Welcome to Sun Valley
Sun Valley is home to the adventurous. As the site of America’s first destination ski resort, Sun Valley has been a Mecca for skiers and snowboarders for decades. If Nordic skiing is your preference, the area also boasts countless miles of gorgeous, mountain trails. Once the snow melts, the nearby Sawtooth National Forest provides endless opportunities for hiking, camping, and backpacking. Fast-flowing singletrack weaves through the Sun Valley Area, making for a mountain biker's paradise. Road and gravel cyclists can also explore paved bike paths and limitless country roads.
Sun Valley is also a cultural and artistic hub. With more than a dozen galleries, two live theater companies, the lauded Writers' Conference, the Sun Valley Film Festival, free Summer Symphony concerts in the Sun Valley Pavilion, and one of the West’s premier nonprofit arts organizations, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Sun Valley packs an enormous cultural punch for its size.
