Embrace winter’s romance with one of our most popular activities: a classic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snowy hills. Sun Valley offers one hour tours that will pass by memorable spots like the Hemingway Memorial and Trail Creek Cabin. For a longer, more memorable night, take the sleigh ride to Trail Creek Cabin for dinner with the family. Round-trip scenic rides are available Fridays and Saturdays (additional offerings during peak season). Private bookings are also available.
Dinner Sleigh Rides
A sleigh ride to Trail Creek Cabin for dinner has traditionally been one of the most memorable and fun Sun Valley winter experiences for the whole family. The sleigh ride to Trail Creek Cabin for dinner is available Wednesdays through Sundays and nightly during Christmas holiday and President’s Week. Private bookings are also available.
The ride lasts about 1/2 hour. Dress should be warm and blankets are provided. Because of the wild popularity of the sleigh/wagon rides to dinner at Trail Creek Cabin, reservations are required.
Sleigh reservations should be made well in advance to ensure availability. Peak season dates are December 15th–January 1st & February 8th–March 5th. Reservations should be made through the Sun Valley Recreation Center: (208) 622-2135.
Weather permitting, sleighs/wagons will run mid-December through March 26, 2017.

It’s the splash that signifies the last gasp of the winter season on Dollar Mountain: the splash of a skier or rider hitting the water in the fun, festive, and festooned Cold Bowl Pond Skim, held this year on April 2. In this wildly popular event, skiers and riders attempt to skim across a wide, deep trench filled with icy cold water and come out on the other side victorious. It’s not easy, but it’s a lot of fun.
The celebration is on on Dollar April 1 and 2...
