There are a few locations for snow kiting in the Sun Valley area. The closest is Phantom Hill which is 12 miles north of Ketchum (same as Sun Valley) on Hiwy 75. You can only park off the road in the areas where the road is widened for parking. There is a sign on the right side of the road marking Phantom Hill. Most people kite on the South side of the road although I've heard people kite on the North side which has more terrain, but you will have to hike a bit (4 blocks) to get on the other side of some power lines. You might need snow shoes for this hike if the snow is deep. The valley runs East/West so East or West winds work best, with a Northwest being the best. I kited this location and it was great. The other location is the Fairfield/Camas Prairie area. This location is a 1 hour drive SW. Take 75 South to 20 West and go to Fairfield. I don't know exactly where you kite at this location, although if there is snow, you could kite all over the place.

Ketchum can be an expensive town but there are cheaper retaurants to be found. Try KB's (Ketchum Burrito's) for an inexpensive meal sure to fill you up. Also try their Margaritas made with Saki...gggrrreat! Roosevelt Tavern restaurant is good american food with a nice deck upstairs if it's warm enough.
