I've lived in six ski areas and skiied even more than that and I can say hands down that this area is the top five in the US. I lived here for two seasons (two seasons where we got glorious snow!) and it was fantastic!...More

Certainly much more challenging than Dollar Mountain...not crowded...trails proceed down,down,down with few plateaus...but not very challenging...did not try bowls, likely better areas for those wanting steeper terrain. Small pull wagons available at vehicle drop off point for loading ski gear and transporting to lodge.

It's been a record year (or a near record) for snow in Sun Valley so the skiing has been good. I like the mountain and there are rarely any crowds. Lots and lots of man made snow which makes for a very hard and fast...More

We came here to ski in Sun Valley and loved the snow and conditions. The snow here is very dry which makes for great powder which allows for very fun runs. The views are amazing and there are mountains surrounding the peak in all directions....More

This place in Sun Valley Idaho, rocks! It's a great place to ski, and for some reason it's not "known" like say, Vail, Breckenridge, etc., so it's not as crowded. The skiing is awesome! They have runs that are pretty vertical and steep. It's beautiful,...More

For perfect pitch, no gentle slow down runs and an adrenaline fix, there is nothing like the "Face of Warm Springs". A thigh burner. Do it top to bottom without stopping. Focus on perfectly carved controlled turns or you won't make it. 3,400 of perfect...More

Very steep with long runs ( 3100 vertical feet from top to bottom). Even though the trail map shows some "green" runs- they" ain't green " compared with other similar mountains. Surprisingly, most people on the mountain are skiers - with very few snowboarders. Most...More

Before this I had ridden on lots of logging roads and trails here and there, but this was my first time taking my bike up a ski lift and then downhill riding down - what a thrill! I had some good crashes learning to navigate...More

Our first time here. It snowed, became a blue sky day on Saturday. Snowed a bunch more. Very windy at the top but was sheltered farther down. Sunday and Monday more snow. No crowds, ever. Fabulous, fabulous facilities.
