Sun Valley, the mountain resort city located in Blaine County, is generally used to describe the region surrounding the city, including the neighboring cities of Ketchum and the Wood River Valley area, winding all the way south to include Hailey and Bellevue.

The city shares the same story as many mountain communities in Idaho, beginning as a hardened mining town. By the 20th century, mining was on the decline in southern Idaho, and cities would become ghost towns; Blaine County, however, managed to stick around mostly thanks to its livestock industry.

By the 1940s, tourism has arrived in Blaine County with the opening of the Sun Valley Resort, attracting the rich and famous from across the country to this slice of glamorous wilderness. Ernest Hemingway was a famous early resident, spending his final days in the area and was eventually buried in the neighboring city of Ketchum.

Today, many celebrities and wealthy business people own first homes in Blaine County – if you’re a part-time resident and want to take advantage of an empty leg charter flight, let one of our Air Charter Advisors know! We can review all of the empty legs based in the area or that are transient through (KSUN) Friedman Memorial, as well as potential one-way routing to offer the best jet charter rates for our clients.

Attractions & Events

Sun Valley is synonymous with destination skiing, and the area offers two incredible mountains for skiers and snowboarders.

Life in the valley revolves around its tourism industry, with skiing taking center stage during the winter, and outdoor activities throughout the Sawtooth National Recreation Area over the summer. The area has a reputation for being openly liberal in a largely conservative state, and while vegan and organic lifestyles may be openly mocked a few miles down the road, you can feel free to indulge in them here.

Bald Mountain has earned its reputation as one of the world’s finest ski mountains, with 13 chairlifts and more than 60 runs. Dollar Mountain is a great place for beginners to introduce themselves to downhill sports. Nordic skiing is also popular for those interested in some of the best cross country skiing in the United States.

Golfers can choose between a round at Trail Creek, a 6,968 yard championship course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., or the Alpine-links style White Cloud course, a scenic nine-hole course offering amazing views of Wood River Valley.

Idaho is known as the Whitewater State, and you can experience the thrill of the rapids through a number of river rafting companies in the area. The state of Idaho is also a major destination for fly-fishing, and there are several walk and wade options nearby, including the Big Wood, Big Lost, Little Wood, Copper Basin, Silver Creek and the headwaters of the Salmon.

There are a couple of important cultural events hosted here as well – the Sun Valley Writers Conference (, a once-a-year gathering in June/July, is where readers and writers come together in the genres of fiction, non-fiction, journalism, poetry and film-making. There’s also the Sun Valley Film Festival (, held in the middle of March, featuring workshops and discussions with filmmakers, live read tables with screenwriters, and the SVFF Lifetime Vision Award, given last year to director Oliver Stone.
