. Not for the faint of heart!!
The Cheeso Double is named in honor of Craig Kjesbo, a long time Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation coach. He lived life to the fullest and loved climbing all of the area peaks both in the summer and winter.
