For a unique ski getaway in central Idaho, you may want to consider the bustling resort town of Ketchum. A few hours drive from the capital city of Boise, nestled in the breathtaking Idaho wilderness, and close to both Dollar Mountain and Bald Mountain, Ketchum is a well-known ski destination and hub for outdoor adventure that is worth a visit year-round!
Although this destination is often grouped in with Sun Valley or neighboring Hailey, Ketchum is a bustling small town in its own right. From a ski condo, a cabin in the woods, or a getaway right downtown, you'll love exploring all that this mountain town has to offer when you stay in one of our vacation rentals!
Things to Do in Ketchum
In Ketchum, you can enjoy a leisurely walk to a special dinner out, go art gallery browsing, or spend an afternoon learning about the area at the Ketchum Sun Valley Historical Society Heritage and Ski Museum.
Your getaway to this Idaho mountain town will surely involve skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing if you're here during the winter. Located between Bald Mountain and Dollar Mountain, both Ketchum and the nearby town of historic Sun Valley enjoy world-class snow sports. From your cozy Ketchum ski condo, it's less than a 10-minute drive to area ski resorts - in fact, some of our vacation rentals are even ski in/ski out!
Ketchum in the Summer
The scenic Ketchum/Sun Valley area won't let you down in the summer either! Ride mountain bikes down Bald Mountain (after taking the chair lift up, of course), try fly fishing for your dinner, or hike the Crow Creek Loop / Greenhorn trail. Less than 10 miles outside of town, this diverse loop trail heads through aspen trees, old bridges, and you may even be able to spy some wildlife.
Eating Out in Ketchum
Any time of year, if you don't want to prepare a home-cooked meal in your Ketchum vacation home, you can head out to one of over 60 area restaurants. Quickly becoming a foodie destination, eclectic Ketchum will definitely not disappoint your palate. Local favorite The Kneadery is a must-stop for a pre-ski breakfast or post-hike lunch, with locally baked organic bread, hearty egg dishes, burgers, and salads. Or, for a delicious fix of Italian food, head to by Il Naso for grilled baby octopus, bruschetta, elk chops, and glasses of rich, red chianti.
Winter or summer, and even spring and fall for that matter, you'll thoroughly enjoy a stay at one of our wonderful Ketchum vacation rentals. Come see why this small Idaho town is making such a big fuss as an up-and-coming, year-round outdoor destination!
