Visited the lodge for a wedding and was impressed by the venue. Beautiful meadow overlooking the mountains a short walk from the actual lodge and road. Easy up hill walk of 10 minutes okay for all ages. The lodge itself is rustic but comfortable. Good food, nice staff and a sizeable parking lot make this an excellent venue for future... More

We drove from Ketchum to this beautiful Lodge with the advice from a gentleman at the local coffee shop. Beautiful drive and found this rustic lodge in a beautiful setting. The food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly. It appeared to be a local hot spot and we could see why.

We had a good time tromping around in our snowshoes. We brought our own gear so payed a $5 fee to use the trails. There are plenty of snowshoe trails to choose from and they're all groomed. But if you like walking in deep snow, you'll have to make your own way. These trails were so used and packed I... More

When staying in Sun Valley, summer or winter, head north 30 miles to the Galena Lodge. In summer, great hiking. In winter, great X-country skiing and snow shoeing. All year round, great food and hospitality. The drive there and beyond to Galena Summit overlooking the Salmon River Valley is beautiful. Use Galena Lodge as a destination or a stop along... More

I love everything about Galena Lodge ~ the charming, old log building, the wonderful soups, the stunning, groomed cross-country ski trails, the friendly staff and volunteers, the cozy yurts (complete with sauna) and the usually sunny, blue-bird days. Two nights ago friends and I were skiing under the full moon. Magical.

Nice place to stop and enjoy the scenery, get warm, have beer, coffee or tea. And grab a bite to eat or go to the little gift shop. We came with a large group. I didn't eat but everyone else had something and they liked the food. Stop and have a look if you are in the area.

we arrived about 10 am from SV, got tickets and headed out onto the ski trails. There are numerous routes, from easy to difficult, and each is clearly signed. Maps are conveniently placed around the course, with over 40KM of trails. We started on an easy, then had lunch, and finished with a blue run. Speaking of lunch, the grilled... More

Delicious lunch with a big deck, and lots of ambiance. The food was so much better than we expected, the lamb burger in particular, sourced from a local farm, with really nice spicy aoli, and a fresh baked bun. My husband and I enjoyed sitting out on the deck after doing some local hiking. All in all a gorgeous drive... More

Let's just start off by saying Galena has some tough nordic trails! That being said, there is great snowshoe trails, and anyone can do that. Take the beautiful drive under the Boulder Mountains and go for a GREAT lunch. Weekends during the winter can be crowded, but don't be afraid to share a table that is being under utilized. We...

Galena Lodge is not a lodge, it is a warming hut, meeting place, and rest stop, with a restaurant and small outdoor store--and it's terrific. The ambiance is perfect: in the dead of winter there is a fire in the fireplace, lots of tables and a few comfy chairs, and great soups to warm you through. Best of all is... More

“We stayed in the Star Yurt. It can sleep eight people, but we had a group of six, and that was the perfect size...I think, with eight people, it may be a bit crowded. It was fun to take a sauna after a moonlight ski.”
