Soldier Mountain Ski Area

In 1947, a visit to watch the Olympic Team Tryouts held at nearby Sun Valley, prompted friends Bob Frostenson and Harry Durall to found Soldier Mountain Ski Area. That summer they raised $10,000, began work on a base lodge, and purchased two rope tows. They cut timber, installed lifts, and built lodges by hand.

The first chairlift was installed in 1971 and the second was added in 1974. Soldier has 1,150 acres of variable alpine terrain including a terrain park, glades, bowls and tree skiing. Soldier Mountain also operates the only cat skiing operation in South-Central Idaho.

In the late 1990s, actor Bruce Willis purchased the Ski Lift. In Spring 2012, Mr. Willis donated the mountain a recently formed 501[c]3 Soldier Mountain Ski Area, Inc.

In November of 2015, Matt and Diane McFerran of Bend, Oregon purchased Soldier Mountain, moved to Idaho and have taken over operations.

Still a family-friendly mountain, Soldier Mountain offers back country Snow Cat skiing/boarding, overnight yurt stays and a great time on the slopes! Soldier Mountain Ski Area welcomes everyone, and we look forward to seeing you on the mountain!
