This photography exhibition at the Regional History Museum is from the Jeanne Rodger Lane Center for Regional History’s photo collection. Curated by Nicole Potter, Regional History Museum Librarian, this group of images were selected out of the Union Pacific Photograph Collection to show the means used to entice potential guests into visiting the Sun Valley Resort for some winter recreation. The Union Pacific staff photographers staged photo sessions with Sun Valley employees posing as guests. They staged a wide variety of winter activities, including alpine and nordic skiing, dog sledding, horse drawn sleigh rides, ice skating, and dancing and dining at the resort. The photos were taken across two decades from the forties through the fifties. Their afterlife post marketing materials, was to end up in the Union Pacific Publicity Department photo morgue in Omaha, Nebraska. In 1982, over 500 of the color transparencies were scheduled for disposal. Fortunately they were saved from the landfill at the last minute by Dottie Thomas, a librarian at the Library.
