Confused about what's in the resort..

The wife and I are headed to Sun Valley in a few weeks and I'm a little confused about the layout.

From what I've gathered, Sun Valley resort is actually separate from Sun Valley ski area. It appears that the town of Ketchum is actually closer to Bald Mountain, and on top of that when looking through the list of top restaurants in the area they all seem to be in Ketchum, and not the resort. So what exactly is in the resort, and what are the advantages to staying there over somewhere in Ketchum?

Additionally, I think I already know the answer, but is there any ski-in/ski-out lodging in the area or will we need to drive or catch a bus pretty much no matter where we stay?

They specifically mentioned the lodge and that is what my original comment was referring to. To the OP, wherever you stay I hope you have a fabulous time in our beautiful state. The people here are nice even if they sometimes disagree.

To the Op, one of the things i love about the area...is the peace fullness of looking up at the beautiful mountain and enjoying the breathtaking views. Some people spend their family vacation, hard earned , monies to come to our valley and i want them to enjoy the "peace" and "joy" this area has to offer. If the OP choses to stay at the lodge, a walk into town (about 1 mile), gives you the benefit of the view of Baldy for that time. Money can't buy that kind of enjoyment!!
