Sawtooth National Forest

Neighboring the beautiful Sawtooth National Forest, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area is both a pride of Ketchum and central Idaho.

Adjacent to the famed Sun Valley ski area, this 778,000-acre Idaho playground boasts of cross-country ski trails, fabulous downhill skiing, and some unforgettable wildlife and scenery.

Gear up for a day on skis, snowboard or snowmobile, because we’re heading to the Sawtooth National Forest.

With available warming huts along the way, snowmobile enthusiasts may zoom through the Fairfield Ranger District, Ketchum Ranger District, and Minidoka Ranger District on groomed or marked trails.

Back in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, you may cross-country ski and snowshoe across several snowy areas, including the Redfish Lake Recreation Complex and the Wood River Valley Area.

Just northeast of Ketchum and practically next door to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, the Sun Valley ski area can be reached from the Sawtooth Scenic Byway.

This stunning alpine ski area is a famed spot in Idaho, and attracts skiers and snowboarders from across the globe, including a few famous ones. Advanced skiers may take to the slopes of the well-known Bald Mountain, while beginner level and traveling families may shred their way down Dollar Mountain.
