Spring in Sun Valley

Dine, Play, and Stay Local

Spring is in the air, along with specials for living, playing, and staying at one of America’s first destination year-round resorts. Take a breather with the fresh mountain air, new flowers in bloom, and plenty of activities and specials to make it affordable to stay for a long weekend or make it a day trip. Whatever your choice, now is the time to live like a local in Sun Valley.

To order your “Four for $49 Take-out,” please call 208-622-2138.
