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
Despite the warm temperatures, gorgeous autumn colors and one of the prettiest fall seasons in memory, it is not too early to think winter. Specifically, it’s the perfect time to make sure you secure dining reservations for the busy holiday season. If Christmas wouldn’t be complete without dinner at Roundhouse on Baldy, a horse drawn sleigh ride to cozy Trail Creek Cabin or a family meal at the Ram, call 208-622-2800 today to secure your spot.
But first, plan your perfect Thanksgiving in Sun Valley. A fabulous feast will be offered at the Limelight Room of the Sun Valley Inn on Thanksgiving Day.

The holidays wouldn’t be complete without the magic of a horse drawn sleigh ride to rustic Trail Creek Cabin for a dinner you won’t forget.
Trail Creek Cabin, one of the most unique and lovely spots to enjoy a holiday meal, is also preparing a memorable Thanksgiving dinner. To book this one-of-a-kind venue, please call 208-622-2019.
Then, before we know it, the Christmas season will be upon us. Sun Valley is absolutely magical at this time of year and some of this magic comes from enjoying the Resort’s varied and memorable dining options. Many traditions involve celebrating at a special dinner with family and friends and there are numerous choices to do so in Sun Valley.
Dinner at Roundhouse is reached by gondola creating a truly unique experience. Add tremendous views and amazing food and you have an experience you’ll be talking about for years to come.
The charming, rustic Trail Creek Cabin is a favorite destination in the wintertime, especially because it is reached via horse drawn sleigh. Parties bundle up at the Sun Valley Inn and enjoy a sleigh ride over the snow beside Trail Creek, and beneath a breathtaking Idaho nighttime sky. Add Trail Creek’s famous hot scones and soup, handcrafted libations, and delicious food and you have a night you will never forget. Trail Creek Cabin opens for the holiday season on December 19 and reservations are now being accepted for the sleigh ride experience. The price, inclusive of the sleigh ride and dinner, is $149 for adults and $89 for children 12 and under. To reserve, please call 208-622-2135.
The Ram in the Sun Valley Village is cozy, intimate and full of charm. Book a holiday meal there today!
Other fabulous and special options for holiday dining include Roundhouse Restaurant perched two-thirds of the way up Baldy and accessible by gondola. The views, the food, and the general experience are simply not replicable and should be on everyone’s Sun Valley to do list. The Ram in the Sun Valley Village is also one of my favorites. Warm, intimate and authentic, the food is sublime, too. Don’t miss a chance to also eat at the newly re-imagined Gretchen’s Restaurant at the Sun Valley Lodge. The new open floor plan and terrific menu promise a night to remember. Please call 208-622-2800 for reservations at any of these can’t-miss options.
