Sun Valley Recreation

Summer Recreation – The Sun Valley area boasts nearly one million acres of surrounding wilderness and just about as many summer activities. Guests are invited to enjoy the many natural wonders — flyfishing in beautiful Silver Creek, hiking through teeming fields of wildflowers on Bald Mountain, or riding the rapids of the Salmon River. Thirty paved miles of bike trails, and 700 km of dirt trails in the area, award-winning golf courses, a skateboard park and gondola rides to the top of Bald Mountain add a multitude of man-made marvels to Sun Valley's stunning backdrop.

Ski Mountains – The majestic peaks of the Central Idaho Rockies captured the imagination of America's skiing public in the '30s. And these spectacular vistas and seemingly endless runs have kept skiers and snowboarders talking ever since. Skiers can also cut loose on their own in the backcountry powder, or experience a guided tour via snow cat or helicopter.

Winter Recreation – Not every Sun Valley winter activity requires a lift ticket. The surrounding area supplies visitors with an endless variety of spectacular scenery and sporting diversions. Turn a few circles at the famed Sun Valley ice rink, cuddle up in a cozy yurt or hop a horse-drawn sleigh for a hearty dinner at the legendary Trail Creek Cabin. With so much to occupy your time, a return trip to Sun Valley will definitely be in order.
