Sun Valley Heli-Ski guides finally got approval to build a new landing pad 100 feet behind the Sun Valley Gun Club, a more convenient location from which to operate. All that remains is approval from Sun Valley Co.
"The city's approval definitely helps a lot," said Sun Valley Co. Marketing Director Jack Sibbach. "We've been working with the Heli-Ski Guides for months and are not opposed to them using the site. We just need to work out some logistics."
Helicopters have been landing near Trail Creek Road and at Baker Creek, north of Ketchum, until now. The new site is within minutes of the resort's main grounds.
