Bald Mountain Expansion

Bald Mountain Expansion | Replacement of the Cold Springs Chairlift

Overview

The ski area within a ski area. A special place to glide down a wide-open bowl, navigate through trees, and descend deep chutes. The Bald Mountain Expansion will increase the skiable terrain by over 380 acres at Sun Valley Resort.

When the project is complete, in the Fall of 2020, it will include replacing the resort’s oldest chairlift, Cold Springs (#4), with a new high-speed detachable lift, providing a seamless transition to The Roundhouse restaurant, the Roundhouse Express Gondola, and Christmas (#3) chairlift. For those who prefer groomers and gradual pitches, the Lower Broadway run is being extended, lined with highly efficient snowmaking guns.

Construction began in 2018 with the re-routing and redevelopment of the Cold Springs mountain bike trail, grading of the Lower Broadway run, tree removal, and excavation work. The project continues this summer with additional snowmaking guns placed along Lower Broadway, glading, and terrain enhancement. The installation of utilities and the new chairlift will happen in Summer 2020, with the increased terrain, high-speed detachable lift, and additional snowmaking ready for Winter 2020-21.

Sun Valley Guest Perks


0

From the time you land until the time you leave, staying in Sun Valley Village comes with several unique experiences that can only be offered by the resort.

It would be enough to stay in Sun Valley’s storied lodge, built by the famed architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood. After all, this is where America’s destination ski experience began. And the magic lives on in the Sun Valley Lodge and the former Challenger Inn, both recently restored and endowed with the plush amenities of the 21st century.

But staying at Sun Valley Resort brings with it extra perks, as well.
