Sun Valley is an original. No where else can combine the fantastic world of skiing with such high style and sophistication. Sun Valley uses it's Idaho address to keep itself private, unspoiled, and fantastically hip. The resort attracts low key celebs such as Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood. Skiing here is an intermediate paradise offering good solid cruising runs and amazing views from the plush mountain restaurants. Experts have a few choices to explore, but the beauty of Sun Valley is that everyone can ski it. Beginners also have a great option of skiing at Dollar Mountain, a smaller area just down the road from the main resort. It's the perfect spot for lessons or simply getting your ski legs on your first day.

The nightlife is excellent. You can party the night away listening to live music at Whiskey Jacques or have a gourmet meal at any of the restaurants in the charming old west town of Ketchum, just a mile away from the slopes and Sun Valley Resort. There are plenty of ways to eat, drink, and be merry and just as many ways to work off the excess. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, or simply walking amongst the shops and art galleries in town will open up the best of Sun Valley to you.

Sun Valley has the sophistication of Aspen without the glitz; the quality of Vail without the high prices; the all-round appeal of Steamboat with added charm.
