Visitor Reviews of Sun Valley

DG from United States writes:

SV doesn't get the high volume of snow like a lot of western US resorts (think Alta and Snowbird) but it does get sufficient snow and it's usually very high quality, light and dry. The resort also makes extremely high quality snow and does a tremendous job with piste maintenance and grooming. All facilities are first class. Scenery is very similar to the Kitzbuhel area in Austria. Great above tree line bowls and excellent tree skiing if you know where to go. Great vertical. Truly 3,000+ feet of sustained pitch top to bottom unlike just about anywhere else in the world I have skied. No real sphincter puckering steeps but sustained pitch more than makes up for it. The remote nature of the area is a great dirt filter. Zero crowds. First class lift infrastructure. Town is classic with lots of high end and funky places to eat and drink. Not a huge apres ski scene. If that's your deal head to Europe; I would suggest Zermatt or St. Anton or go to Whistler. Great ski school but limited beginner pistes. For pure skiing though, hard to beat this classic resort.
