Sun Valley has placed in the top 5 ranked destinations by SKI Magazine year after year and receives top marks for lifts, service, lodging in Ketchum, down day activities, family activities, charm, and overall satisfaction. For our history buffs, Sun Valley is rich with historical significance. Most notably, Sun Valley was the world’s first resort with a ski lift and the first of the lower 48 to introduce heli-skiing. For the experience seeker, the pace of the resort is “better late than never” and the dress code is always “come as you are”.

While Sun Valley and the town of Ketchum might have a significant history, there is a firm belief here that the present is the best place to be. See for yourself what all of the hype is about and book your next vacation at Sun Valley resort with the Limelight Hotel Ketchum.

What is SKI Magazine?

SKI Magazine offers extensive guides to ski resorts, gear, tutorials, and how-to’s, and provides everything a skier needs to know. The magazine recently released its annual list of top-ranked ski resorts in the west, which includes Sun Valley, where you’ll find the Limelight Hotel Ketchum!

Limelight Hotel Ketchum & Sun Valley Ski Area

The Limelight Hotel Ketchum is located in one of our favorite ski areas, Sun Valley resort. At the resort you’ll find Old World European style merged with the Wild West vibes, making Sun Valley one of the most unique places to vacation and the Limelight Hotel the ideal place to stay.

With two distinct mountains, the slopes themselves provide terrain for a wide range of abilities. Bald Mountain has been called the world’s most perfect ski mountain with consistent pitches from top to bottom. On the other hand, Dollar Mountain offers those just learning to ski, a treeless, sun-filled environment.

Between Baldy, Dollar Mountain, and a recently expanded area for expert and intermediate levels, there is something for everyone. With acres of terrain, combined with a laid-back feel, it is no wonder that Sun Valley holds the reputation of being one of the best resorts, year after year.

Things to Do Year-Round in Sun Valley

Sun Valley in the Winter

In the winter, aside from skiing and boarding, visitors can enjoy riding through town on fat bikes, renting snowmobiles on a sunny day, ice skating with the kids, cross-country skiing through endless backcountry, and the Audi Snowshoe Experience where you’ll be able to test-drive an Audi to the trailhead for your winter hiking adventure. Interested in booking one of these adventures? Find out more about Sun Valley winter activities, by contacting us through or call (855) 441-2250 for further details.

Spring, Summer, and Fall in Sun Valley

Spring is just as packed full of adventure and excitement. Sun Valley celebrates spring with Baldy Bash, an Annual Easter Egg hunt, and Closing Weekend of skiing, where costumes are encouraged while you make your final turns of the season.

The warm days of summer can be enjoyed fly fishing on the abundant, world-class rivers and streams in the area, hiking in the surrounding mountains, and taking in all the views. Looking for a little more?  Experience cycling up the iconic Galena Summit and finish off your weekend with a rushing, white-water rafting adventure.
