Sun Valley Idaho River Running Guide

Weather for Sun Valley Idaho Forecast

Sun Valley is an affluent resort community in central Idaho adjacent to the city of Ketchum in Blaine County with a population of approximately 1,500. Sun Valley is located 80 miles north of Twin Falls.  Tourists from around the world enjoy its skiing, hiking, ice skating, trail riding, tennis, and more.  Very few of its residents stay there year-round, with many having primary homes in Boise, Twin Falls, or out-of-state. The elevation of Sun Valley is 5920 feet.

The term, "Sun Valley," among skiers, refers to the alpine ski area, which consists of Bald Mountain, the main ski mountain, and Dollar Mountain, which is geared toward novice and lower intermediate skiers. Bald Mountain, or "Baldy," has a summit of 9150 feet and a vertical drop of 3400 feet. With its abundance of constant-pitch terrain, at varying degrees of difficulty, coupled with its substantial vertical drop and absence of wind, Baldy has often been referred to as the best single ski mountain in the world.

The location couldnt be better. Sun Valley is surrounded on all sides by some of the countrys most beautiful terrain. The road through town is a national scenic byway; a major national forest lies to either side; and to the north is the pristine wilderness of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The Smoky and Pioneer Mountains frame the Sun Valley vista, which has been captured by photographers for decades.
