Held in memory of former Sun Valley Company owner Bill Janss, the Janss Pro-Am Classic has long held the reputation as the “best party on snow.”
Skiers and snowboarders of all abilities join forces with a pro to form a team of six; the squads go head-to-head in a dual giant slalom format on world-famous Bald Mountain. Racing is handicapped to give all participants the opportunity to win, whether they are World Cup racers or recreational skiers.
Did we mention costumes? Each Janss Pro-Am Classic event has a theme, and teams are encouraged to dress up and wear their costumes accordingly – on and off the slope. Prizes are awarded for Best Costume, Fastest Pros, Fastest Amateurs, Fastest Team, Lee Gilman Most Inspirational, Best Crash, and Championship Team.
Off-slope highlights include a hospitality tent at the base of Warm Springs where we serve breakfast and lunch on both race days, a welcoming cocktail party, gala dinner, and après-ski party and barbecue with live music.
