Bald Mountain, known as Baldy, is considered a big carving mountain and can be very icy at times unless the snow is very fresh. When you are ready for some challenge, head over to the Upper River Run that is just too steep to groom! If there are freestylers in your crew, they'll be pretty happy about the five terrain parks in Sun Valley and the one superpipe.
For some apres ski action, you’ll want to drive on over to Grumpys in downtown Ketchum. For some nightlife, you can try The Cellar Pub and Whiskey Jacques.
