Sun Valley: Cold Springs Express project
The ski area within a ski area. A special place to glide down a wide-open bowl, navigate through trees, and descend deep chutes. This is the proposed Cold Springs Canyon Project area that will expand the skiable terrain by over 380 acres at Sun Valley Resort.
When the project is complete, in the Fall of 2020, it will include replacing the resort’s oldest chairlift, Cold Springs (#4), with a new high-speed detachable lift, providing a seamless transition to The Roundhouse, the Roundhouse Express Gondola, and Christmas (#3) chairlift. For those who prefer groomers and gradual pitches, the Lower Broadway run is being extended 4,200 feet, lined with highly efficient snowmaking guns. The first phase of construction was completed in 2018, with the re-routing and redevelopment of the Cold Springs mountain bike trail.
Replacement of the Cold Springs (#4) Chairlift
The main purpose of the project is the replacement of the Cold Springs (#4) chairlift, the oldest lift still operating at the resort.
