Skiing & Snowboarding

Sun Valley is the nation's first destination ski resort, home to world class downhill skiing and snowboarding on one of the sport's largest and most consistently fall line-pitched mountains. Acres of wide open terrain, glades, and fast steep runs are serviced by top to bottom high speed quads and the Roundhouse Express Gondola on Baldy.  With the world's largest automated snowmaking system and highest per hour lift capacity per skier anywhere on earth you can be guaranteed a fresh carpet of manicured snow and no crowds or lift lines nearly every day of the season.  You'll get more quality skiing and boarding before lunch here than you will over an entire vacation at most other resorts.

They named it Sun Valley for its 250 days of blue bird skies and sunshine a year. With cold, dry snow get ready for the best days on the mountain in your life. Recognized as the #4 Best Ski Area in the West by Ski Magazine and #2 Best Ski Destination in the US by USA Today it will take but a visit to experience what the people in the know are raving about.

Park and Pipe Paradise

Sun Valley has two ski mountains, Baldy and Dollar.  Dollar has been developed into a one-of-a-kind playground for skiers and boarders.  With its innovative progression park, a series of terrain features and rails parks which go from beginner to intermediate to advanced, Dollar Park facilitates athlete progression in a fully considered environment. It is also home to the longest 22' SuperPipe on the continent complimented by some of the largest features anywhere.

Learn To Ski or Snowboard

Sliding on snow is one of the most soul satisfying feelings a person can experience, and in Sun Valley we know a good learning experience is the critical first step.  Being the first destination ski resort in the country founded on the principle of bringing people to skiing and snowboarding, the Sun Valley SnowSports School has taught nearly every type of man, woman, and child how to ski or snowboard. On both mountains you will find terrain suited for all ranges of ability from the beginner to the advanced skier or rider. Dollar Mountain is ideal for kids and parents with a gentle, treeless mountain separated from faster skiers and boarders and a first class day lodge.  It's an ideal place to start that will have you and your younger ones hooked on snowsports for life.
