Endless sunshine, endless runs Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"Whilst walking across the bridge to the base area at Baldy I glanced into the river and spied a great big moose, about 15 metres away; up to her oxters in freezing water and happy as larry! No-one else batted an eyelid. Sun Valley is that sort of a place: close to nature, very understated and very unspoiled. That’s reflected in the town of Ketchum too where you’ll find bars, restaurants and galleries to rival the best; but it’s the sunny views, the quiet slopes and the genuinely friendly welcome that really made Sun Valley stand out for me."

Dining in Sun Valley

Irving’s Red Hots

The funky red shack that is Irving’s sits at the base of Warm Springs and is about as authentic and cool as it gets – a Sun Valley institution. Serving a range of classic hot dogs, their perennial bestseller is the original dog with ‘the works’ – mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, pickles and peppers. This is Sun Valley street food at its best – unpretentious, simple, well-cooked fare served with a smile and no small measure of flair.

Cellar Pub (open until late)

Serving the best pub food in Ketchum with a superb range of traditional and more original dishes – there will be something to suit every member of your party. Expect world class beer selection, fine wines, sport on TV and a spot-on ambience.

Grumpy’s (open until late)

Now celebrating its 41st year as a wonderfully original and politically incorrect establishment, Grumpy’s is the favourite of locals and tourists alike, and serves the best burgers in town. Expect a unique selection of beer on draft including Grumpy’s pilsner.

Lefty’s Bar & Grill (open until late)

Lefty’s is a family friendly restaurant serving burgers, hoagies, subs, salads and hand cut fries. Expect a nice casual atmosphere where you can catch up with friends whilst sampling one of the 13 draft beer selections or over 30 bottles of beer and wine by the glass. There’s sport on the HDTV, a pool table, a juke box and games for the kids too.

Pioneer Saloon (open until 10pm)

The Pioneer Saloon is a throwback to days gone by. This has a wonderfully authentic old west saloon atmosphere where the main event is beef. If you like steaks that are perfectly aged, tender and flavourful then this is the place to come. Open for dinner until 10pm daily. No reservations. Hard liquor available…
