The Birthplace of Destination Skiing

Located beneath the rugged peaks of Idaho’s Sawtooth Range, Sun Valley holds the distinction of being the first purpose-built ski resort in the United States, featuring legendary powder and more than 2,000 acres of varied terrain. The thriving town of Ketchum anchors the community and serves as the focal point for dining, nightlife, shopping, and entertainment. Made famous by frequent visitor (and avid fly fisherman) Ernest Hemingway, this slice of alpine heaven features world-class streams, stunning golf courses, and near-endless backcountry to explore by foot or on two wheels.

The winters bring feet of snow—sometimes more than 150 inches each year—to Sun Valley, owing to its distinction as the spot for some of the best skiing in the country.
