After a total redo and relaunch of Sun Valley Lodge in June 2015, Sun Valley Resort has continued progress with updates to Sun Valley Inn, The Ram and The Ram Bar and the introduction of Village Station. The biggest project is at the inn where the 105 guest rooms are being renovated with some combined into suites, resulting in 98 guest rooms that will be completely finished in the fall. At The Ram, a new exhibition kitchen is the focus, and The Ram Bar now has wooden floors, a new fireplace, more seating and large screen TVs. The new Village Station features décor that celebrates Sun Valley’s train era, a full-service bar featuring several craft beers on tap, and pizza, pasta, sandwiches, burgers and entrees on the menu. 

The venues are among the most magical places for groups to experience the western U.S. and Canada.
