    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.

    Life’s a Picnic at the Sun Valley Music Festival


    A Guide to Picinicing at Sun Valley Music Festival  Written By Madeline Garfolo Photos By Cooper Morton
    As Fall approaches, we look for ways to squeeze every last drop of summer out of these long languid days of August. The Sun Valley Music Festival, running semi-nightly this month, is the perfect way to make the sun-kissed memories you’ll think back to when wintertime rolls around again. The days may be getting shorter, but it never feels that way atop a blanket on the grass with the sound of strings drifting up toward the mountain peaks, and pink sky going on for miles.
