Closing April 17 2016 for the season InIdaho offers highly discounted lift tickets as part of ski and stay packages for Sun Valley.
Sun Valley is full of world class services and skiing. Since 1936, skiers from all over the world have been saying that Sun Valley is definitely worth the trip. There are two ski mountains located in the Sun Valley area Bald Mountain and Dollar Mountain. Bald Mountain is the main ski mountain in the area and offers 65 varied runs. Offering 13 runs and 628 feet of supportive, nurturing vertical rise, Dollar Mountain is a wonderful mountain for skiers and boarders to learn on.

Bald Mountain can be accessed at River Run on the south and Warm Springs on the north. During the winter, finely appointed day lodges, a total of 14 lifts and 65 varied runs await on either side of the mountain. Bald Mountain's seemingly endless runs stretch 2,054 acres to the edges of the Sawtooth National Forest and slide another 3,400 vertical feet, top to bottom. During the summer, the world famous mountain is open to sightseers and adventurers, whether you want a relaxing day among the wildflowers, or a challenging journey through the rugged beauty of Idaho's wilderness. Baldy, as it is affectionately called, offers nearly 28 miles of hiking and biking trails. Feel free to tackle the trails yourself, or take along one of many expert guides to point out all the little things that make the Bald Mountain experience so unique.

The most difficult runs, Olympic and Exhibition, are countered by an easier Olympic Ridge and Olympic Lane. From the top, intermediate skiers can choose Cutoff or Blue Grouse to Mid River Run to get back to the River Run Lift. From there it is a nine-minute lift ride back to the top. Advanced skiers can tackle the Rock Garden, Exhibition or Upper Holiday runs for moguls galore. Seattle Ridge Seattle Ridge Lodge overlooks all runs designated as slow skiing areas with the exception of the difficult Firetrail. Seattle Ridge runs are well groomed and served by the Seattle Ridge chairlift, a five minute ride from the bottom of the ridge back to the top. The Bowls The Bowls along the top of Bald Mountain range in difficulty from easiest (Broadway Face) to most difficult (Little Easter Bowl). Intermediate skiers can begin at the left of the mountain and move to the right as they feel more comfortable. The Bowls are easily served by the Mayday chairlift, a seven minute ride back to the top. Warm Springs Warm Springs, named for the warm bubbling water at the base of the lift, is a great area of the mountain for the intermediate skier who needs a little more time to move on to the advanced stage. Filled with more difficult runs, Warm Springs glows in the afternoon sunshine. The top of the area is home to Warm Springs Face and most difficult runs International and Limelight. Halfway down, skiers can decide which of the more difficult runs they want to venture on ranging from Brick's Island to Cozy. Half Pipe The ski and snowboard half-pipe is located on the skier's left side of Lower Warm Springs, below Race Arena. The u-shaped terrain features are about 400 feet in length, 40 feet wide, with walls about 12 feet high.. View Dollar Mountain Statistics

About seven to ten blocks to the west of downtown Ketchum, is the eastern base area of Bald Mountain.

Warm Springs: top The other base area of Bald Mountain is Warm Springs. Located on the northern side of Bald Mountain, Warm Springs is about two miles northwest of downtown Ketchum. The Warm Springs area has a lot of condominium and home options available. In general, the lodging accommodations in Warm Springs are closer to the lifts than in River Run.

"I rode the Bald Mountain gondola as a foot passenger to enjoy a lunch reservation at the Round House Restaurant at 7,700 ft. on the mountain. It was a beautiful day and the views from the Roundhouse were beautiful, although I had been hoping for more snow. This was a dry year, but most of the ski lifts were running. The food at the Round House was very good, but I thought the price was a little high. The service was good and the drinks at the cozy bar were worth the wait for the restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation as this is a very busy place."

"This is a revue of the Spa at Sun Valley Lodge. I made direct reservations with the spa, the week prior to arriving at my conference at the Sun Valley inn. The spa is well laid out and nice and quiet. I had a massage, facial and manicure over 2 days and I luxuriated in the attention. I thought the prices were fair and comparable to prices at other nice resorts. There is also a very nice heated, outdoor pool attached to the spa facility. Any guest is welcome to use the pool. The Spa is getting ready for a renovation and the services will move to a new facility for the coming months. All services will be available."
