SKI RACING - The history of ski racing in Sun Valley is as rich and as impressive as anyplace in the country. And the future is looking pretty bright, too.
It is as if the slopes of Baldy and Dollar were blessed by the ski gods, Ullr and Skadi, to groom the fastest and strongest skiers and snowboarders to ever ride on snow.
Sun Valley has been home to the best in the alpine sports scene since shortly after inventing the world’s first chairlift back in the 1930s. It’s a tradition that’s staying strong and is proudly on display as Sun Valley hosts events like last weekend’s Junior Freestyle/Freeskiing National Championships and this week’s FIS Western Region Open. - US Alpine Championships | Lodging Specials
ICE SKATING - On the ice, the Sun Valley Outdoor Ice Rink has some of the best views in the valley. Come watch Olympic and world-class skaters — take a lesson, get an autograph or just watch them perform. One of the few year-round outdoor ice rinks in the country, ours is home to the celebrated Sun Valley ice shows. The indoor rink is full-size and is the summer home of the Sun Valley Figure Skating School and open hockey. In winter, the Sun Valley Suns call this rink home, with games every Friday and Saturday night. - Website
DOLLAR MOUNTAIN - If you haven’t been over to Dollar lately, you haven’t seen the transformation that has taken place this season. The mountain has always been a great place to learn to ski and board or to challenge yourself at an exciting terrain park, but this year, the Resort has enhanced many of the features and programs on Dollar to make it a fabulous place for everyone, from tiny tots to shred-ready pros, to play all winter long. - Terrain that Teaches | Sun Valley SnowSports
