Sun Valley is tucked within the mountains of Idaho. The closest airport is in Hailey, the Friedman Memorial Airport – SUN, about 20 minutes from the Sun Valley Resort. In addition to the Friedman Memorial Airport there are several other travel options. Many people prefer to fly to either Boise, Idaho, or Salt Lake City, Utah, and drive to Sun Valley. Each option has advantages and disadvantages.

Ride Sharing: Much like the room-share forum, the ORS has created a ride-share forum to assist with ground transportation expenses. If you are interested in ride-sharing, please visit our online forum. Make sure your post includes your airport, travel dates and arrival/departure times.
