The Wood River Valley offers some diverse
and world-class alpine and nordic skiing opportunities
for skiers of all levels!
World- famous Sun Valley Resort is just 10 miles up the road from Hailey, offering world-class skiing on two mountains (Baldy and Dollar), stunning on-mountain lodges and full-service base facilities at River Run and Warm Springs, just west of Ketchum.
Sun Valley continues to be ranked as one of the top ski resorts in North America, and has a long and illustrious heritage which began in 1936 when the “Grand Dame” (and first) of destination alpine ski resorts in America was created.
Rotarun Ski Area, located two miles west of Hailey, is our closest hill to play on. This small, family-friendly and affordable area offers both gentle and challenging terrain with a rope tow, platter lift and night skiing.
Rotarun is a community owned, non-profit organization run mostly by volunteers and maintains very low lift prices. Annual races include the Arkoosh Cup and Slush Cup races in February, and Hullabaloo Snowboard Race and annual Snow Box Derby in March. If you are looking for a very special, family-oriented skiing and boarding hill, look no further…you have found it.
Soldier Mountain Ski Area is located 40 miles west of Hailey near Fairfield, Idaho, and offers great skiing, snowboarding for the novice to expert, including fantastic snowcat powder skiing in open bowls.
