Bunnies, Brunch and Bonnets

Tie on those Easter bonnets (with or without frills upon it) and head over to Sun Valley to celebrate the holiday and springtime in bloom. Easter weekend is right around the corner and children and adults alike will enjoy everything this sweet, colorful holiday offers.

On Friday, April 3, an epic egg hunt returns to Sun Valley Village. Grab your favorite children (ages 10 and under) and baskets and gather at the Sun Valley Inn Pond at 4:30 p.m. to search for more than 5,000 eggs, including one very special golden egg. Children will be grouped into zones by age, keeping everything safe and fun. Ready, set, search!

Easter is in the air and children will delight in a visit from the Easter Bunny during the Egg Hunt at the Sun Valley Village on Friday, April 3

To add to the merriment, the Easter Bunny will make an appearance from 4 – 5 p.m. to cheer on the egg hunters and to pose for photos. This event is free and sponsored by Sun Valley Village retail stores and is always a delightful way to spend an afternoon with the family.

There is one special golden egg hidden among the 5,000 dotting the landscape in and around the Sun Valley Pond!

Then, on Easter Sunday, April 5, let someone else do the cooking while you relax with friends and family at not one, but two, different brunch options.

The charming Konditorei welcomes guests to its indulgent and delicious Sunday brunch with a few special holiday touches. Vibrantly colored spring flowers, huge Easter baskets made of chocolate and candy bowls will set the tone for a wonderful meal, as will special hand painted chocolate eggs that are available for purchase. The friendly servers offer their regular a la carte brunch menu featuring favorites including featuring traditional Eggs Benedict, duck confit hash, sweet and savory crepes, Belgian Waffles (including chicken & waffles – yum!), savory omelets, and, of course, their amazing selection of house-baked pastries. Sit back, relax and order a build-your-own Bloody Mary or enjoy a fresh-squeezed Mimosa. Each guest will also receive a chocolate truffle at the end of his or her meal.

The Konditorei offers this special meal on a first-come, first-served basis -- no reservations will be accepted. Brunch is served from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. allowing you to enjoy all your other Sunday plans including the always-festive closing days for ski and snowboard season on Bald Mountain (the last day is April 6).

Brunch is a special occasion at the Konditorei and is even more special at Easter. Enjoy a sweet and savory menu and save room for one of their world-famous treats.

The Sun Valley Clubhouse is also offering a memorable Easter experience. This spacious, comfortable and light-filled restaurant will offer brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature a special a la carte menu. The Clubhouse will serve signature favorites with the addition of specialty brunch items. A full bar is available, as well as their famous Bloody Mary's, classic white peach Bellinis and other treats.  Again, no reservations are accepted so just come by and enjoy!

The first daffodil and tulip shoots are reaching for the sun. The grass is beginning to green up. Locals have shed heavy winter clothes for that ubiquitous Idaho fashion statement of shorts and flip flops with jackets. Spring is upon us and it's a great weekend to celebrate in Sun Valley. From the Egg Hunt to a delicious brunch to last turns followed by one last ice cold beer at the base of Baldy, join us!

Favorite Holiday Traditions Old and New

The holidays in Sun Valley are unique. From the snow-covered peaks (and ski runs!) that surround the Wood River Valley, to the old-fashioned charm of the Sun Valley Village and the decidedly European feel of the Resort, Christmas in Sun Valley is straight out of a beloved picture book. I have spent more than 30 Christmases in Sun Valley and while I certainly appreciate all that the Resort does to keep current (our amazing snowmaking and grooming, the gorgeous Lodge remodel, The Spa, and new
