We played both the Trail Creek Course as well as Elkhorn. Both were fabulous courses. What was unique about Trail Creek is that you could see the Dollar Lift as well as the old ski lift equipment on the course. The weather was warm and...More

We had a wonderful time here and look forward to returning and staying longer. This is a great spot for couples or for families. What a perfect place for a family reunion! So much to do!

Out of all of the ski resorts I've either worked at or visited-summer or winter, Sun Valley offers something that most other western resorts lack: History. Just visiting the resort and seeing the pictures of all who have skied here should be enough to help...More

Getting here takes a little more effort than other destinations but well worth it. Very long runs, very few lift lines and when the snow is not perfect, absolutely the best snowmaking in the country. Dining on Baldy is as good as it gets and...More
