Ketchum, Idaho

Welcome to Ketchum

Population 2,753

Located at the base of Bald Mountain and surrounded by national forests, Ketchum is the ideal place to live, work, and play. Since its founding in 1880, it has alternately been a rich mining district, the nation’s largest sheep-shipping station, home of the first ski chairlift, and a rowdy gambling town. This rich and wild history makes it more than one of America’s top ski destinations—it’s a small town where locals and visitors alike can enjoy the big life.

Thousands of acres of public land offer outdoors enthusiasts a bounty of fishing, hiking, rafting, biking, and backcountry skiing opportunities. If you prefer to enjoy beauty indoors, the town’s thriving arts, music, and restaurant scene is second to none.

So take off your boots, grab a beer, and discover the many ways you can make Ketchum your own.
