One of the times that I tried to snowboard, I repear that I was trying, I saw some amazing views, although i was excited and scared of having a bad fall! But I did survive the day; and it was simply one of the greatest experiences there is, there is nothing like feeling connected with the breeze and nature ... and this incredible mountain!
Sun Valley Resort is perhaps the premier winter sports and ski resort in Idaho, but it's also full of fun outdoor and family-friendly activities if you're visiting Idaho in the summertime. The ski resort has a variety of blue, green, and black runs so everyone can have some fun on the slopes, regardless of level. I'd suggest taking the Challenger and Christmas lifts as they each offer a blue, green, and black options. The snowfall isn't the best in the United States but they supplement the ample natural snowfall with artificial snow so you're bound to have great conditions. Nordic and cross-country skiing are also especially popular in Sun Valley and they even have annual festivals to celebrate the sport.
In summer, travelers have a variety of hiking, fishing, ice skating, and golf options to choose from. Honestly, Sun Valley has done a wonderful job of tailoring their activities to a year-round crowd and there's always something to do no matter the time of year.The summer trails, especially those on Bald Mountain, make for superb hiking and mountain biking and the views are just spectacular. After you're done, head down the Sun Valley Club for a refreshing drink in the sunshine.
If you're a fan of skiing or great outdoors in general, I'd happily recommend giving Idaho's Sun Valley Resort a try. It's an especially appropriate place to go if you have kids or are traveling in a group where no everyone's an avid skier. Enjoy!
