Join your fun and experienced trip leaders, Dave and Ron, for all the exciting adventures that Sun Valley Resort and the town of Ketchum have for you! We will fly into Hailey, Idaho, giving us a short 12-mile drive to our luxury hotel in Downtown Ketchum.
If you haven’t been to Sun Valley before, get ready! Sun Valley ski resort is frozen in time. Walking into the Sun Valley Lodge and gazing at the photographs of dignitaries and starlets who have graced the resort, it's hard not to feel like you're in a black and white movie. Harkening back to the golden age of the sport, it is the birthplace of the modern ski resort. Sprinkle some balmy weather, absence of crowds, plus a mountain that claims the most consistent pitch in the country, and you have a dream for skiers and boarders.
Sun Valley, America’s oldest purpose-built ski resort, where you can feel the echoes of an era when Hollywood stars, writers, socialites, and European nobility were lured here to ski and play. On December 23, 1936, the Sun Valley Lodge opened for its first winter season, complete with the world’s first chairlift. Railroad tycoon Averell Harriman wanted to develop America’s first grand destination ski resort to promote passenger traffic on his Union Pacific Railroad. After an extensive search, Harriman was ready to give up when he learned of a beautiful corner of the Sawtooth mountains near Ketchum, Idaho. The rest is history…

The Town

Ketchum doesn’t try to be anything other than what it is. It’s not trying to be the next Aspen or Vail. The word most used for Ketchum is “authentic”. It prefers life a little more off the radar. Not to mention, a lot more laid back. That’s not to say it doesn’t have its sophisticated side. It just prefers to keep it hidden under its jeans. More than anything, it lets the mountains do the talking. And what they have to say is heard around the world.
Step out our hotel’s front door and it’s possible to return with armfuls of shopping bags faster than you can say, “We’re gonna need a bigger suitcase.” Really, it’s all that close. And from boutiques to bookstores, it’s all begging you to take it home.
If you are looking to have a quick drink after a long day of meetings, being on the trails, skiing on the mountain; or if you just want to party like a local, hang with friends, experience good food and dancing then you are in the right place. From dive bars to high-end watering holes, all your best options are within blocks of our hotel. No matter where you go, you’ll meet some friendly locals. And as far as we know, none of them have sprouted horns.
If skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, and golfing is first in Ketchum, dining is a close second. It has everything you need to put your hunger in its place. Both Grumpy’s and Lefty’s talk a big burger game, so it’s up to you to crown a winner. The Pioneer is a Ketchum institution for the most prime of rib. Everyone agrees on Enoteca for authentic Italian. And whatever you do, don’t miss lunch at Christina’s.

The Limelight Hotel

With its authentic spirit and sense of community, Ketchum is easy to love. As a result, it is a small town with a big stature among travelers, and the luxury Limelight Hotel felt an obligation to get the important stuff right. So that's why the Lounge has local live music acts, why the hotel was built with sustainability in mind, and why the staff holds Ketchum’s treasures and traditions close to its heart.
The Limelight offers transportation to the ski mountain and around town, a bounteous (included) continental breakfast, and welcoming areas that include an open plaza area with firepits that will give you a new perspective on Ketchum. And that’s just the beginning.
More amenities include two hot tubs and a pool, free WiFi, in-room safes, event spaces, audiovisual systems, ski/snowboard valets/lockers, a 24-hour fitness center, multilingual computer stations, in-room coffee and microwave, and even a coin-operated guest laundry.

The Mountains

Welcome to the birthplace of destination skiing. With 3,400 vertical feet and over 2,000 acres of diverse terrain, Sun Valley offers skiers and riders something special on two distinct mountains. Bald Mountain’s consistent pitch, lack of lift lines, and variety of terrain have earned it a reputation as one of the world’s finest ski mountains. Thirteen chairlifts and 65 unique runs await skiers and riders on both sides of Baldy. Adding to the Baldy adventure are themed Adventure Trails for kids, with 30 acres of gladed terrain for all ability levels. Meanwhile, Dollar Mountain is the perfect place for kids and beginners to build their confidence and features two new high-speed quads, a full-featured terrain park, and the Wundercarpet, an effortless uphill transporter for kids.
