    Sun Valley is a classic ski resort in the state of Idaho, near the city of Ketchum. There are two main mountains in the area where we can go backcountry skiing: Bald Mountain (2790m) and Dollar Mountain (2023m). 

    This was the first resort established in the United States, as well as the first place where a chairlift was installed.

    Join me for a day and let’s explore the best slopes away from the crowds of the resort. The powder is abundant during the season, and the landscapes are truly spectacular.

    We can plan the day in different days. For example, we can go ski touring to explore a remote ridge in the area. Or you can choose to learn or improve your avalanche rescue skills. If you are into ski mountaineering, I can plan an exciting day to test your abilities. Keep in mind that this trip is customizable! I know the area very well, so I can plan the best day for you depending on your wishes.

    You don’t need to have prior backcountry ski experience, but you do need to be in good physical shape and to be an experienced downhill skier. I will take up to 4 people with me. If you are a larger group, a second certified guide will join us.
