Sun Valley

Sun Valley Travel Guide

The holiday destination of Sun Valley opened in 1936 as the first purpose-built ski destination in America, modelled after the renowned ski resorts of Europe. It was quickly christened the 'American Shangri-La' and has been a favourite of Hollywood stars and the glamorous ever since. In spite of its elite status, Sun Valley has a laid-back atmosphere. In keeping with the spirit of Idaho, the focus is on the pristine beauty of the environment and the feats accomplished by athletes and outdoorsmen.Sun Valley is built around Bald Mountain, known affectionately as 'Baldy' and considered by many to be the single best ski mountain in the country. The old stomping ground of Olympians Picabo Street and Reggie Crist boasts something like 3,400 vertical feet (1,036m), 14 lifts and 65 runs on 2,054 skiable acres. The widely varying terrain of 'Baldy' and neighbouring Dollar Mountain means skiers of all levels can hit the slopes. The ski and snowboard school offer clinics for all skill sets and ages. A wide range of accommodation is also available, from romantic retreats to spacious family options, including four mountain lodges, the original and elegant Sun Valley Lodge as well as village condominiums and cottages.
