Skiers can also cut loose on their own in the backcountry powder, or experience a guided tour via snow cat or helicopter.
Not every Sun Valley winter activity requires a lift ticket. The surrounding area supplies visitors with an endless variety of spectacular scenery and sporting diversions.

With so much to occupy your time, a return trip to Sun Valley will definitely be in order.
