Check out this great video from Visit Sun Valley about two wildfires and how they shaped the backcountry skiing around Sun Valley, Idaho. The video follows Joe St. Onge, Chief Guide of Sun Valley Trekking. He talks about how a wildfire can at first be shocking and devastating, but in the long term it can create some amazing backcountry terrain. As a local of a place that is susceptible to wildfires, it is best to learn to live with them and adapt accordingly.
