Great skiing and good snow. A run for every level though i summarize it as an intermediate level ski resort all around. Not thrilled with the night life. Don't expect Park City or Whistler bar hopping. Geared around dinners with people who stay long term.

Sun Valley is known for skiing and other winner activities, but it's pleasant in summer as well. My teenaged daughter is a figure skater, and the Sun Valley outdoor and indoor rinks offer lessons, classes, and freestyle. There's a show on Saturday evenings, featuring world champions. We also enjoy a mountain trail ride from the stables that culminates in stunning... More

Rode the gondola. We have very young kids. They had a great time. I would definitely recommend it. Included is also a ride to the very top on the ski lift. Kids must be 3 years old to use the lift, but they can ride the gondola.

We stayed in the Sun Valley Lodge Apartments during the 2nd week of August. They were tastefully done. We had a 3 room unit with 2 separate bed/baths and the main gathering kitchen area also had a bedroom. The apartment was well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay except there is no AC. Fear not there are ceiling... More

We were scared the remodel would ruin the character of this old lodge but it better. More relaxing. The main entry is the same but the inside Libby is still lovely. Lots of comfortable seating. The bar area is more open and not as dark. The bar itself has been moved to far wall. Just as nice. Gretchen's is not... More

Although we had originally booked a condo at Sun Valley for a week in late July, the unit assigned to us turned out to be unbearably hot (check ahead to find out what is and what is NOT air conditioned!). So we shifted to the renowned Lodge in the heart of the resort. Wow! A recent total renovation transformed this... More

Perhaps it was when we came (and the fact that we live in Utah), but the terrain was just okay, and the snow was terrible. We're also not huge fans of glitzy ski resorts (we're more likely to go to local ski areas or more "rustic" areas like Alta). And it was expensive. That said, it does have a sense... More

Love what they have done with the place and that they spent the money to do it. I have been here several times and this has been the best experience of them all. Kids love it too!

We tagged along on a business trip to Sun Valley. This resort has so much to do in the Summer. I had never been to ID before and this was the place to go to leave with a great impression. Bike rides, pools, gondola, white water rafting, horse back riding, ice skating, movies (A Pet's Life when we were there)... More

The skiing is exceptional, and the work the resort has done to maintain the mountains is the best I've seen. Summer has become just as busy - with hiking, mountain biking, fishing and lots of opportunities for activities in town, my favorite - the Sun Valley Symphony. I do think Hemingway was right - best of all, he loved the... More
