    Sun Valley Guest Perks


    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.
