Due to the increased risk from the Ross Fork wildfire, Galena Lodge has closed for the 2022 summer season. The Lodge will re-open for winter on Wednesday, November 23.
Galena Lodge is a day-lodge owned by the Blaine County Recreation District (BCRD) on behalf of the community nestled in the heart of the Boulder Mountains 23 miles north of the Sun Valley Resort and Ketchum, Idaho. We’re open daily in the winter and summer seasons serving lunch, special dinners, and operating as home base for cross-country skiers, mountain bikers, and hikers. We offer overnight lodging only in our semi-backcountry yurts.
Galena Lodge is surrounded by a 47-mile non-motorized single track trail network that was created through a partnership between BCRD, Galena Lodge and the Sawtooth NRA. The trails are suited for all users incluing beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers, runners, equestrians and mountain bikers.
In the winter, Galena Lodge provides a warm and inviting home base for skiers and snowshoers to enjoy between forays into the winter wonderland. BCRD maintains and grooms over 50 km of groomed Nordic trails surrounding the lodge and 25 km of packed snowshoe trails.
