It is steep and long and the weather is usually mild. No real terrain park and not a lot of powder days over the season, however north of town in the backcountry is much better. it does not have the fun easy going spirit that other ski resorts have like a previous post has mentioned about all the international workers. This resort is actually a lot of fun in summer, and worth a visit then. Ketchum is a great town which is closer to the mountain then sun valley resort. Not a lot of crazy fun nightlife, but it is nice to relax in the numerous bars/restaurants in Ketchum after being active all day... the best restaurant has to be rickshaw.
