SUN VALLEY, Idaho -- The Sun Valley Lodge will be closing after Labor Day weekend for the rest of the year.

The Idaho icon is undergoing some major renovations.

They are adding a spa, updating rooms, heating and air conditioning, and adding a brand new lobby, as well.

Staff at Sun Valley says the remodel is an exciting and much needed change.

"Everybody knows were going to go through a complete remodel, which is more than just a remodel, a rebirth almost of the lodge," said Sun Valley spokesman Jack Sibbach. "We're so excited because it hasn't been touched since 1936. Even though the lodge will be closed, Sun Valley's skiing, restaurants, inn and rental condos will still be open."

The lodge will reopen in June of 2015.
