You Can Close Out Ski Season in Spring Break Style

The end of ski season isn’t until the end of March, which makes Spring Break an amazing time to take advantage of the slopes under sunny skies. Head over to Sun Valley Resort with skis in hand and enjoy time on Dollar Mountain. If you’re here on the last two days of the season, you’ll be invited to don your best Hawaiian-themed apparel in celebration of the summer season to come. The last two days of ski season are typically marked with outdoor BBQs at the slopes, fun giveaways, and scavenger hunts for skiers as well. The very last day of ski season is when the annual Cold Bowl Pon Skim event is hosted. This typically starts around 10:00 am and participants take turns trying to make it across the pond on snowboards or skis while wearing crazy costumes. Afterward, everyone enjoys food, drinks, prizes, and live music to ring in the end of ski season in style.

Enjoy the Sun Valley Film Festival

The end of March and the beginning of April are when the annual Sun Valley Film Festival comes to town. This is an extra exciting event to add to the lineup for those who are visiting over Spring Break and have a passion for the big screen. In addition to the screenings that are slated during the festival, participants can enjoy talks with writers, directors, and actors—gaining even more insight into how this dynamic industry works. It’s a fun-for-all experience that you won’t want to miss when you’re in town.

Spend Time Nordic Skiing Your Way Through a Spring Stay

As temperatures begin to slowly rise, Spring Break in Sun Valley is an ideal time to grab your Nordic skis and hit the trails. When you do, you’ll be enjoying an activity in a place that’s sometimes referred to as “Nordic Town USA.” The name is well earned as Sun Valley hosts stunning ski terrain and a network of over 120 miles of trails to explore while you’re here. The trails are designed to link the north and south valleys as well as several spur Nordic track networks in between. You don’t have to have your own gear to make the most of this fun activity during your stay. Local destinations like the Sun Valley Nordic Center and the Galena Lodge have Nordic skis for rent for half and full-day excursions.

Find Time to Enjoy Fly Fishing in Sun Valley

Yes, you’re still going to want to bundle up, but if you happen to be heading to Sun Valley with a passion for angling, there’s no reason to leave fly fishing off your to-do list while you’re in town. Sun Valley is an ideal place for fly fishing thanks to its award-winning waters made up of rivers, creeks, and streams that are teeming with everything from brown trout and rainbow trout to cutthroats and apex bull trout too. Some of the most popular places to cast a line include Silver Creek, Big Wood River, Lost River, and Salmon River, to name a few of many. If you’re more inclined to head out alongside a local and experienced guide, Lost River Outfitters, Sun Valley Outfitters, and Silver Creek Outfitters all have options to book excursions upon request.
