Default Sun Valley In March

If I go to Sun Valley at the end of March, can I expect enough snow? Good
snow?
Thanks!

You should expect plenty of snow, but it will be spring conditions of
course.

For info on the (awesome) North Valley Trail System, see:

Hi Gary-
the answer is "maybe"
I was just up there last weekend for the Boulder Mtn Tour-- they have a fairly decent snowpack, not an incredibly deep one. Whether or not it will last thru the end of March will depend on what kind of spring they have. Lots of storms will probably prolong a good snowpack until that time; if it's dry, they will probably be pretty thin by then.

In any case, your best bet will be to plan on skiing around Galena Lodge. It's the furthest point up the valley for the trail system, therefore higher and generally colder. The Sun Valley trail system (on the golf course down near Ketchum) will probably be gone by then.

If you have an alternate form of fun (e.g. road or mountain bike), be sure and bring that-- you can always have some form of amusement that way.

keeping my fingers crossed for a long winter-- I'm going to Canada for a ski trip at the end of April!
