Just last week, a Saturday night dinner at the Ram Restaurant in Sun Valley Village seemed like a great idea. One member of our party was anxious to try the nightly $25 special of Hungarian Goulash, and an evening spent at the beautiful eatery, accompanied by live piano music, and noshing on delicious food sounded perfect. Our decision proved even more prescient when the server announced that the Ram was running a spring special: fondue for two (free!) with the purchase of any two entrees. It was a bubbling, gold prize at the end of the proverbial rainbow!
Fondue for two with...
After this long, very snowy winter, hints of spring are a welcome sight even as the riding and skiing continue to be fantastic. And nothing says spring like the pastel colors, flowers, traditions, and treats of the Easter holiday. There is no more festive place to celebrate Easter and springtime than at the Sun Valley Village.
Come and celebrate Easter and spring at the Sun Valley Village with a special egg hunt and a visit from the bunny on April 14
This year, on Friday, April 14, Village shops and restaurants will again host Easter celebrations perfect for the entire family. These include a mammoth Easter egg hunt, train rides for the little ones, and a visit from the Easter Bunny himself. The fun starts at 2 p.m. and lasts until 9 p.m. The epic Easter Egg Hunt, held on the Sun Valley Terrace, invites children 12 and under to scramble for colorful eggs in a time-honored tradition. Children are divided by age and it’s a favorite activity each year. The hunt is followed by rides on the Kids’ Train and a visit with the Easter Bunny. Parents, this is a great photo opportunity!
The annual Village Easter Egg Hunt is great fun for children
That evening, the family-friendly Bald Mountain Pizza is open from 5 – 9 p.m., serving its signature pasta dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, pizzas from the traditional to the innovative, and popular appetizers like mozzarella sticks. This eatery is casual, affordable, and super tasty. After dinner, head over to a la mode, also open until 9 p.m., for a delicious ice cream treat, or depending on the weather, perhaps a hand-crafted hot chocolate. Try anything that features Idaho huckleberries! It will be a great afternoon and evening for the entire group.

It will be a huge party on Easter Sunday at the base of Warm Springs on Bald Mountain as people toast the epic season that was

Live bands will play at Warm Springs Lodge from 2:30- 5:30 p.m. as skiers and riders get in some of their last turns of what has truly been an epic season. Also don’t forget the bonus weekend Sun Valley is offering to keep this amazing season going just a little longer.

Both weekends are a way to celebrate and thank the locals, guests, and mountain community for another successful season.
