Launch onto the Mountain. Baldy is calling. Enjoy a great bar and food with abundant scenery and a ski shop second to none.

The gondola is a great way to see Ketchum and all of its mountainous surroundings. We recommend a hike up and gondola ride down. The gondola and charilift to the top are free of charge when descending. This way you earn your "schooner" at Grumpy's apre hike!

For all skiers,boarders,hiker,bikers and those who love a great sports bar,fine dining, people watching and more go to River Run Lodge.You might even see some movie stars! It is the base camp for Bald Mt. the greatest ski mountain ever! This mountain has long sustained runs, steep and deep and is not for beginners. If you don't ski you will still have fun shopping, eating,listening to the music and people watching at River Run.

Mt Baldy is one of the greatest ski mountains in the World plus it is very rarely crowded which is a great extra added bonus. River Run Lodge is the closest access to the advanced ski runs from our home but there is also access to great runs on the River Run Lodge side of Baldy Mt. Both lodges are first class facilities and there is free bus service running every 1/2 hour to both lodges accessible by a short walk from our townhouse. If you wish to drive your own vehicle there is ample parking at the River Run Lodge area.

A gorgeous lodge with full bar, restaurant, large outdoor patio, and locker rooms for skiers to stash clothing and equipment. The lodge is large and perfect for events such as weddings. During the summer the lodge hosts many music events. There are great hiking trails and fishing in the river.
There are shops across from the lodge for purchasing ski equipment and clothing.

In recent years they have added the Gondola as well as out door gas fireplace to this side of the mountain. There is always music and a fun time at the end of the day. It's minutes from my condo. Your non-skiiing friends can walk over and meet you for lunch or after skiing.

The starting point for summer and winter activities. Next to the Big Wood River, the River Run Lodge has rental skis, snow boards, mountain bikes, outdoor gear and good food/drink. For the less active, take the gondola to Roundhouse for lunch or dinner and enjoy great views and good food.

A grand ski lodge. A great improvement over those facilities of the fifties and sixties. No more roughing it, all the amenities from the great Sun Valley skiing experience. Impressive architecture and only a preview of similar lodges found on the top of the mountain. Even if you don't ski, visit this lodge. It is a very short walking distance from Westridge. You will be amazed.

The lodges of Sun Valley Company are among the most luxurious and least crowded of any on the slopes of North America. Food is great, the fire warming and the apres ski plenty of fun. And don't forget the lodges at Seattle Ridge & Warm Springs, as well!

This is now my favorite lift to begin skiing.
The Gondola keeps you warm and dry and it is only 10-11 min.s from our house, faster than going to Warm Springs.

It's not as far as it looks - less than 5 minutes away - or you can take the free bus. Ski storage & tuning available so you needn't carry your skis back and forth. Take the first ride up in the morning sun.
