"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. In essence, then, Sun Valley is a geographical region that is home to phenomenal mountain scenery, unlimited year-round recreational offerings, and down-to-earth people. All of this makes Sun Valley, whether it's Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue, or elsewhere—one of the most desirable places in the country to live.
Mid-Valley sits halfway between the towns of Ketchum and Hailey. With a more rural feeling, this area has been rapidly growing in the past few years along the east-west roads that meander up through the mountains. Several beautiful high-end subdivisions are newer to the area along with wonderful older Mid-Valley real estate. Mid Valley features access to the Big Wood River as well as gorgeous views of Hyndman Peak up East Fork Canyon and Mahoney Butte up Greenhorn Gulch. "Mid-Valley," says one resident, "embraces all of the high-quality living criteria: lots of space within easy proximity to towns."
