post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Thinking of taking wife to Sun Valley end of Feb or lst of March.  Never been there.  Can anyone recommend lodging, deals, etc., thinking of 5 night and 3 or 4 days of skiing.  Also recommend restaurants etc., would appreciate.

 

Sun Valley Lodge and/or Inn advertise $129 a night per person includes lift ticket, don't know if that is a real good deal. Probably prefer condo so have kitchen etc.

 

Help Please

Yep.  Skied Tahoe for 37yrs, Chile, Australia, Whistler etc.   Have lived in No. Idaho for 8 seasons and have skied from here: Silver Mt (300times), Lookout Pass (200), 49 Degrees North, Schweitzer, Mt. Spokane, Fernie, Kimberly, Panorama, Whitewater, Red, Big Red Cats, JH, Targhee and Big Sky  BUT  not Sun valley yet.  Do you know the area could use some tips.

North Idaho -- Coeur d'Alene, Sandpoint, Wallace, Kellog, etc. -- to Sun Valley is a seriously nontrivial road trip. North Idaho to Ketchum is probably a little shorter driving time than, say, North Idaho to Seattle, but not by much.  There is this  thing in the way called the Idaho Batholith... You have to go the long ways around it since central Idaho is mostly wilderness.
