A great time to visit SunValley is Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall! I've enjoyed the Sun Valley resort in all seasons because I lived less than 15 minutes away. The staff are always friendly and provide great service. A few months ago I moved 2,000 miles away to another ski resort but know I'll return for a visit before long!

So many other resorts give you easy access to their local mountains- I would not give SV high marks for that one.

We just returned from Sun Valley and 5 days at their Jazz Jamboree. The music was wonderful and we had a great time. All you Jazz lovers should put this on your list of must attend. The variety of music was great as it not only included jazz but also big band and the Whiffenpoofs from Yale University (They were... More

We had the opportunity to stay at the Resort for the Hispanic Youth Symposium. It's such a beautiful place! I absolutely loved it. Hope to return again!

We took the tram and hiked some on the ski mountain. This is just cool mountain town. Reminded us of Telluride. The skiing is split up among three mountains. The rich area has lifts but they are more for beginners.

Sun Valley is a long standing standard in comfort and casual resorts. I've been coming here for years, but this time, while visiting with a parent who is using a wheelchair, I noticed how many places are still not ADA compliant. I found no ramps in several places, narrow and inaccessible restrooms, and difficult entrances without door openers. Plush surroundings... More

The best kept secret is the summer. The summer concerts series begins the end of July and is pretty much every night. It only last about an hour so either go out and enjoy a picnic or make a 7:45 dinner reservation. We enjoy going early, taking a blanket and chairs and a picnic from Louise's (fried chicken on Wednesdays... More

From Whistler, to Grand Targhee: From Telluride to Solitude, Chamonix....and on and on. Sun Valley is the one I remember. It's an old resort, but the sun, the runs, and the old town of Hailey always make me want to come back. My best ski memory is a long day on the runs, and then pitchers of Dos Equis on... More
