I think there is great skiing off of Galena summit, highway 75(?) north of Ketchum. The Sawtooths are beautiful mountains. I would ask at a local outdoor shop if you cannot find anything online.

correct, Off Galena Pass....just drive up the pass and hop out. Call Backwoods Sports for info.

Snow is thin in Ketchum (130" total cumualtive)....not called sun valley for nothing. All the storms seem to skip over it. Deeper in the sawtooths (north) toward stanley might be the ticket.
