The Idaho Mountain Express’ 2019 Best of the Valley survey has been launched and is open to voters until midnight Sunday, March 3.

Go to to cast your votes for the best that the Wood River Valley has to offer. Or, click on the “Best of the Valley” ad on the home page of the newspaper’s website,

Six sections, covering about 140 categories, are included in the survey. Voters will dictate the best of Blaine County in dining, recreation, shopping, business, entertainment and people.

This is the 11th year that the Sun Valley Guide, sister publication to the Idaho Mountain Express, has conducted a “best of” survey for the Wood River Valley.

The Best of the Valley survey will be delivered through the leading survey tool on the Web, SurveyMonkey. This method of collecting data is tamper-proof—no ballot stuffing—producing the most accurate results available. Most questions are open-ended, not multiple-choice, so participants can fill in any answer they desire. Voters are asked to make an honest effort to answer as many questions as they can. Surveys that are clearly directed at voting for only one or two particular businesses or categories will be disqualified to combat ballot-box stuffing.
