The history of ski racing in Sun Valley is as rich and as impressive as anyplace in the country. And the future is looking pretty bright, too. It is as if the slopes of Baldy and Dollar were blessed by the ski gods, Ullr and Skadi, to groom the fastest and strongest skiers and snowboarders to ever ride on snow. Sun Valley has been home to the best in the alpine sports scene since shortly after inventing the world’s first chairlift back in the 1930s. It’s a tradition that’s staying strong and is proudly on display as Sun Valley hosts events like last weekend...
Despite some monumental March snowfall, spring is in the air and Easter is right around the corner. There is no better way to celebrate than with a wonderful meal with family and friends, as well as a traditional Easter Egg Hunt. Sun Valley is the place to be for a memorable Easter that includes all this and much more.
Easter is a magical time for the whole family in Sun Valley
In my estimation, there are few more lovely ways to enjoy Easter than with brunch. This year, the Sun Valley Club will offer a special buffet (my favorite!) brunch from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Easter Sunday, March 27. With a menu reflecting traditional Easter offerings like lamb, ham, turkey and bountiful side dishes, this will be a meal sure to please the whole group. Come and relax in this gracious and spacious room with glorious views over Dollar, Baldy and surrounding mountains. My favorite thing about the Clubhouse, other than the delicious food, is that the tables are big and welcoming, encouraging you to settle in, enjoy, and stay a while. This festive meal will be $40 for adults and $25 for children 12 and under. There will be three seatings at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. For reservations, please call 208.622.2919.
The charming Konditorei in the Sun Valley Village will offer its signature Sunday Brunch on the 27th, adding special holiday a la carte items to the regular menu. Sip a mimosa or create a signature Bloody Mary and order a delicious and creamy hot chocolate for the kiddos. Menu favorites like biscuits and gravy, Eggs Benedict and crepes will be available in addition to the Easter specialties. Children will be offered a special sweet treat, too, from Konditorei’s amazing pastry chef. The special meal will be served from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information please call 208.622.2235.
The Sun Valley Club will offer a bountiful brunch for Easter, similar to the one my family enjoyed at Christmas. Don’t miss this – it’s delicious!
If skiing or snowboarding are part of your Easter plans – and they should be since we have had so much snow this month – you can enjoy special a la carte menu items for the holiday at the River Run Lodge. Stop in between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. to indulge in quiche and other yummy egg dishes as well as traditional items like carved turkey and ham. This truly is the best of every world!
Sun Valley’s annual Easter Egg Hunt in the Village is fun for children from babies to 10-year-olds. Ready, set, hunt!
And Easter wouldn’t be Easter without cute children gripping baskets in a frenzy of egg hunting. The annual Sun Valley Egg Hunt will be held on Friday, March 25, from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Sun Valley Inn Pond and is sponsored by the Sun Valley Village retail stores. This “bring your own basket” event includes photos with the Easter Bunny from 3 – 4 p.m. At 3:30 p.m. sharp, the egg hunt begins. Children will be placed into three groups: 0–3 year olds, 4–6 year olds, and 7-10 year olds. They will race around searching for more than 5,000 stuffed eggs, including a golden egg.
If you want to make a whole afternoon of it on the 25th, be sure to be at the base of Warm Springs on Baldy to watch the U.S. Alpine Championship Slalom Awards at 2:30pm. Then make your way to the Sun Valley Village for some Easter merriment. After the egg hunt, take advantage of free transportation from the Village to Dollar Mountain to watch the Big Air Exhibition at 4:30 p.m. It will be eye popping.
Bluebird skies and great conditions characterize spring skiing in Sun Valley. Make a few runs a part of your Easter weekend plans and be sure to catch the action of the U.S. Alpine Championships and the Big Air Exhibition
Be sure to also make a few runs on Baldy or Dollar yourself over the holiday weekend. The conditions are prime and spring skiing and riding in Sun Valley are always memorable. Plus, you won’t feel guilty about indulging in that bountiful Easter brunch after a little exercise and fresh air.
Happy Easter to all!
My son was thrilled to find the golden egg at the annual Easter Egg Hunt – a family tradition
