Sun Valley Update – Less than 100 days to the Ski Season
Warm Springs Lodge Update
As many of you know, tragically and sadly the Warm Springs Lodge caught fire just after the end of the ski season last year. But no worries. We can now rejoice because the Warm Springs Lodge is slated to re-open in time for this ski season.
And it will be better than ever with a new bar staring at the face of Warm Springs face, a coffee shop with pastries from the Konditorei (oh, just save me from myself now!), and an expanded salad bar. Plus 100 more seats so there is room for all of us!
Cold Springs Lift Expansion
From the Sun Valley website:
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 Cold Springs Canyon Project area will expand the skiable terrain by 380 acres at Sun Valley Resort.
When the project is complete, in the Fall of 2019, 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, the Roundhouse Express Gondola, and Christmas (#3) chairlift.
For those who prefer groomers and gradual pitches, the Lower Broadway run is being extended 3,400 feet, lined with highly efficient snowmaking guns, all the way to the new Cold Springs lift lower terminal. Construction started this summer, with the re-routing and redevelopment of the Cold Springs mountain bike trail.
