Sun Valley Tourism Peaks During Summer Months


By KMVT News

Hailey, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Sun Valley has been coined 'Nordic Town USA' for its gorgeous ski slopes.

That's why this may come as a surprise: the area's peak tourism season is actually during the summer months.

That's according to airport manager Rick Baird. He breaks down the numbers for us, "From an air service perspective skywest could have as many as seven or eight flights a day in the summer time compared to five or six depending on which part of the winter it is."

Annually, Friedman Memorial Airport brings in more than $40,000 with an annual estimated economic impact of $72 million.
