HI

what time does your flight get into Boise ?

It is only a 3 or 4 hr drive to Sun Valley depending upon weather.

but sometimes they do shut the road "interstate 84 "down for a while if have major snow event." blizzard or black ice"

If you get in early enough you can still head up to Boise ski hill to warm up for the steep and deep of Sun Valley Boise's hill "Bogus Basin" has night skiing open until 9.pm

or just chill at the many bars and restuarants downtown.

I would spend the night in Boise if you can't get into your rental

you have to sleep somewhere Boise would probably have more available rooms at a cheaper price than sun valley

do the price line bid thing that charley recommends for good rate.

what ever you decide have a great trip.

sawdeeka, just got the doubletree parkside for $32 for fri night...good score, and of course, the red feather!!!

i would say to stay in boise, rest up, buy some food at winco and costco and drive up there fresh.

what time do you get in?

You should stay in Boise. There's a lot to do, especially if you stay downtown. There are a number of good bars and restaurants. Also, you can take a walk along the river, go to the art museum, tour the Capitol, and buy socks.

i do it when ever we decide to go...if you bid 2 1/2 * and put down town, they only have 2 2 1/2 * hotels, marriott and springhill, both which are great. it gets tricky if you put in 3*, as there are a few of them i would not want to stay...like doubletree downtowner...it works like a charm, and i feel a bit guilty, as well.

If you have time to get there at a decent hour head to Sun Valley. You will start having fun immediately. Don't risk your lives driving in bad conditions though.
