Progress underway on Sun Valley Inn revamp

Sun Valley Resort is working on the previously announced renovation and expansion of a portion of the Sun Valley Inn.

The project will update some guest rooms, as well as revamp the old Bald Mountain Pizza into a new concept, plus reworking the Ram and Ram Bar. From a news release:

Remodeling of the Sun Valley Inn guest rooms began this fall with the first 25 of the 105 of them undergoing renovations, with the remaining 80 scheduled for the Fall of 2018. New furnishings and amenities, combined with some existing features, will retain the classic ambiance of the historic hotel. Some of the rooms are being connected to make expanded guest suites, meeting the needs of today’s sophisticated traveler and what guests have come to expect from Sun Valley Resort. Once completed, the inn will have 98 guest rooms.

Construction crews hope to have this phase of the project done in time for the December ski season.
