Although it’s hard to believe, winter is the lifeblood for some cities located throughout the Rockies. Ketchum is one of those cities that just kind of remind you of the North Pole in a way. Well, if the North Pole were a real city, that is. Something about this place just makes you want to shop for gifts and get ready for Christmas, regardless of the time of the year.
The Sun Valley Ski Resort in the background only makes this experience all the better. As impressive as the slopes look from the city, the town looks even more amazing when you’re at the top of one of the local peaks at night. Ultimately winter is best enjoyed in towns like Ketchum, where the snowy mountains and festive lights make the holidays seem all the more beautiful.
