America's Best Ski Towns: Ketchum

Courtesy of Sun Valley Resort

Ketchum, ID

The artsy town of Ketchum is 1.5 miles from Sun Valley Resort, built in 1936 with a lift that serves the entire elevation (3,400 vertical feet) on a high-speed quad. The resort also claims the world’s largest automated snowmaking system and a year-round skating rink where Olympians are known to perform. With Ketchum as your home base, dine out at B. Restaurant and Bar, overlooking the mountains from its second-floor deck; at Vintage, with its cozy log cabin ambience; and at Cristina’s Restaurant, where the menu reflects owner Cristina Ceccatelli Cook’s Tuscan childhood. Stop in for a wine tasting at Frenchman’s Gulch Winery, which uses Washington grapes, and take advantage of Sun Valley Gallery Association’s free tours.
