Rally Participants

Join us on the slopes of beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho and be a part of the first ever rally style event on snow!  Strategy, not speed, will lead you to victory in this family friendly, all ages, all abilities event. 


Each participant will wear a RFID tag throughout the rally,  9 Orbiter RFID readers (dressed as Sparky the Critter) will be placed at all the lifts on Bald Mountain and rally participants must find the most efficient route to pass all 9 sites. Using a "shot gun" start, participants can begin their rally at any point on the hill and will have 5 hours to reach the FINISH line at Apple's Bar & Grill.


Rally your family, friends and associates to form a team or participate individually. However you choose to participate is all right with us. 


The top 3 rally teams and and top 3 individuals with closest to optimal finish times will receive great prizes from our sponsors. And, since this is a fund raiser, the individual and team raising the most money for the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley will also receive great prizes and a huge THANK YOU.


We are excited to showcase Orbiter's new high tech system that allows us to present the first ever event such as this.  Don't miss the opportunity to be part of this inaugural event.
