Bald Mountain - Sun Valley, Idaho

Barry stands just before Bald Mountain in Idaho.

It takes 25 minutes and $15.00 a piece to take the ski lift up Bald Mountain.

On the way we saw the 'Snow Makers'. If the ski resort doesn't get enough snow, the resort makes it!

Here is little Miss Deer chomping her way up Bald Mountain.

A weird kind of tree we encountered on the way up.

We made it to the top and had a beautiful view of Sun Valley, Ketchum and the Mountains.

The view on 'The Other Side of the Mountain'.

People actually ride their bikes up Bald Mountain. They must be in great shape!

Down on the ground. This is a picture of what is going to be the site of the new gondolas that are set to open this winter. Instead of 25 minutes to the top - the gondolas will get you to the top in 8 minutes! I'm sure it will be more than $15.00 per person!

We enjoyed our time at Bald Mountain. It reminds us of the gondola rides we took in Europe. It was gorgeous!
