BALD MOUNTAIN AT SUN VALLEY SET TO OPEN NOVEMBER 26!
Keeping with the long-held tradition of opening on Thanksgiving Day, Baldy will open on November 26, 2020 (Dollar will open on December 12). With a fair amount of snow in the forecast between now and Opening Day, plus the snow that Sun Valley makes, it should be a very good first day, and a great chance to congratulate Sun Valley on their #1 ranking in Ski Magazine.
Currently, there is no plan to have restricted skier numbers or reservations, as other Western resorts are doing. For a full update on the mountain's protocols and access, please click here.
The new ski lift, "Sunrise" (so named because it sits on the southeast side of the mountain and will therefore be the first to catch the sun each day), will not open until later in the winter, when there is enough snow.
See you on the slopes soon!
The bear is waiting to greet you at the River Run Base of Baldy.
OCTOBER MARKET UPDATE
October is traditionally a time when buyers and sellers take a bit of a breather from conducting real estate transactions. Not so this year.
It was another incredible month for closed Sales and Sold Dollar Volume, which both would have been record highs in any other year (but are only the 3rd-highest this year).
What's truly astonishing about October 2020, though, is that 169 properties went Under Contract during the month. In a typical October, we are lucky to see about 70-80 Pending Sales.
So once again, the pace of activity in the Sun Valley market is like nothing we've ever seen. The market will very likely top $1B in Sold Dollar Volume late this month, which will be the first time that ever happens. As of November 3, we have eclipsed the previous high of $926M, which happened in 2005.

No surprise to locals, this ranking is the result of the tremendous work that the ownership and staff at Sun Valley puts into the "Guest Experience."
Congratulations, Sun Valley. A well-deserved honor!
