A Skier´s Mountain Comparable To None
If you're looking for the world's best ski mountain, you just may have found it in Baldy.
What makes up a perfect ski day? First a mountain with perfect pitch, consistent vertical from its 9,150 ft. peak down to the 5,750 ft. base. No flats, no plateaus - all downhill on a variety of slopes rated to your liking and ability.
There's a place for crowds but it's not on a pristine ski slope. Sun Valley's lift capacity is 29,717 skiers/riders per hour and the average skier day is only 3,000. Lift service is waiting on you - you're not waiting in long lines.
Sun Valley was aptly named because its brilliant sun shines 80 percent of the ski season in an azur blue sky. After all, it was "winter sports under a summer sun" that put Sun Valley on the map nearly 75 years ago.
And since that time, Sun Valley has continued adding mountain amenities to take the winter vacation to all new heights. New on the scene is the Roundhouse Gondola and launching of the new Dollar Mountain Terrain Park - soon to be another world class act in Sun Valley.
