Sun Valley Ski Resort includes both Dollar and Bald Mountain. Depending on your experience level you may find yourself on one or the other of these mountains during your stay. In years past, Sun Valley, Idaho was known for excellent skiing and being a great place to star gaze - both the ones overhead at night and the ones who frequented the ski slopes and the restaurants. Among the list of American Ski Resorts, Sun Valley is still at the top of many skiers' list.
- Dollar Mountain (1/3 mile south from the Sun Valley Lodge)
The mountain is known for its treeless terrain and gentle slop. Currently there are 5 lifts on Dollar Mountain: 2 Quads, 1 Triple, 1 Double and 1 Magic Carpet.
- Bald Mountain (1 ½ miles west of Sun Valley Lodge)
Bald Mountain can be accessed at River Run on the south and Warm Springs on the north both adjacent to Ketchum, Idaho. The mountain has a total of 12 lifts, including the new Roundhouse Gondola and 66 varied runs on either side of the mountain. Bald Mountain's seemingly endless runs stretch 2,054 acres to the edges of the Sawtooth National Forest and slide another 3,400 vertical feet, top to bottom.
50 miles southwest of downtown Hailey, Soldier Mountain offers 1150 acres of groomed terrain to satisfy skiers of all levels. Soldier Mountain is also the base for the area’s only snow cat skiing operation.
