Sun Valley Ski Vacations
Sun Valley is a mecca for athletes, sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts in any
season. Not only is the area famous for its legendary alpine skiing on Bald
Mountain, Sun Valley is also a major center for Nordic sports such as
cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Summer is exciting, too, with miles of
biking and hiking trails in the Wood River Valley, whitewater rafting on the
Salmon and Snake Rivers, and golf courses that deliver spectacular views.
Popular lodging choices include Elkhorn, Ketchum, Sun Valley Resort Village,
With easy skiing on Dollar Mountain and more varied and difficult terrain on
Bald Mountain, Sun Valley provides the full range of skiing experiences. Sun
Valley offers lessons and clinics geared for beginners as well as for
advanced skiers. Accommodations at Sun Valley include basic hotel rooms,
deluxe suites, condominiums, and cottages. Fine and casual dining is
available throughout the Resort, both in the village and at the mountain
lodges. Sun Valley Resort shops offer everything from ski gear to the latest
fashions. Other resort amenities that can be enjoyed during the ski season
are the salon and spa, ice skating, sleigh rides, a movie and opera house,
and a gun club.
Two Fabulous Mountains
Sun Valley is located in South Central Idaho just three hours from Boise in
the Sawtooth Mountain Range.
Since Averell Harriman first put Sun Valley on the map in 1936, the things
that make the area irresistible have remained essentially the same.
The sun shines almost daily on this Old West setting. Small bands of sheep
are driven through Ketchum twice a year. Locals still smile and are glad to
give directions. And the valley continues to be a peaceful refuge for
visitors year after year.
Sun Valley boasts two fabulous mountains: Baldy, considered by serious
skiers as this country's single best ski mountain, and Dollar, a beginner's
paradise with gentle, sunny slopes groomed to perfection.
In the Old West town of Ketchum, just one mile down the road from the Sun
Valley Resort, you'll find a lively community of shops, restaurants, night
spots, art galleries and theater.
Ketchum is best known for its small town friendliness that makes every
visitor feel welcome.
Ketchum Ski Vacations
Best For: Hard-carving skiers and boarders who like playing “spot the movie
The original Rocky Mountain ski resort, Ketchum’s Sun Valley featured the
world’s first chairlift when it opened in 1936 and was long the stomping
ground for classic-era Hollywood. The upscale mountain and its opulent
lodges still carry the grandeur of their pre-war days while the old mining
and sheep town of Ketchum, population 2,689, maintains a rustic elegance,
with gourmet restaurants and steak-and-microbrew saloons in century-old
brick buildings. The resort village of Sun Valley borders Ketchum at the
base of Dollar Mountain, the original ski hill and now an ideal learner’s
area with a ski school, terrain park, and separate, inexpensive lift
The main action for serious skiers and boarders is over at Bald Mountain, on
the other side of town (free shuttle buses available), which features 3,400
vertical feet of some of the finest groomed plunges in the world. If you
like never-ending, perfectly pitched corduroy, this is your mountain.
Snowboarders will appreciate the mountain’s complete lack of flat areas, and
abundant high-speed lifts means no one waits long in line. The resort’s
proximity to exactly zero major population centers means the slopes are
perpetually free of crowds, and top-to-bottom snowmaking means you’ll always
have smooth groomers to carve. Don’t miss the luxurious Seattle Ridge Lodge
atop Bald Mountain's Seattle Ridge, where mesmerizing views span the wild
Pioneer and Sawtooth Mountains and the Woody River Valley below.

Idaho is a state rich in natural wonders and filled with historical significance. Lewis and Clark made their way through these mountains in their mission to open the West. Sacagawea, their American Indian guide, was a Lemhi-Shoshone woman who was born and raised in the area. And, the deep ruts made by thousands of wagon wheels can still be seen along the famed Oregon Trail.
Idaho’s scenic lakes and rivers afford numerous opportunities for canoeing, kayaking and fly fishing. Idaho also boasts the most whitewater river miles of any state in the contiguous U.S.
Thrill seekers can view the ruggedly beautiful landscape from a unique perspective—the sky—on a paragliding, snow-kiting or hot air ballooning adventure. Sightseers who wish to stay closer to the ground can go horseback riding, dog sledding or even take a llama trek.
Sun Valley is the best-known ski resort in Idaho. Bald Mountain boasts 3,400 vertical feet of skiing, 14 lifts, and more than 2,000 acres of skiable terrain. Baldy’s sister mountain, Dollar Mountain, is known as the finest teaching mountain in the world. A single lift ticket grants access to both mountains, and a free local shuttle transports skiers between the two.
