Sun Valley Resort has excellent snow, a wide variety of runs, a good balance of groomed runs and ungroomed areas, an effective lift system and, best of all, few if any lift lines. It is cold enough to keep the snow in good shape but not as cold as may other well-known resorts. Lift tickets are $115 per day for... More

When skiing several days be sure to use the overnight ski/boot storage area located at the base. That way you don't need to carry skis or walk around in ski boots when you come off the mountain. The price is reasonable and the staff are friendly. Cost is $4.00 for skis and another $4.00 for boots. Well worth it.

Sun Valley is a great mountain. The vibe is much more laid back than other mountains because the clientele is generally older and wealthier. As a result, if you are a die-hard storm rider or tree skier, you can have the entire mountain to yourself on a snowy day. The mountain rides as if it is double its actual size.... More

The groom was easily skied off. In my opinion this is due to excessive snowmaking. Most years snowmaking is a necessary evil as Baldy does not receive an abundance of snow but I think this year mother nature has been kind but the resort is still snowmaking and it is ruining what I think would be a much better skiing...

If you are looking for a fun and memorable lifetime experience, this is the place. We visited The Lodge during the summer of 1997. It was breathtaking and we always talked about going back for a winter vacation. We arrived on Christmas Day and returned on New Year's Day. It was like celebrating a white Christmas all week. The amenities... More

I absolutely love Sun Valley and have been vacationing there since childhood. It's so fun to take my kids to the same condo where I vacationed as a kid. We stay at Elkhorn in Sun Valley. The grounds are so beautiful and an activity in themselves to take a walk, bike ride, or sit by the ponds. I don't golf,... More

The recently renovated Lodge is stately and up to date. The renovations have made the hotel comfortable and luxurious. The spa is excellent with an outdoor pool heated to 100 degrees making taking a dip very enjoyable. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Great service from all the staff we encountered made our stay a real pleasure. There are... More

This is a great mountain with challenges for all skier types. They have incredible snow making equipment that is head by amazing crew that understand how to make excellent snow. It is never crowded and the people are amazing. It is not easy to get to Sun Valley which makes it that much better.
