I’m really sorry to say this folks- but the ski season is coming to and end for resorts across the country.
It’s that sad time of year where the snow is rapidly melting, the days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and skis are starting to collect dust in anticipation for next season.
Somebody smarted than me once said, ‘Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.’ While I hate the fact that phrase has become a cliché, it’s a pretty good motto to live by.
So, in an effort to stay positive (sorry for being so dramatic), Sun Valley Resort, ID is throwing a weekend full of events to celebrate an awesome season.
The weekend kicks off with a huge Easter egg hunt, and wraps up with an awesome Easter Sunday brunch at The Sun Valley Club.
Check out the full press release of events from Sun Valley below, and I hope some of you are able to get out there to have some fun!
Sun Valley will close for the winter season on Sunday, April 17th.
