Sun Valley is a special place with plenty of winter sports options.Quad lifts with no ski lines make for packing 2 days of skiing into one. The runs are long. Great runs for intermediate skiiers and plenty of rubs to keep the advanced skiier challenged. Fantastic tree skiing options and bump runs. Sneaking out of bounds into the recent burned area is a real bonus for those who like to ski on the edge. This resort does not have a park although there is half pipe and alot of natural obstacles for jibbing or getting air.
Miles and miles of cross country ski trails an snow shoeing wilderness. Truly a magical place to spend time and just as beautiful in the summer.
