Sun Valley Resort’s Winter Wonderland


This year the torchlight Parade on Christmas Eve will take place on Bald Mountain. The Fireworks will still go off from Dollar.

Christmas Eve Ice Show at Lodge Terrace starting at 5:30pm. Torchlight Parade & fireworks will follow. 

Throughout December, the holiday spirit settles over Sun Valley Resort, transforming our Village into a picturesque Winter Wonderland. You can hear it in the melodies sung by the Sun Valley Carolers as they stroll through our European-style Holiday Market stalls, and you can see it sparkle in the ceremoniously lit Christmas Tree. The holiday spirit glows in the torchlights that parade down Dollar Mountain on Christmas Eve and ring out in the fireworks that signal the coming of Christmas Day. From photo-ops with Santa Claus to festive movie nights at the Opera House, experience the timeless magic of the holidays at Sun Valley Resort.
