Summer Fun Under The Valley Sun
Long comfortable days, cool star-bright nights, and mountain air so clear you can see forever! Summer in Sun Valley is an unforgettable experience, where activities abound, and every day is filled to overflowing.
Ride the lift up Bald Mountain and hike down--or take your bike to the top for a fast and fun descent. Pack a lunch from our deli or enjoy the BBQ at Roundhouse! Bat the ball around for a few sets of tennis, then take a dip in our Olympic pool--perhaps you'll do 72 laps for a mile-high-mile!
Or maybe our trails beckon and your morning hike on Proctor Mountain (see the world's first ski lift) will be followed by a family horseback ride up Dollar Mountain in the afternoon. But only if you put off testing your marksmanship skills at Gun Club.
