This is a beautiful and private SNOWCREEK condo, lovingly maintained and enjoyed for 17 years. This has been our home for several months of every year, and it has all of the amenities anyone would want in their own home. In addition to the beautiful kitchen with granite countertops, river rock fireplace, and log trim, it is decorated and outfitted like a home. We have a lot of art work on the walls, a desk surrounded by windows close to the kitchen, a loft with two log twin beds and a large wood table that has a printer available for your use. When we are there, the desk on the main floor is mine, and the 'office' is in the loft for my husband. Beautiful Pendleton blankets are draped over the railing for privacy and beauty. The river rock fireplace is ignited with a gas starter, so it's easy to have the fire warming the house in the winter.
The most appreciated aspect of our condo is it's location. A walk up the path brings you to one of the few condos in this complex that has an unobstructed view over the meadow on Dollar Mtn, with Bald Mtn in the distance. There aren't trees blocking the view, nor do we look at other condos and/or the parking lot. The view is incredible, and once you are there, privacy and peace are yours with beauty both inside and out.
Snowcreek is located in the heart of Sun Valley, adjacent to Dollar Mtn, which includes Sun Valley's newest mountain lodge with Sun Valley's Ski and Snowboarding School for the whole family. Sun Valley Resort is 1/3 mile away, and the town of Ketchum is 1 mile away. If you don't feel like walking or biking to Sun Valley Resort or to Ketchum, the local bus system (KART) is easily available and accessible. Both Sun Valley Resort and Ketchum offer shopping, fine dining, and people watching...all within a mile from 'home'.
Winter skiing is fabulous in Sun Valley, whether you ski on Dollar Mtn and return to the condo for lunch, or go to Bald Mtn and eat lunch in one of the three fabulous lodges. In addition to downhill skiing, cross country skiing and snowshoe trails are easy to access and in abundance.
Summer is a wonderful time of year in Sun Valley. The mountains that surround us are full of incredible hiking trails for the whole family. In addition to hiking, you can ride your bike on the wonderful rail to trail system, no cars allowed! Golfing is also a huge summer draw: I don't think there are many golf courses as beautiful as Sun Valley. When the entire family wants to golf, there is a challenging 'putt putt' course that everyone, skilled or not, loves. Wonderful things are provided by Sun Valley Resort: ice skating, bike rentals, and the most incredible free concerts in the summer. Finally, there are water sports: fishing, rafting, and swimming. Snowcreek is one of the only complexes in the Valley with it's own pool and hot tub, it's own clubhouse with a ping pong table, and it's own on site live in manager. You never have to leave!
If you choose to be a guest in our home away from home, we think you will be very happy. We love it. There are new sheets and towels for you to enjoy, and if there is anything that doesn't meet your expectation and/or needs to be repaired, we have a local management company that can help you out immediately. It is, after all, our home too.

Sun Valley is a summer and winter playground for adults and children. In the winter you will want to down hill ski, cross country ski,skate ski, snow shoe, sled, and take hikes in the mountains. In the summer the possibilities are endless: golf, fly fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, rafting, ice skating, etc. A favorite summer time activity is to sit outside and listen to incredible performances by the symphony. The possibilities and opportunities are endless. September has Wagon Days, and October has the jazz festival. Fall is a beautiful time of the year with the trees turning yellow and red and the crisp mountain air.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: Our family has been spending summers and winters in Sun Valley for over 30 years. Our primary residence is in Washington, but our hearts reside in Sun Valley. This condo has provided a lot of wonderful shared memories for both our families, and our friends. We love to ski and hike in the winter, and we love to hike and bike in the summer. It doesn't matter what age you are, Sun Valley is a summer camp for everyone!
Why the Owner Chose Sun Valley, ID, USA:
We chose to buy our condo in Snowcreek because we love the location. One of our requirements was to have a view of Bald Mountain, which we do. Another requirement was to actually be in Sun Valley rather than Ketchum. We believe that location is everything, and being close to the resort was important to us. Finally, we chose Snowcreek because of the on site property manager, the private pool, and the hot tub. I don't think we knew at the time how perfect Snowcreek would be for our family.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I think we initially fell in love with the view from our condo. Not seeing any other condos and looking out at Bald mountain in the distance made us fall in love with the condo from the beginning. Since that time, we have remodeled and upgraded the condo, added a beautiful deck upstairs and a stone patio downstairs. Additionally, since 1997 a lot of work has been done making Dollar Mountain a destination in and of itself. This means snow making equipment and snow grooming equipment....which we never hear because we are on the backside of the mountain and buffered from the noise. When we purchased this condo, we didn't know that the grounds would eventually be beautifully landscaped, or that Dollar Mountain would grow and change as it has, and so we feel incredibly fortunate that it is still such a wonderful place to live.
