We spent the week between Christmas and New Year's at Bald Mountain. We had a great experience. Lift tickets and meals were pricier than our usual spots in the east, but the skiing was excellent. A little risky going this early, but we got lucky because Sun Valley is having a record-breaking snowfall year. Even so, we only saw lift lines one day out of 4.
One warning -- all the trails are one level harder than what we've been used to. Green is more like blue, blue is more like black, etc. If you need true beginner trails, there is only one on Baldy.
