There are a lot of great ski resorts in the United States, but none can match Sun Valley’s rich winter sports history - this was literally the nation’s first destination ski resort, with the world’s first chairlifts, where the very idea of the American ski vacation was born

Sun Valley is where the modern-day chairlift was first designed and constructed in late 1936.


Resort Facts and Information:

The alpine ski area consists of Bald Mountain (the main ski mountain adjacent to Ketchum) and Dollar Mountain, (adjacent to Sun Valley). Having over 2,000 ski-able acres with an average snowfall of 300+ inches, and bright, sunny days at comfortable temperatures, (let’s not forget the scenery!) make Sun Valley a dream ski destination.

Bald Mountain, or "Baldy," has a summit of 9,150 ft and a vertical drop of 3,400 ft.  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 one of the better ski mountains in the world offering expert skiers more challenging terrain, including perfectly spaced glades and wide-open bowl skiing. The treeless "Dollar" at 6,638 ft has a moderate vertical drop of 628 ft and is perfect for beginner and intermediate skiers by having some of the best groomers in North America.  Click here for more information:
