Sports & Recreation
Most people associate Sun Valley recreation with world-class skiing, but not every Sun Valley recreational activity requires a lift ticket. The surrounding area supplies visitors with an endless variety of spectacular scenery and sporting diversions. In Sun Valley, you're only limited by your imagination.
Cross-country ski the Harriman Trail, the staging area for the Boulder Mountain Tour, one of the nation's pre-eminent cross-country ski races. Or strap on some snowshoes for a moonlit walk and dinner at one of Galena Lodge’s full moon dinner nights. Take the family on a heli-skiing adventure in the magnificent Sawtooth Mountain range. Or turn a few circles at the legendary Sun Valley Ice Rink, where you might rub shoulders with Olympic skaters.
There are endless opportunities and locations to go hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, or land your first 18-inch Rainbow Trout on the Big Wood River. Book a trip with friends for a guided backcountry ski tour where you’ll overnight in cozy Mongolian-style yurts. With so much to occupy your time, a return trip to Sun Valley will definitely be in order.
