BACKGROUND OF IDAHO

Sun Valley's rich winter sports history - this was literally the nation’s first destination ski resort, with the world’s first chairlifts, where the very idea of the American ski vacation was born. Sun Valley changed the paradigm, and immediately became a hot spot for the biggest celebrities, the most important VIPs, and the world’s best skiers and they have all been coming back ever since.

Location:  Located in central Idaho, Sun Valley Resort shares the town of Ketchum in the Wood River Valley at 5,800 feet.  177 miles east of Boise, Idaho and just 14 miles from Hailey's Friedman Memorial Airport.
