Ketchum Travel Guide

Why? As Sun Valley is happy to remind visitors, there is only one original. The first American ski destination offers a mix of sophistication, with downtown Ketchum's galleries, craft shows, boutiques and restaurants, and outdoor adventure. Where else can visitors have a massage at the Sun Valley Salon and Day Spa, then hit the potato bar up the road at the Warm Springs Lodge?

When? Sun Valley and Ketchum are unparalleled in the world of winter sports. In fact, many Olympic athletes have trained there. Visitors can spend a day mushing a pack of huskies, snowmobiling through the backcountry, ice skating or heli-skiing, then warm up with a dip in the natural hot springs.

Who for? Sun Valley and Ketchum are paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, particularly those who enjoy flying down mountainsides on skis or snowboards. But those in search of less snowy pursuits will not be disappointed. Visitors can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, canoeing and golf. With its alpine lakes and canyon streams, the area is also a top destination for fly-fishermen.
