When you think of blockbuster holidays in Sun Valley packed with non-stop events, Christmas, July Fourth, and Labor Day probably pop to mind. But Presidents’ Weekend should also top your list of don’t-miss holidays at the resort. From fantastic skiing and riding to events to keep the entire family busy enjoying the mountain lifestyle, Sun Valley knows how to celebrate! And if your vacation falls the week before Presidents’ Weekend, don’t forget that spending Valentine’s Day in Sun Valley is as romantic as it gets.
DollarLIVE will be lit for Presidents...
There is something so nice about having beautifully manicured nails. Whether you are hiking in sweats or dressed for a cocktail party, lovely nails always make you look and feel put together. And a great pedicure can be transformative! There is no better place to indulge in a pampering manicure and pedicure than the Salon at the Spa at Sun Valley. In this spacious, light-filled salon, overlooking Bald Mountain, prepare to kick back, relax and let the professionals work their magic.
One such pro is Kelly Bozzuto. Kelly, a Hailey native and mother of two, has been working as a nail technician for 12 years and joined the Sun Valley team in June 2015. To say she loves her job is an understatement. “There are so many things about this job that make me happy,” she said. “We have wonderful clients and it’s always great to see people again and again, whether they live here or come for vacation.” Nothing is more fun for Kelly than also working with “problem” feet or hands. “Lots of people come in with dry, sports-damaged skin, particularly on their feet, and it’s great to see how terrific they look when I’m finished,” she enthused. “My favorite people to work on are extreme athletes or people who have not had their nails done in a long time and may have some issues. I love to fix things.”

It is a great time for nails at the Spa, as a new luxury nail line will debut at the Salon just in time for the holidays. As far as nail trends go, Kelly said the trend is no trends! “Whatever you want works,” she said. “There is no one color that everyone is asking for. You can wear dark brown in the summer and neon orange in the winter. Around the holidays, it’s fun to do some festive accents, too.”

If you haven’t experienced the Spa at Sun Valley, now is the time to see what you’ve been missing. The gorgeous full-service oasis is offering enticing spa specials from now through mid-December. The first, a nail special is the best way to get in to see Kelly or one of her terrific colleagues. From now through December 17 (with blackout dates from November 24 – 27), if you book a spa pedicure (delightful!) you receive an express manicure for free.
Also at the Salon, during the same period with the same blackout dates, make sure your hair looks beautiful for the holidays. If you schedule a blow out, you will receive the Pro-Fiber hair conditioning service, too. I tried this treatment recently, and it leaves your hair deeply conditioned, healthy, shiny, and strong.
If the stress of early holiday planning is putting you in knots, a massage is certainly in order. Check in to the Spa early; enjoy the steam room, sauna, and 16-head shower before indulging in a 50-minute massage. Even better? With the massage, you will receive a free body scrub leaving your skin smooth and soft and ready to show off in your party wear. With any Spa appointment, you may also enjoy the fitness center and iconic (very heated) outdoor pool.
Soon, there will be a new luxury nail line at the Salon – more options to help you choose your perfect holiday look
If your skin is in need of a little TLC, a facial special should add some glow to your day. If you book a 50-minute signature facial, you will receive a relaxing free scalp or eye treatment. You will leave looking beautiful and feeling refreshed. Both the massage and facial specials are also available through December 17 with blackout dates over Thanksgiving weekend.
‘Tis also the season for gift cards and gifts and the Spa at Sun Valley offers one-stop-shopping for presents they will love. Right now, the Spa is stocked with delightful gift items from jewelry, to yummy Ugg slipper/socks, throws, candles, and much, much more. A gift card always makes a perfect present for that special someone who will gratefully appreciate the gift of some luxurious pampering. Let the helpful staff at the front desk help you select exactly what you need.

The holidays are a pretty special time in Sun Valley, the perfect time to put your best foot, or hands, forward. “I love the traditions at Sun Valley,” Kelly said. “I grew up taking sleigh rides through the snow, watching the Christmas Eve Ice Show, and sledding in the powder. I love sharing the magic here with our guests.”
