San Francisco, and more distantly Chicago and New York City. The elevation

area is served by Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey, approximately 15

Sawtooth National Recreation Area, accessed over Galena Summit on Highway
75, the Sawtooth Scenic Byway.

the term "Sun Valley" refers to the alpine ski area, which consists of
Bald Mountain, the main ski mountain, and Dollar Mountain, which is geared
toward novice and lower intermediate skiers. Bald Mountain, or "Baldy,"
has a summit of 9150 feet (2789 m) and a vertical drop of 3400 feet (1036
m). With its abundance of constant-pitch terrain, at varying degrees of
difficulty, coupled with its substantial vertical drop and absence of wind,
Baldy has often been referred to as the best single ski mountain in the
world. The treeless "Dollar" at 6638 feet (2023m) has a moderate vertical
drop of 628 feet (191 m).
The term "Sun Valley" is
used more generally to speak of the region surrounding the city, including
the neighboring city of Ketchum and the valley area winding south to Hailey.
The region has been a seasonal home to the rich, famous, and powerful,
including Mats Wilander, Walter Annenberg, Adam West, Ernest Hemingway,
Tom Hanks, Steve Miller, Demi Moore, Peter Cetera, Clint Eastwood, Bruce
Willis, Ashton Kutcher, Richard Dreyfuss, Steve Wynn, Mohamed al-Fayed,
Barbara Kent, John Lewis, and Tony Robbins.
