Sun Valley is rightfully known for consistent, perfect vertical on our slopes; the best cross country skiing in the country; hiking and mountain biking and rock climbing. But Sun Valley is also famous for its thriving arts scene. Local galleries feature top artists that draw collectors from near and far. Renown speakers and performers grace stages and podiums year-round. The calendar is dotted with star-studded film festivals and conferences. The arts scene in this little town in the Idaho mountains offers so much that visitors are often surprised by the breadth and...
Skiing & Riding
One of the best things about skiing is that the runs really never change.
You can carve your favorite line down Warm Springs on Baldy or Sepp’s on Dollar, season after season. There aren’t many joys in life so easy to replicate.
It’s now been almost 80 years since Sun Valley first opened. While the skiers and technology has changed, the mountains have stayed the same, always inviting us back to play and create memories with family and friends we’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Fortunately, the way we pay to play on the mountains has evolved. Waiting in long lines to buy lift tickets from little warming huts is a thing of the past. The best and most affordable way to buy lift tickets, especially for Baldy and Dollar, is to buy them in advance on Sun Valley’s website.
“The cheapest lift tickets are going to be on sunvalley.com, at least seven days in advance and even further in advance for better rates,” Sun Valley Resort’s director of marketing and public relations Jack Sibbach said. “If you can plan ahead, you’ll get the best prices.”
With lift tickets now being sold primarily online, the market for them has become a bit more fluid. And while numerous websites might advertise better deals, no place can beat the source.
Buying lift tickets online or looking for any Stay and Play packages from the resort itself is always going to be the best bargain.
In fact, one of the best deals of the year kicks off the season. Once again, Sun Valley is offering Stay and Ski packages for just $94 per night, per person, based on double occupancy, with kids (15 and under) staying and skiing for free! This special runs from Wednesday, November 25 through Sunday, December 20, 2015. It can sell out, so book one soon. There is also the Stay, Ski and Eat package, which includes Sun Valley’s famous Thanksgiving Buffet.
One of the best deals for skiing or snowboarding Sun Valley this season is to be part of the Mountain Collective. The multi-mountain pass includes discounted skiing and lodging at 12 of the best ski resorts in North America—plus one each in Australia, Japan, Chile and France.
With snow falling early this year and both Baldy and Dollar blanketed in a sea of white, it’s shaping up to be another epic season in Sun Valley. So plan and ahead and shop online for the best deals for lift tickets and Stay and Play packages.
