VENUE & OVERVIEW

#1 Winter Resort Even Non-Skiers Will Love

 

"Sun Valley Resort has been voted the #1 ski resort in North America by SKI Magazine readers two years running. However, this resort offers so much more than the freshly groomed, uncrowded ski slopes for which it is so well known. From luxury accommodations and delectable cuisine offerings to abundant outdoor activities and a world-class spa, everyone in your group can enjoy a perfect vacation at Sun Valley.

 

For the non-skier looking for outdoor adventure or the avid skier who needs a day off to rest their legs, Sun Valley offers bountiful winter outdoor activities that don’t involve a chairlift. The Sun Valley Nordic & Snowshoe Center is home to some amazing snowshoeing trails that offer panoramic views of Sun Valley’s famous Bald Mountain and, with snowshoe rentals readily available, guests of all ages and abilities can strap in and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Looking to get your heart rate a bit more elevated? Try your hand at Nordic skiing. Sun Valley boasts some of the best-groomed trails in the U.S. and offers lessons taught by world-class instructors, some of whom are former Olympians. If you’re looking for a less taxing way to explore the wilderness, don’t miss the whimsical horse-drawn sleigh ride experience! The serene ride showcases some of the best views of Sun Valley’s signature mountains while you snuggle in and sip some hot cocoa.

 

Those hoping for a relaxing day in the mountains need to check out The Spa at Sun Valley. Ranked the #1 spa in Idaho (and #39 in the entire country) by Spas of America, the Spa offers myriad options for pampering yourself. Services include facials, a variety of massages to suit your personal preference or body need, and even cupping and acupuncture to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. To truly treat yourself, make an appointment to get your hair or nails spruced up, and finish it off with a professional makeup application before dinner. Before or after your service, make sure to take advantage of the complimentary sauna access, have a soak in the hot tub, or take a dip in the heated pool.

 

Following a day of luxurious spoiling, join the skiers and snowboarders in your group for a dinner you’ll all be raving about. Sun Valley’s original restaurant, The Ram, has welcomed diners since 1937, just one year after the resort opened its doors to the public in 1936. Although this landmark establishment has received some updates in the decades since its inception, The Ram has retained every ounce of its authentic, elegant ambiance. Indulge in some upscale comfort food classics, like beef tenderloin or their signature Hungarian goulash, and a soul-warming specialty cocktail while listening to the soothing sounds of the baby grand piano. Following dinner, stop by The Chocolate Foundry to satisfy your sweet tooth with some of the world’s finest chocolate-y treats."
