About Sun Valley

Sun Valley has long been a destination of the rich and famous but the last few years have brought about a lot of change at the central Idaho resort. While still offering the world-class amenities that have attracted the Hollywood A-listers, a solid effort to up their terrain park game has been highly successful. The program continues to grow with the addition of their new 22-foot superpipe. Dollar Mountain is home to multiple terrain parks, packed with their stock of 78 features as well as jumps both big and small to cater to all abilities.

Outside the park you can head over to Bald Mountain and find plenty of terrain with just under 3,500 feet of vertical and a variety of trees, bowls and bumps. If you’ve got your backcountry legs under you, head into the Sawtooth Mountains just Northwest of the resort for terrific options ranging from mellow trees to serious couloirs and a great system of huts for multi-day trips.

Once you’ve thoroughly exhausted yourself, the authentic western mountain town of Ketchum offers plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry. Check out Whiskey Jacques or The Cellar for drinks and a casual atmosphere. Despite it being a little bit tucked away, Sun Valley is relatively easy to get to. Friedman Memorial Airport is just 14 miles down the road and you can find nonstop flights from major hubs such as Seattle, Los Angeles and Salt Lake City.

On-Hill Tip: "Make sure to keep your eyes out for all the hidden gaps and tranny finders littered throughout the park on Dollar Mountain." - Banks Gilberti

Off-Hill Tip: "When night time hits, make sure you’re shootin’ stick over at the Casino in downtown Ketchum." - Banks Gilberti
