Sun Valley is a resort city in Blaine County in the central part of the U.S. state of Idaho, adjacent to the city of Ketchum. Tourists from around the world enjoy its skiing, hiking, ice skating, trail riding, tennis, and cycling.
The elevation of Sun Valley (at the Lodge) is 5920 feet (1804 m) above sea level. The area is served by Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey, approximately 15 miles (24 km) south.

Among skiers, the term “Sun Valley” refers to the alpine ski area, which consists of Bald Mountain, the main ski mountain, and Dollar Mountain, which is geared toward novice and lower intermediate skiers. Bald Mountain, or “Baldy,” has a summit of 9150 feet (2789 m) and a vertical drop of 3400 feet (1036 m). With its abundance of constant-pitch terrain, at varying degrees of difficulty, coupled with its substantial vertical drop and absence of wind, Baldy has often been referred to as the best single ski mountain in the world. The treeless “Dollar” at 6638 feet (2023 m) has a moderate vertical drop of 628 feet (191 m).
An excellent European-style shuttle service provides easy access to the slopes and town. Apres-ski features ice skating at an Olympic-class rink, miles of groomed cross-country trails, or welcome relaxation around the fire at one of the resort’s cozy bars.

Sun Valley prides itself on remaining low-key while meeting the highest standards of service and comfort.

SUN VALLEY INN, 3 star

Sun Valley’s second Christmas season was celebrated by the opening of the Challenger Inn in 1937. Renamed the Sun Valley Inn in the early seventies, Sun Valley’s second hotel was inspired by the movie set for Paramount’s “I Met Him In Paris,” filmed near the resort in 1937.

Today, the hotel provides 109 rooms and the resort’s new state of the art Convention Center, and is located in the heart of the Sun Valley Village. Guest rooms are newly remodeled with elaborate and gracious décor appointed with the very finest European fabrics, carpeting and ornate wall coverings, marble baths and a large-screen color television. Dining opportunities at the Inn include the historic Ram restaurant, the new Lobby Lounge serving light fare and cocktails and the family friendly Bald Mountain Pizza and Pasta. An exercise room adjoins the outdoor glass-enclosed swimming pool. A laundry room with self-service washers and dryers is also available.
