Sun Valley is a resort town in the central part of the U.S. state of Idaho, close to the charming old mining village of Ketchum. Built in the 1930s, Sun Valley was the US’s first luxury, purpose-built winter resort, and the current owners have pumped millions of dollars into the mountain to restore it to state-of-the-art luxury – including lots of high-speed lifts.
Among skiers, the term “Sun Valley” refers to the alpine ski area, which consists of Bald Mountain, the main ski mountain, and Dollar Mountain, which is geared toward novice and lower intermediate skiers. Bald Mountain, or “Baldy,” has a summit of 9150 feet (2789 m) and a vertical drop of 3400 feet (1036 m). With its abundance of constant-pitch terrain, at varying degrees of difficulty, coupled with its substantial vertical drop and absence of wind, Baldy has often been referred to as the best single ski mountain in the world. The treeless “Dollar” at 6638 feet (2023 m) has a moderate vertical drop of 628 feet (191 m).
An excellent European-style shuttle service provides easy access to the slopes and town. Apres-ski features ice skating at an Olympic-class rink, miles of groomed cross-country trails, or welcome relaxation around the fire at one of the resort’s cozy bars.
Sun Valley prides itself on remaining low-key while meeting the highest standards of service and comfort.
The nearest major airport is at Hailey, approx. 30 minutes by shuttle from the ski resort.
