Sun Valley Lift Tickets Go Up
SUN VALLEY, Idaho (AP) — Schussing the slopes of Sun Valley’s Bald Mountain will require more cold cash this year, as lift tickets have risen to as much as $99. The Idaho Mountain Express reports a day of snowboarding or skiing between Dec. 22 and Jan. 1 has risen to just shy of $100, up from $95 last year. That’s the most expensive peak-season ticket in Idaho, though it does buy 3,400 vertical feet, at the first U.S. destination resort. By comparison, Schweitzer Mountain in Sandpoint runs $68, while Bogus Basin Mountain Resort above Boise will cost $48 for adults. At Brundage Mountain in McCall, day passes run $57, while nearby Tamarack Resort in Donnelly is $49. And holiday pricing at Silver Mountain in Kellogg along U.S. Interstate 90 in northern Idaho will run $55.
