Ski Magazine just released their 2015 North American Resort Survey and near the top of the list was Sun Valley coming in at 3rd behind resort powerhouses Whistler Blackcomb (1st) and Deer Valley (2nd). This honor comes a year after Sun Valley was ranked #4. Ski Magazine writes, "When visiting Sun Valley, one tends to get caught up in the history (it’s No. 2 in Character), especially when taking a leisurely lunch in the 75-year-old Roundhouse Lodge after a morning of 3,400-foot top-to-bottom cruisers on “fabulous fall-line terrain.” It takes only a little imagination to mentally trade state-of-the-art, liftline-eliminating high- speed lifts (No. 1) for single chairs and direct flights from Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and now Denver for the Union Pacific railroad, and you’ll understand why the rustic yet refined atmosphere of this secluded Idaho gem has beckoned skiers since 1936. It starts with the skiing. When it snows, expect epic sunny bowl skiing off the Mayday lift. The rest of the time, immaculate grooming (No. 2) and the country’s best snowmaking system make Bald Mountain—where chasing fresh corduroy has become cultish—a thrilling place to set an edge." —Kevin Luby
With this kind of endorsement and homage to the past which speaks directly to the present, Sun Valley is an obvious choice for individuals and families looking for a ski experience which offers all of the modern amenities and luxuries without the crowds and hype of most other mountain resorts.
