      Sun Valley Resort charges three different price points for lift tickets, depending on the time of year. There is a regular season, peak season and value season. Value season dates will be from Nov. 28 to Dec. 15 and March 31 until the end of the season. The peak-season dates for the upcoming winter are Dec. 21 to Jan. 5 and Feb. 14 to Feb. 23. Lift ticket prices for adults on Bald Mountain will be $69 during value season, while peak season will cost $105. Last year, adult lift tickets for a peak-season day on Bald Mountain cost $99.
    The regular-season dates are from Dec. 16 to Dec. 20, Jan. 6 to Feb. 13 and Feb. 24 to March 30. Regular season full-day lift ticket prices for senior citizens will cost $74 and $56 for children. During peak season, full-day lift tickets for senior citizens will be $79 and $59 for children.
    Regular-season, half-day lift tickets will cost adults $72, $55 for senior citizens and $46 for children. Peak-season, half-day tickets will cost $80, $60 and $51, respectively.
