At a time when the skiing and snowboarding is at its finest, the days are long and warm, and the spring vibe fills the air, SolFest is bringing back the heart and soul of mountain town culture.

With Northwest and Rockies colleges on spring break, Sun Valley Resort is rolling out the red carpet offering college students with a valid student I.D. up to 50% off lift tickets and aggressive lodging specials.  Never has there been a better time for those looking for a memorable spring break to make the trip to Sun Valley.

 “There is something special about Sun Valley in the spring and we are serving up SolFest to bring people to town for a great time.  Few things are better than tearing up the ski hill with your friends dressed in some wild outfit with the bars and streets filled with great music and good times,” said Visit Sun Valley’s Greg Randolph.

“We are starting a spring tradition and using our creativity and resources to show younger generations just how much fun Sun Valley is.  We are lining up a great event, the skiing is always awesome this time of year, and having talent like the Fox Street All Stars and Blitzen Trapper on board is going to put the party over the top,” said Whiskey Jacques booking agent, Thatcher Marstadt.
