Welcome to the birthplace of destination skiing. With more than 3,400 vertical feet and over 2,500 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. Thirteen chairlifts and 65 varied runs await skiers and boarders on both sides of Baldy. Adding to the Baldy adventure are themed Adventure Trails for kids, with 30 acres of glade ski and boarding terrain for all. Meanwhile, Dollar Mountain is the perfect place to get introduced to downhill sports and features two new high-speed quads, a full-featured terrain park with 76 rails and the Wundercarpet, an effortless uphill transporter.

    Foxy Forest

    The Foxy Forest trail offers an extended trail experience for the more accomplished young skier/rider. Named 'Foxy' referring to the Red Fox, indigenous to this particular part of Bald Mountain… A foxy adventure is sure to be had as young skiers/riders descend a serpentine path through a lightly forested area adjacent to the Upper Can Can Ski Run. The Foxy adventurer can expect to experience an exciting and fun filled tour.

    The Flume

    The Flume adventure trail offers an exciting and fun filled descent through a natural 'flume-like' path, a 'swale', naturally carved into the terrain. The Flume trail reminds us of the rich mining history of the Wood River Valley during the late 1800's. The trail is named after the Guyer Hot Springs Flume, a man-made trough that carried timber from Warm Springs logging sites to Frenchman's, stoking the furnaces in the Philadelphia Smelter at the confluence of the Big Wood River and Warm Springs Creek. The Flume adventure is for the most accomplished rider/skiers, and offers the excitement of a flume ride as it twists and turns, descending into Frenchman's.

    The Red-Headed Wood Pecker

    The Red-Headed Wood Pecker trail is a fun and exciting tour though a large stand of Lodge Pole Pines, the beautiful habitat of the Pileated Woodpecker, a majestic creature indigenous to Bald Mountain. Standing more than 24 inches tall, this incredible bird ushers the young adventurer through a winding path with a distinct forested feel. The Red-Headed Woodpecker trail is a great way for kids to explore our wooded mountain areas and maybe see a Red-Headed Woodpecker or two.
