Sun Valley Resort, ID, announced the availability of its annual season pass offerings and renewed pass partnerships with Ikon Pass and The Mountain Collective for the 23/24 season. These partnerships will continue to create additional benefits for Sun Valley Resort Annual Pass Holders and allow access to Sun Valley’s expanded terrain for Ikon Pass and Mountain Collective Pass Holders.
“We’re making a massive investment in the skier and rider experience at Sun Valley Resort this summer with the Warm Springs Enhancement Plan, which includes new lifts, new terrain and additional snowmaking coverage. Our guests will be blown away by the change,” said Pete Sonntag, General Manager and Vice President of Sun Valley Resort. “There has never been a better time to come visit us, and we can’t wait to welcome Sun Valley Resort, Ikon and Mountain Collective pass holders for the upcoming season.”
In 2023 Sun Valley Resort is continuing on the multi-year Warm Springs Enhancement Plan, including two new lifts that anticipate being open by the winter 2023-24 season to replace and realign the Challenger Chairlift, construct the new Flying Squirrel Chairlift replacement, and extend the Flying Squirrel trail and snowmaking. New gladed terrain, along with Sunrise Expansion and many other areas on the mountain, are the result of the Bald Mountain Stewardship Project, a partnership with land and environmental agencies to improve overall forest health and decrease fire risk on Bald Mountain.
Sun Valley Resort remains independently owned and operated and is a three-peat winner of Top Ski Resort in the West from SKI Magazine’s revered Annual Ski Resort Awards. The year-round destination resort claimed the title for the third consecutive year after clinching top spots in the categories of No. 1 in the West for Overall Satisfaction, Lifts, Dining, and Local Flavor. Sun Valley Resort also ranked highly in the categories of Grooming, Guest Services, Lodging, Apres, Nightlife, and Family Friendly.
