Sun Valley Events

Sun Valley is a resort city located in central Idaho at an elevation of 5,945 feet, encompassing two alpine ski areas: Bald Mountain and Dollar Mountain. Sun Valley is famous for world-class skiing, hiking, fishing and biking. More than 30 miles of paved, car-free bike paths wind throughout downtown and are accessible to families and bikers of all ages and skill levels.

Bald Mountain offers gondola-accessible singletrack for mountain bikers and hikers alike. Sun Valley Lake provides an escape from the heat and offers paddleboat rentals just a short walk from the famous Sun Valley Lodge. After an exhilarating day on the mountain or a lazy day at the beach, visitors can take in a show at the Sun Valley Pavilion, which hosts concerts throughout the summer. Other activities include horseback riding, fly fishing and golf.
