Lift Tickets

    Winter Lift Tickets

    Welcome to the birthplace of destination skiing. With more than 3,400 vertical feet and over 2,000 acres of varied terrain, Sun Valley offers skiers and boarders something special on not just one mountain, but two. Bald Mountain’s consistent pitch, lack of lift lines and variety of terrain have earned it a reputation as one of the world’s finest ski mountains. Seventeen chairlifts and 105 varied runs await skiers and boarders on both sides of Baldy and Dollar Mountains. Adding to the Baldy adventure are themed Adventure Trails for kids, with 30 acres of glade ski and boarding terrain for all.

    For the best pricing available for your Sun Valley lift tickets, plan ahead and purchase your lift tickets online.

    Online value priced lift tickets are available 7 days in advance of your 1st day or skiing or riding and are non-transferable and non-refundable.

    Just bring your email order confirmation to any Sun Valley lift ticket window at River Run, Warm Springs, Dollar Mountain or the Recreation Office in the Sun Valley Village to pick up your lift tickets.
