Sun Valley is the name of the world-famous ski resort, as well as the small, European-styled village east of Ketchum. The name also encompasses the 30-mile stretch that is the Wood River Valley, an area filled with towns, rivers, mountains, gulches, campgrounds, and cliffs. Sun Valley is home to phenomenal mountain scenery, unlimited year-round recreational offerings, and down-to-earth people. All of this makes Sun Valley, whether it is Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue, or elsewhere, one of the most desirable places in the country to live.
The thriving mountain town of Ketchum is the heart of the Sun Valley area. Including West Ketchum and some outskirts, this area runs from the base of the world-famous Bald Mountain to the beautiful Big Wood River. The town of Ketchum is bustling with a selection of fine real estate, galleries, gourmet dining, and unique shops. Residents and visitors alike enjoy walking the quaint streets, biking or cross-country skiing the extensive trail system, and fly-fishing along stretches of the Big Wood River.
