Sun Valley is America's original destination resort, often voted the number one ski resort in the US. Sun Valley is situated across two mountains: Bald Mountain (very sunny slope that’s nearly all downhill) and Dollar Mountain (628 feet of vertical on a treeless slope). Baldy offers expert skiers and snowboarders a variety of challenging bowls and glades off the peak while Dollar Mountain is a beginner's dream with gentle, perfectly groomed slopes.

Sun Valley is serviced by a modern lift infrastructure and a well-designed trail system. The resort has terrain for all ability levels and has 2,154 skiable acres. The summit elevation is 9,150 feet with 3,400 feet of vertical drop. Base elevation is 5,750 feet. The area receives about 220 inches of snowfall per year. There are 121 trails serviced by 18 lifts along with 2 terrain parks, a Super Pipe and Jib Park.

The steepest run is Inhibition, which is 70% or 35 degrees, and the longest run is a total of 3 miles. The slope ratings are 36% beginner, 42% intermediate, 20% advanced and 2% expert. Snowmaking is available on 645 acres, and there are 55 snow guns. Groomed acres sit at 810 with snowmaking on 78% of these acres.

We are staying at the newly remodeled  Sun Valley Inn (hotel rooms).  The Sun Valley Inn opened its doors in 1937 and is still where to stay if you're looking for a welcoming and stylish place to lay your head.  The Inn has gracious European-inspired d├ęcor with the finest fabrics, carpeting and wall coverings. Guests can head to the Ram restaurant for a gourmet bite and sip on a cocktail in the lounge, while the Village Station offers family-friendly food and fun.  An exercise room adjoins the outdoor pool. The Inn offers a tranquil, yet forever timeless, lodging experience in the heart of Sun Valley Village.  With the same charming old-world character that originally inspired its construction in 1937, the Inn is now complete with its own steaming outdoor pool, fitness center, restaurants, lobby bar, and friendly staff.

While the exterior of this historic structure is reminiscent of an Austrian ski chalet, the rooms, convention spaces, and restaurants have been given a modern update.  The Ram Restaurant, The Ram Bar, Village Station (formerly Bald Mountain Pizza), meeting rooms, and 97 guest rooms have been redesigned, restored, and in some cases, completely remodeled.  A new archway has also been constructed, opening up a pedestrian thoroughfare similar to the one that existed in the original 1937 Challenger Inn.

The luxurious rooms are furnished with two queen beds, an in-drawer refrigerator, and a coffee and tea bar.  Warm hues and earth tones create a soothing atmosphere, surrounded by soft light from the custom table lamps and high-efficiency windows.  Enhanced wireless internet and a 55” television will keep us connected during our stay.  The spa-inspired bathrooms have granite countertops, a walk-in shower, and wood accents.
