Fodor's Expert Review Bald Mountain

Sun Valley Mountain

Towering over the small town of Ketchum, the world-famous Bald Mountain ski resort (or “Baldy”) is known for its 3,400 vertical feet of consistent pitch, sunny skies, and celebrity sightings. With one of the more advanced snowmaking systems in North America, five extravagant lodges, and relatively short lines even in peak season (December and January), day passes don’t come cheap. There aren’t many runs that could be considered “green” or “easy,” but novice skiers and snowboarders can head over to the smaller Dollar Mountain, next to the Sun Valley Village, which also has a new terrain park and 22-foot half pipe.
