Scout tips

  • Ski storage lockers are available mountainside so you don't need to bring your gear back and forth each day
  • The service in Gretchen's can be a little slow when they are busy
  • Good range of rooms and suites to suit both couples and families
  • The Duchin Room no longer offers live music and dancing as it did in years gone by


Sun Valley Lodge is something of an institution in this region thanks to its 80 year history, charming interiors and past celebrity guests. It has recently undergone a remodel which has allowed the rooms to be updated with more modern interiors while trying to retain classic touches throughout. Long-standing return visitors may be saddened to hear of the loss of live music and dancing in The Duchin Room but first-time travelers will be astounded by the world-class spa, spacious bedrooms and the wealth of entertainment facilities on-site. 

Scout loves the sense of history at Sun Valley Lodge. It can take 20 minutes just to walk down each corridor as you admire the historic photos of the visitors and parties at the Lodge with Hollywood glamour mixing and mingling with presidents and other celebrities. Fortunately the Duchin Room still feels like a throw-back to those days and is the place to be in the afternoon and evening - the martinis are hard to beat.

A range of rooms and suites are available at Sun Valley Lodge which welcome both couples and families. Most rooms include king beds or two queens, with the option of using a fold-out bed in the lounge area. Rooms here also include all standard hotel facilities and a daily housekeeping service is provided.

The spa at Sun Valley Lodge is reason alone to visit, with a huge outdoor pool (with a poolside beverage service), hot tubs, spa treatments, yoga classes and a fitness suite available. If you're not a spa kind of person, why not enjoy the recreation facilities available such as arcade games, fussball and the bowling alley. Right outside of Sun Valley Lodge is the year-round ice skating rink where you can have lessons or just enjoy skating round in your own time.

Sun Valley Lodge guests have access to both Baldy and Dollar Mountains via the free shuttle service so you can choose the ski runs that suit your level.
