Sun Valley Idaho, Winter, Skiing Travel

 

I could go on and on about all the reasons I adore Sun Valley, Idaho.  It’s been a safe and happy escape for me for more years than I can count at this point.  My family spent 2.5 weeks there this winter and it was heaven, as always.  Just in case you’re planning on escaping California’s horrible ski conditions and heading to some real ski know, here are a few places to hit in town…

Gather Yoga

The vibe is unreal.  Warm, supportive, happy and always welcoming (even to us wannabe locals that float in and out of town when our kids have school breaks).  Owner, Danielle Fuller could not be cooler and if you’re up for a complete challenge, but are in need of a mental rejuvenation, instructor Beth Stuart is your girl for a powerful glow.

Rickshaw

My Australian brother-in-law noted this was the best Thai food he has had since moving to the states.  And he is right.  We all crave it when we’re not in town.  Their secret is simple – fresh, perfect ingredients.  When they run out, they close for the night.

Sun Valley Inn Sleigh Ride

There is nothing more quintessential “winter” than a sleigh ride in the snow.  My entire family loved the cozy ride through white fields of snow to the warm, quaint trail creek cabinet for dinner.  Hurry, the last ride of the season is Feb 21st.

As a side note…

I can’t wait for the classic Sun Valley Lodge to reopen this summer.  Word is the interiors will still feel classic Sun Valley, just freshened.  The spa is the new amazing upgrade I’m most looking forward to checking out.
