Sun Valley Resort set to open new expansion this weekend

Sun Valley will open a new chairlift this weekend that will replace the oldest lift at the resort, Cold Springs.

The Broadway chairlift will open this Saturday. Broadway is a high-speed detachable quad lift.

The new lift can bring guests from the base of the lower Broadway run, to the Roundhouse Restaurant, to the Roundhouse gondola and to the Christmas Chairlift.
