Passes & 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.

    Sun Valley Guest Perks


    0

    From the time you land until the time you leave, staying in Sun Valley Village comes with several unique experiences that can only be offered by the resort.

    It would be enough to stay in Sun Valley’s storied lodge, built by the famed architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood. After all, this is where America’s destination ski experience began. And the magic lives on in the Sun Valley Lodge and the former Challenger Inn, both recently restored and endowed with the plush amenities of the 21st century.

    But staying at Sun Valley Resort brings with it extra perks, as well.
