Known for being America’s first ski resort, visitors from all around the world come to Sun Valley Resort annually to experience the hollywood ambiance and diverse terrain. Surrounded by a bowl of stunning peaks and over 220 inches of fluffy powder, it feels like you are skiing on a cloud. As one of Natural Retreats’ destinations, me and a cinematographer went to Sun Valley resort for the weekend to document the conditions and the guest’s experience. We created three videos that were then used for social media ads and organic posts.
Using a drone for the overarching shots we wanted to capture the majestic qualities of the entire area. Using a handheld camera we followed around a few skiers and snowboarders who took us on their favorite Sun Valley runs. We ended the day in one of Natural Retreats’ properties that was located right in the heart of downtown with views from every room. While it’s hard to give the full Sun Valley experience in 30 seconds - this video teaser gives future and upcoming guests a taste of the resort and a vacation with Natural Retreats.
This short 15 second video, focused entirely on the aesthetic of the mountain and the skiing conditions found at the resort.
Another short 15-second video of the resort, but this time it featured a day for a skier - starting on the slopes and ending at the resort’s patio for some après ski celebrations.
