Sun Valley ID

Sun Valley ID

There are a lot of great ski resorts in the United States, but none can match Sun Valley’s rich winter sports history – this was literally the nation’s first destination ski resort, with the world’s first chairlifts, where the very idea of the American ski vacation was born. Sun Valley changed the paradigm, and immediately became a hot spot for the biggest celebrities, the most important VIPs, and the world’s best skiers (and later snowboarders), and they have all been coming back ever since.
