Fun in the Not So Much Sun
Great resort that lives up to its claims- long runs, great vertical, no lift lines- ever- etc. We had terrible weather the last three days but didn't let it ruin the trip. Mountain is not as easy as some (Big Sky) and not as hard as others (Jackson Hole). The lodges are nice and the food is decent for lodge fair - I would not say it is the greatest like some of the claims but its better than most on the east coast. The Sun Valley Lodge area is not much in the way of restaurants/shops so I would recommend staying closer to the town of Ketchum and getting the shuttle to the mountains. Seattle Ridge and the Roundhouse were the best for food and views. River Run had a great après ski scene at the end of the day. Warm Springs smells like sulfur so I would avoid staying over there.
