As Idaho begins reopening to visitors, here is some important information for planning a summer trip to Sun Valley:
Outdoor recreation is in full swing! Golf courses, tennis courts, the bike path, and hiking trails are all open. One of the things we love about this area is plenty of wide open space to explore.
Restaurants are opening back up with limits on inside seating and plenty of space between tables and take out options are available. Spas, salons, bars, theaters and retail stores are open, all with social distancing rules in place. Reservations may be required.
Masks are required in all public areas in Ketchum and Hailey for anyone over 5 years old. Masks are required to cover both nose and mouth, both indoors and outdoors where social distancing is not possible. They are not required for persons eating or drinking at a restaurant or in outdoor public places where there is space for social distancing. This mandate is legally enforceable and violators could face a $100 fine.
Complex Pools and Hot Tubs may or may not open this summer. Pools that are open now might not stay open the entire season. Each HOA will make the decision based on the current recommendations and ability to provide a safe experience. Alpine Lodging does not guarantee pool access, even if a property has a pool listed as an amenity.
Elkhorn Resort Harker Pool is open with reservations required for a maximum of 90 minutes per day. The Elkhorn Village pool, diving board, dressing rooms, sauna, hot tub and children’s pool are closed until further notice.
Sun Valley Inn Pool is open with reservations required. A maximum of five people per group are allowed per pool reservation. Sun Valley Olympic Pool does not accept reservations, but will allow first-come first-served up to a maximum occupancy. The Jacuzzi and kids pool are closed until further notice.
Sunburst Condos has announced that they will not open the pool or hot tub this summer.
Christophe Condos and Greyhawk Condos do have their pools open with extra rules in place.
Group events are limited to 50 people at this time, so the biggest events have been cancelled. However there are many smaller events and outdoor events planned such as live music at Whiskey Jacques’ and the Farmer’s Market each Tuesday.
Our housekeeping department has always been excellent and has very high standards. To protect our guest and employees we are not accepting new reservations without a full day in between departure and the next arrival. This is to make sure we have plenty of time to thoroughly clean and disinfect between guest stays. Please understand that this means late check-outs and early check-ins may not be available this season.
Our New Cancellation Policy makes it easier to plan your vacation:
Full payment will be due 30 days prior to arrival. There is no charge for cancellations made more than 30 days before arrival. Cancellations made 30 to 14 days before arrival will qualify for a 50% refund or 100% of payment can be applied to a future reservation within a year. Cancellations made less than 14 days before arrival are not refundable.
