Sun Valley, Idaho – March 2018

Famous for its reliable sunny weather, iconic Sun Valley offers world class skiing for all skiers. Bald Mountain, with a summit of 9,150 feet (2,790 m) and a vertical drop of 3,400 feet (1,035 m) is known for constant-pitch terrain, substantial vertical drop, and absence of wind – ideal for intermediate and advanced skiers. The second mountain, treeless Dollar Mountain, offers inviting runs, ideal for beginning or low intermediate skiers. Dollar has a summit of 6,638 feet (2,023 m) and a moderate vertical drop of 628 feet (191 m). We will be transported to/from the mountains via frequent shuttles which run from the accommodation through the nearby town of Ketchum to the ski base. Transit time is 7-10 minutes.
The historic resort walking village offers skating, shopping, dining, nightly movies (in an opera house dating back to 1937), pools, bowling, and a spa and fitness center all within easy walking distance of our lodging.


The legendary 80-year-old Sun Valley Lodge
– The premier property in the resort, has been reimagined with 108 new guestrooms
– 20,000 square foot destination spas
