Sun Valley, Idaho
One of Sun Valley’s hidden treasures is its cross-country skiing. It’s so good that numerous Olympic national teams from around the world come to Sun Valley just to train. While the cross-country skiing around town is phenomenal, the real gem of the area is Galena Lodge. Nestled beneath dramatic peaks north of Sun Valley, the cozy, no frills lodge is surrounded by miles of world-class nordic trails for every ability level. The delicious homemade food and soups at the lodge are a worthy reward after a couple of hours out on the trails and shouldn’t be missed.
Whatever you choose to do during the day, finish it at Zenergy Health Club & Spa. The highlight is a gorgeous outdoor hot tub and salt-water pool with great views overlooking the town and Mt. Baldy. Luxurious facilities offer a top-notch executive workout, alternating between the steam room, sauna, and hot tub, but if you want to sweat the full service gym has all the bells and whistles. There are also a couple of indoor tennis courts and a squash court if you like racquet sports.
For an affordable and social lodging experience, stay at The Hot Water Inn, a funky boutique hotel and hostel that hosts the best live music in town.
