Sun Valley lift ticket prices rise

Peak-season, single-day ticket will cost $95

Express Staff Writer

A day of skiing or boarding on Bald Mountain will cost an adult anywhere from $62 to $95 this season, an uptick from last year.

Sun Valley Resort has released its single-day lift ticket prices for the value season, regular season and peak season.

Peak season runs from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, and Feb. 18-26.

Regular season is Dec. 17-23, Jan. 2 to Feb. 17, and Feb. 27 to April 1.

Value season prices are in effect from Nov. 25 to Dec. 16, and April 2 through the end of the season.

A full day of peak-season skiing/boarding costs $95 for an adult. During the regular season, that drops to $89. In the value season, it can be had for $62.

Last year, peak-season prices did not rise, remaining for the second consecutive year at $85.

The regular-season price last year for an adult was $83 but dropped to $57 during the value season. Those prices each rose $1 from the year before.

A lift ticket on Dollar Mountain during peak times costs $50 for adults, $39 for kids and $42 for seniors. Regular season prices are $49, $37 and $40, respectively. During the value season, prices are reduced to $34, $30 and $30 in those categories.

Last year, peak-season prices on Dollar for adults were $44, a $2 increase from the year before. Regular-season prices were $42, and value season prices were $30.

Sun Valley Resort is creating a terrain park on Dollar Mountain that will have 20 new rails, a new halfpipe and a new progression park for beginners at the bottom of Dollar Face. A medium-competition park will have two jumps and three rails. On Baldy, themed adventure trails are being designed for skiers and boarders ages 6-12.

Also new for this season will be 30 acres of gladed ski/boarding terrain adjacent to Upper Limelight and Olympic runs, between Olympic Lane and Olympic Ridge, and in Upper and Lower Central Park.
