Sun Valley gets its name from its 250 days of sunshine per year. But the Idaho resort has also had a good snow year — enough that lifts should be turning for skiing until mid-April. The last two weeks of the season offer a time to get good deals for lift tickets and lodging at Sun Valley Resort along with some fun

The resort is planning to run lifts on Bald Mountain until April 14, 2013. That, of course, is pending cooperative weather. The last day on Dollar Mountain is scheduled for March 31.

For skiing and snowboarding in April, Sun Valley Resort drops the price of lift tickets across the board. The one-day adult lift ticket plummets from $95 to $66. You don’t need a coupon or voucher; the lower ticket rates are available at all sales locations at the resort.

The resort also discounts lodging packages in April. You can get one night of lodging and one day of skiing for $79.50 per person. Rates are based on double occupancy.

This April, the Orage Masters comes to Sun Valley. Elite skiers compete in teams of four with costumes, slopestyle, antics, and partying. The event, scheduled for April 5-7, brings out crowds to watch the spectacle.

Here’s a snippet of what the Orage Masters, which is tagged the “Anti-Comp”, is about:
