01 Feb February – an Incredible Month to Visit Sun Valley!
February is an incredible month to visit Sun Valley!
First, it’s usually the best snow of the season and second, Sun Valley has it all!
Bald Mountain’s vertical lines, Dollar Mountain’s family-oriented terrain, and limitless backcountry access make these ski resorts top notch.
That is why the area has earned the moniker “the Alps of America.”
You can experience fresh powder turns, amazing mountain vistas, awesome groomed trails, and a remarkable lack of lift lines.
Any Sun Valley ski day inevitably ends in high fives.
Check out some of these Bald Mountain stats:
- Summit: 9,150 ft
- Vertical drop: 3,400 ft
- Base: 5,750 ft
- Skiable Acres: 2,054 acres
- Lifts: 18
- Beginner terrain: 36%

Also, the Friedman Memorial Airport is a mere 20-minute drive from the ski hill.
Those are just a few reasons why Sun Valley should be on your ski & snowboard bucket list this winter.

Strap on a pair of snowshoes – packed trails or blazing your own path, we have both.
Pedal power – don’t let the snow stop you from mountain biking in the winter – grab a fat bike and check out the snow biking trails.
Push and glide – whether you classic or skate ski, the Sun Valley area has many groomed cross country ski trails as well as ample opportunity to cruise through the forest or on scenic loops.
Cast a line – The Big Wood River is open for fishing throughout the winter months. Go it alone or hire a guide from one of the many local fishing shops.
Hit the ice skating rink – test your skills and your spins on Sun Valley’s year-round outdoor ice skating rink. You can also play a friendly game of ice hockey at Christina Potters Ice Rink in downtown Ketchum.
Finally, Winter Season of the Sun Valley Music Festival closes out the month of February on the 27th, 28th, and 29th.
