Taking a break in Sun Valley has become increasingly hard because there’s so much to enjoy! After a full season of non-stop events, happenings, and summer outings, which did not let up until late fall, the idea of enjoying time off is very appealing. In SVPN Magazine ’s fall tri-issue, October/November/December, there are some excellent opportunities to learn more about our vibrant and entrepreneurial community while taking a breath before the snow flies. In this edition of SVPN, get to know some of the people who have made Sun Valley a slice of heaven.

We also have a full schedule of events, too!

As our cover feature story, learn about the resurrection of Reflex ski poles. In addition, also read about the founding of Wild Rye, women’s technical clothing for outdoor play

and enjoyment. Each venture shows the next generation’s spirit and dedication to mountain living and lifestyle.

For a moment of reflection, Wood River Valley resident and actor Scott Glenn shares his new book of poetry, Friction Zone, written with all of us in mind. It’s a keeper! Another good read is “A Day in the Life of Mountain Humane.” Enjoy this picture essay on how one day can change a life.

In addition, we are excited to share property news in Elkhorn and other new inventory on the Sun Valley market including a market round-up from Paul Kenny. It’s all in this issue with so much more, including the Sun Valley Restaurant Association Dining Guide with a spotlight on the Sun Valley Wine Company.

Where Will

Lead Us?


It’s hardly news that business in America and across the world has changed since the pandemic. In 2022 and 2023, a new group of people made their homes in the Wood River Valley from cities and elsewhere across the nation. Newcomers may not be aware of the abounding challenges in a place that is both a small mountain town and a world-class resort. Ketchum business owners are known for their resiliency. They are always dependent on weather, tourism, repeat customers, and always bracing for disasters, wildfires, and recessions. Andria Friesen comes to mind in thinking of resilience and the changes and challenges this town shares.

SDP: I have spent a good part of my 18 years in this Valley writing about the galleries and the artists whose work is exhibited here. When I learned that your prior gallery was closing, I was stunned. I recall so many exciting installations and fascinating artists, as well as how you used the space to support numerous Valley nonprofit organizations. It was only a year and a half ago that SVPN celebrated your gallery’s milestone anniversary. And our following issue highlighted the new owner. This must be surreal for you?

AF: Yes, the closing is perplexing. And, for me, a highly significant and unexpected ending. I can fully appreciate the desire to pursue other passions and address personal issues, but I do not understand why the gallery was comingled with these decisions. There certainly were multiple options for a positive way ‘out.’ I think, on some level, I am still in shock. In a small town like Ketchum,

conversation with

it’s not just about one person’s livelihood when any business closes or leaves town for another location. There is a ripple effect that impacts many careers and lives.

SDP: Many of us who were drawn to this Valley have suffered highs and lows and risen like Phoenixes from the ashes, sometimes literally. This community has become attractive to so many because of the results of hardworking and motivated residents before them. Gifting your gallery as you did is not entirely surprising, given the culture of generosity in this community. Why did it dissolve so soon after the change in ownership?

AF: Good question. Following the 35th anniversary of my gallery, I was consumed equally with the excitement of ‘paying it forward’ by gifting the business and how fulfilling I found mentorship to be. Clearly, I neglected to look at any potential downsides. Anything other than thriving never crossed my mind.

SDP: In a small, rural community like Ketchum, how do numerous fine art galleries thrive as if operating in a major city or cultured, cosmopolitan area?

AF: Less than one percent of art galleries in America have been in business for 35 years or more, and Ketchum had four (now three). This is an extraordinary statistic and speaks volumes for our collective passion, our visitors, and for the supporting role of our pristine surroundings. Institutions are not created by longevity alone—the strong commitment and ethics of so many in this town accentuate its uniqueness.

SDP: Since opening your gallery in 1986 on First Avenue, many changes are now underway, and that Avenue is soon to thrive with new residences, offices, and businesses. It would appear a gallery would benefit a great deal from the surroundings. What will become of the space?

AF: You are absolutely correct on the benefit, and I’m thrilled to announce a new gallery will soon move in. The ownership is based in Canada, and they have a leading art presence in Whistler and Banff. This will be their first U.S. gallery, Sun Valley Contemporary Gallery. At present, their intentions are to represent at least a few of the artists from the Friesen Gallery roster, and, of course, this is deeply meaningful to me. The artists are sincerely appreciative given their unexpected loss of representation in the Valley. I’ve greatly enjoyed all my communications with Sun Valley Contemporary Gallery and believe they will be a fresh and exciting asset to our local art scene.

SDP: This is big news! And it’s easy to see how delighted you are. Also, given what that building means to you, you’re no doubt relieved it will again contain a gallery. You possess great fortitude to persevere. What’s next for you?

AF: The space could accommodate a variety of enterprises, and yes, I am truly grateful another gallery will soon flourish there. As for what’s next, I plan to take the sum of my experiences and weave them into something worthwhile and of service.

SDP: Ketchum is a special place, and I care deeply for this community, as do you. However, are we facing irreversible change and loss?

AF: Indeed, this rural gem within Idaho has changed. And while change is inevitable, I am certainly optimistic we can retain the small-town feeling of genuine care and respect this town was built on and has progressed with. I still believe in the soul of Ketchum.

SDP: Having owned an art gallery in Ketchum, Idaho, for 35 years, what does it mean to be part of this community, especially as a business owner?

AF: Only recently have I realized that this community taught me what community is. What I am clear on now is how much I’ve learned from this locality. From 1986 to the present, I have received innumerable expressions of kindness and generosity. I aspire to emulate these acts and am thankful they far outweigh the lessons I learned the hard way. 

Book the mountain for a retreat

32 svpn- mag.c om

Soldier Mountain has undertaken projects that will ensure a longer ski and snowboard season in-bounds and out of bounds this winter. Over the last two summers, staff have worked to restore the resort’s snowmaking system, which was first installed in 1976 but laid dormant for decades and was damaged by the Phillips Fire that swept through the area in August 2020.

“Thanks to these efforts, Soldier Mountain will have a fully functional snowmaking system that extends from the base to the top of Chair 1, also known as the High Trail Express, for the first time since the late 1970s,” says General Manager Paul Alden. “This will let us start spinning Chair 2, Bird’s Eye, earlier, too.”

In addition, he says the resort expanded brush-cutting this season—adding two more runs to the existing list of trails it mows—to open more terrain earlier in the season and be able to leave it open longer. Soldier Mountain replaced one of its three snowcats, too, with a top-of-the-line model from PistenBully. “Our new PB600 is a real game-changer for us,” Alden says. “It yields perfectly groomed slopes, plus it will allow us to build solid roads in our cat-skiing terrain earlier in the season to help us maximize permit time in the backcountry.” The resort will also redesign the tubing park this winter to make it more fun and user-friendly.

Soldier Mountain is already booking seats on the snowcat for its renowned backcountry experiences, and staff are gearing up for a busy season. They are also taking reservations for the resort’s “My Mountain” package. For $6,000, this package allows you to privately book the mountain during non-operational days (Mondays through Wednesdays) for corporate retreats or personal events.

Established in 1947, Soldier Mountain is a family-friendly mountain resort located near Fairfield, Idaho, at 1043 N. Soldier Creek Road in the Soldier Mountains of the Sawtooth National Forest. It is about two hours from Boise, 80 minutes from Sun Valley, and 90 minutes from Twin Falls. The resort offers skiing and snowboarding on 35 named trails and a terrain park on the frontside comprising 1,150 lift-served skiable acres and 2,000 acres of snowcat-accessible backcountry.

Soldier Mountain has two chairlifts reaching an altitude of up to 7,177 feet, a magic carpet, and a tubing hill. In the summer, it offers five mountain biking trails, a skills park, and a nine-hole disc golf course. Its lodge restaurant serves homemade fare, while The Fox Den Pub provides guests with a cozy spot to hang out after a great day on the mountain. Camping spots are available at the end of the resort’s parking lot at Pioneer Campground, and along the road beyond, and motel lodging and vacation rentals are available in Fairfield, about ten miles away. As an Indy Pass partner, Soldier Mountain also offers season pass holders discounted Indy Passes as an add-on. 

Behold the Sturgeon full moon with Robert Procop’s Luminous collection

For more than 25 years, Valerie Naifeh, founder and owner of Naifeh Fine Jewelry, has presented exquisite gemstones and precious metal jewelry and high-end jewelry designers along with custom jewelry designs at her flagship location in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. At her new Sun Valley Resort Village location, and in celebration of its opening and the Sturgeon full moon, Naifeh presented a rare moment with Robert Procop of Beverly Hills in attendance with his Luminous jewelry collection in honor of the Sturgeon full moon.


“I’ve not been able to coax Robert to Oklahoma City, but when he heard I was opening a location in Sun Valley, the lure of this special place was too great!” says Naifeh. “He only shows Luminous by Brooke during a full moon, so what an honor to have the collection here for our guests to enjoy…and purchase!”

Procop, former CEO of the Crown jeweler of the United Kingdom, Asprey & Garrard, is one of the few fine jewelers in the world who uses only natural, nonheat-treated stones where each piece is a unique work of art. Attendees at this jewel-studded evening affair with Naifeh and Procop were able to have an exclusive

viewing of the Luminous collection and the newly opened Naifeh Fine Jewelry store in the Sun Valley Village, followed by a full-course dinner and music at The Ram restaurant. Naifeh, known for her charisma, charm, and philanthropic endeavors, designs collections, which were also on view at her new Sun Valley Resort location. 

TahNibaa Naataanii’s Navajo Textiles

TahNibaa Naataanii grew up herding sheep at her family’s ranch in Table Mesa, New Mexico. She also helped her mother and sister shear and butcher the family’s herd on the Navajo Nation. Table Mesa is also where she learned to weave at the age of seven. When she was thirteen, she had a sacred ceremony to celebrate becoming a young woman, and from that moment, weaving, and the spirit of it, stayed with her.

Her Navajo name, TahNibaa Atlo’iigii—given to her by her paternal grandmother—means “coming into battle with your weaving.” Naataanii weaved throughout her teenage years but didn’t yet realize the importance of the craft.

During her late teens in the military, Naataanii was in the Philippines and visited a market where she saw woven goods on display.

“I touched every one of them,” she says. “The people couldn’t understand me, but I told them that I understood this way of life. I told them, ‘I’m a weaver, too.’ I believe at that time that Spider Man and Spider Woman [who wove the web of the universe and taught the Navajo to weave] visited me across the ocean and reminded me of who I was.”

When she returned stateside, Naataanii started weaving again and eventually returned to the Four Corners region and enrolled in college in Santa Fe. While there, she connected with a community of Chimayo weavers, whose Navajo weavings spoke to her.

“I realized around that time that my weaving was talking to me. It scared me because I was going to school, and all of a sudden, the weaving started speaking to me, and I couldn’t deny it. I couldn’t not respond to it. I had to respond by weaving. And that’s when I realized—this Navajo weaving, there’s something powerful about it. It’s like a spiritual experience. And I trusted that,” she shares.

Naataanii graduated with her bachelor’s degree in environment management and conservation science and, a year later, moved home to help take over the family ranch. “I took my parents’ retiring as a message from the Spider Woman and Spider Man that coming back home was the correct thing to do,” she says.

She began weaving full-time, and now, more than 20 years later, Naataanii knows that her trust in the deities was right. “I trusted that weaving was going to put food on the table for me and support me,” she says. “It has done that, and it continues to blossom.”

“Our looms and spindles are not borrowed and remade from another culture. The way we have them today is the way they were created for us.” 45
—TahNibaa Naataanii

Today, Naataanii herds, shears, and butchers her own flock of Navajo Churro sheep. She processes the wool herself and is proud of the materials the sheep provide to her. On her loom, she creates blankets, ponchos, and shawls using traditional Navajo designs and new patterns.

“On occasion, I’ll weave a regional pattern like the Two Grey Hills—a very symmetrical, geometric pattern with natural colors,” she says. But she doesn’t like her creativity to be limited.

“I like to weave historical themes that tell about the Navajo Code Talkers and political themes that voice the concerns of indigenous people about the land. Like weaving in semihistorical themes that use the Navajo Whirling Log (often mistaken for a German swastika). When I do that, it becomes an educational platform—I’m educating my own people and others who come to see the weaving,” she explains.

Education about Navajo textiles is a clear love for the artist, who was also recently recognized as a 2022 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow. As part of October’s annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival, Naataanii will speak about her weaving during the event’s Sheep Tales Gathering storytelling evening.

“The community will get to see how our weaving was created,” Naataanii says. “When they see the whole process from carding to spinning to weaving—when they see me do those steps, they’ll get a glimpse of what my people have been doing for a long time.”

A fifth-generation Navajo weaver, Naataanii creates as her ancestors did, using techniques and tools that were passed down to her from her mother and grandmother.

“Weaving was created for us by our deities,” she says. “And there was careful planning when the Navajo loom was made. Every single part of it has significance, a special song to it. Our looms and spindles are not borrowed and remade from another culture. The way we have them today is the way they were created for us.” 

A must-see at this year’s Trailing of the Sheep Festival is the National Point Qualifying Sheepdog Trials, featuring the most talented border collies from around the West and beyond. Each border collie is paired with a top handler, and the Festival Trials present teams traveling from around the U.S. and Canada, but even more spectacular are the sheep on loan, courtesy of Flat Top Sheep Co. During the summer months, their sheep grazed in the Pioneer Mountains above Sun Valley and are now coming down for winter.

The United States Border Collie Handlers Association governs the trialing world and sanctions the Trailing of the Sheep Festival Sheepdog Trials. Handlers are drawn to the Wood River Valley’s trial because the sheep are wild, and it’s more of a challenge than other dog trials.

“This year, we have 82 dogs, and handlers come from as far away as Canada, Florida, and New York,” explains Kelly Ware, the Trailing of the Sheep Festival United States Border Collie Handlers Association Trials’ Coordinator. “You cannot work sheep without border collies. They are an integral part of the sheep ranching culture. The dog trials at the Festival are incredible because they show attendees how sheep are handled.”

“The dogs are smart, and it’s amazing what they do,” says Ware. “Watching them and seeing their companionship with their handler is great fun. This event has been so popular because people get to be outside and utilize nature. We’re grazing the sheep and working dogs, and my dogs live to work sheep.”

partnership between handler and dog to control the sheep,” says Ware. “This is a challenging trial, so spectators will see some of the most experienced dogs and handlers in the nation. Even dogs seven or eight years old are still doing this.”

Grey muzzel dogs, known as GMs, are over eight years old and very smart but not necessarily as quick as younger dogs. “We start training at a year old,” says Ware. “The first three years are considered a nursery dog. These sheep are wily and tough and better for older dogs. Most of the sheep have never been worked by dogs. They have been up in the mountains left to wander with a drover. They are not used to any of this, including spectators. For these reasons, it’s a fun trial and a bucket list trial for handlers, and they love the beauty of these mountains and terrain.”

The Festival offers dog sponsorships and assigns each sponsor to a running dog for the Trials. In addition, the dog handlers participating in the trials help set up and orchestrate the course. Besides the beauty and amazing border collie technique on view, each day at the Trials will include traditional food from the Gooding Basque Association, beverages, Festival merchandise, and wares from over 30 vendors.


Traditions at the Festival run deep. Ever since the Trailing of the Sheep Festival Coordinator Xole Uranga was a little girl, she recalls having a big Basque dinner at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Hailey and dancing. “They opened up the Fair at Roberta McKercher Park, and the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church Basque lunch was the only food,” says Uranga. “I would help my mother make Basque rice and perform at the Fair. It’s always been a part of my life. Even when coming home from college, I would join my father to walk with the sheep at the Festival on Sunday in the parade. It’s a tradition, and as Festival Coordinator, I still walk with my father down Main Street.”

The Gooding Basques have always been at the dog Trials, one of the only places to enjoy traditional Basque food. It’s old-school Hailey and history, which connects the Festival and the sheep ranching heritage at the Trials. As the only vendors serving food at the trials, the Gooding Basques serve Basque rice, chorizo, assorted breads, and more.

“We are running out of locations,” says Uranga. “We are using the current site from the State of Idaho, and it’s an authentic location. With the ranchers trailing and facing climate change and wildfires, along with other elements, it is all a natural part of the Festival, which is why it is so celebrated and important.” 

Sun Valley’s Reflex Ski Poles are reborn

In Sun Valley, great ideas are born on tailgates in the Greyhawk parking lot and around pitchers of beer at Apple’s. Skiers finishing an afternoon of post-work shredding sit around reflecting on their runs and on what makes this sunny corner of the world unique. At least, that’s how Reflex Ski Poles were reborn in 2020 by friends and longtime locals Ben Verge, Jack Weekes, Charlie Dunn, Sean O’Connor, Joe Marx, Clint Lightner, Joel Bernbaum, and Tim Carter.

58 svpn- mag.c om
“We’re just trying to create a little bit of local lore, a little bit of history. And we’re not moving. We’re staying in Sun Valley.” 59
—Sean O’Connor

This year, Reflex Ski Poles will produce 4,000 pairs of poles—a giant leap from 500 in its first year. From their warehouse on Warm Springs Road, Reflex Ski Poles are sold in the Valley’s outdoor shops (where they’ve been selling out) and direct to consumers online.

“We’d love to see Reflex Ski Poles become a sustaining business that could employ some of us and other people. We’re growing each year.”

“It started with us sitting around and talking about the ski companies that started in Sun Valley and left,” says O’Connor, citing the departures in the last decade by Scott USA and Smith Optics that left a void in Ketchum’s professional working class and ski town culture.

The friends also joked about reviving Reflex—a company first launched in 1979 by Ben’s father, Gus Verge, along with Roger Roche, Lou Krieger, and Dick Marshall. The elder Verge had been working for Scott in the 1970s, overseeing the company’s ski pole manufacturing, before branching off to create his own product.

Reflex Ski Poles were first made in Ketchum’s industrial area before aluminum baseball maker Easton Sports took over manufacturing. Reflex sold to Easton in 1986, and the brand continued into the late ‘90s. Fast-forward to 2013, when many around Ketchum began watching as friends employed by Scott and Smith started moving away.

“That’s where a lot of our conversations started,” says O’Connor. “It’s hard to figure out how to stay here and make a living, and that morphed into: ‘What could we do? We could make ski poles, and Reflex is still out there.’”

The group didn’t know what bringing Reflex back would look like, but they decided to go for it.

60 svpn- mag.c om

At their headquarters in Warm Springs, Reflex Ski Poles has a collection of poles from every generation of the brand’s existence, from the vintage “Blue Racer” and “Exhibition” to the new 2023 lineup. Hundreds of poles dating back to 1979, and even an original Reflex mountain bike made by Easton, are now proudly displayed in the company’s offices.

Easton had let the trademark lapse, and the friends quickly retrieved it. “Then we said, ‘Oh shoot, now what do we do? We need to make some ski poles,’” O’Connor jokes.

Today’s Reflex Ski Poles are made of 7075-T6 aluminum alloy—a high-strength material known for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio—and incorporate tungsten carbide tips and Reflex’s “Lightning Pistol” grips. The line brings style to the slopes: from downhill models such as “The Diplomat” and “The Wasteoid” to adjustable uphill models like “The Trombone.”

“We made a point of making the poles as high-quality as we could,” says Verge.

The real difference, though, says O’Connor, is the vibe behind the brand. “It’s created by us in Sun Valley. The actual poles are made in Austria, but everything that’s done is done from a local perspective. We wanted to bring back a local brand and create a little bit of stoke in the industry.”

For seven of the company’s eight partners, Reflex is a side gig and labor of love for now, but it’s a growing enterprise. And a collaborative one. “We’d love to see Reflex become a sustaining business that could employ some of us and other people,” says Verge. “We’re growing each year.”

And the company is committed to creating jobs and staying put. “This is where we live,” Verge says. “It’s where we want to be. For the Valley and the ski community, it’s important to have brands that are based here because we’re one of the first ski areas in the country. We were losing that feel—that community—that this is where it started and where it used to all be. We’re proud of that.”

“At the end of the day, it’s a ski pole, but it’s a local company,” says O’Connor. “We’re just trying to create a little bit of local lore, a little bit of history. And we’re not moving. We’re staying in Sun Valley.” 

“My intention is that at the end of the journey, hopefully, the reader will end up in a place they never expected to be.”


In the Friction Zone with Scott Glenn


While Scott Glenn has embraced many different roles, on screen and off, his most prominent role and voice may just be as a poet. For Scott, poetry is essential, and with his second volume of work, Friction Zone, following Room Service, he has found his poetic sweet spot.

Glenn is an actor, marine, deputy sheriff, father, and grandfather, appearing in more than 80 films, television shows, and theater productions, including The Right Stuff, The Hunt for Red October, The Silence of the Lambs, Training Day, Marvel’s Daredevil and The Defenders, and the HBO series The Leftovers to name a few.

Unlike Room Service, written for and given to his wife of 50 years, ceramist and painter Carol Glenn, Friction Zone is for the rest of us. “The beauty of Room Service is that he gave those poems to me over a 50-year period,” adds Carol. “I had them in my drawer and wanted them to be a book to share.”

Most of Friction Zone, including the title poem “Friction Zone,” was written during the pandemic except for “Thailand Per Diem” and “Dangerous Locations,” which are both in sequence, while Scott and Carol were hunkered down in their Sun Valley home for two years. “It’s harder-edged,” says Scott. “And hopefully something to disturb everyone.”

A reflection of self or just observations, Friction Zone is poetry in which Scott has evoked his philosophical understandings through clear, tight, and poignant verses that everyone can receive for themselves. The sequence and flow of Friction Zone make a page-turner and the words will stay with you long after you put the book down.

“Each poem is a journey that begins with the title,” says Scott. “My intention is that at the end of the journey, hopefully, the reader will end up in a place they never expected to be.”

Scott points out that common things in our world that appear to be accepted should be examined more closely, as that’s not how we live, exist, or perhaps think. He offers some cautionary words in the poem “Side Effects,” where he writes:

Beware the “moderate-to-severe” moron. He may say

What you want to hear but ruin “cannot be ruled out” and pestilence and injustice “have happened.”

“My feeling about any art and for sure, however those words hit you, is how they are to you,” says Scott. “When you decide to put them in a book, they stand on their own. It’s the truth for me. More than once, when I have written something, it’s out there and released from me. It’s no longer mine.”

It’s essential for Scott to move out of the way of his work and let it exist. For him, freedom as an artist arrives when one is ready. “At 84, I am only beginning to figure out what acting in front of the camera is. It has taken me that long, and I have been acting for a long time. The enemy of performance is predictability. For me, it’s the opposite. It’s a one-act play called Right Now.”

Carol adds, “He never looks to see himself on the monitor after shooting a scene, as every actor does.”

Scott wants life to happen and lives in the moment with a look back only to recognize where he came from, and his poetry is another element of his art as an actor and poet. He wants to point out life’s happenings and share his observations so we can stop and take stock of our world today. Taking this ride with Scott is a journey he wants you to share with him.

“The gift of this book was given to me during the pandemic,” says Scott. “Carol and I had a creative time, and it produced some very good art to share. Poetry just happens for me. In some ways, I am preaching a little bit, but I am just making emotional observations. I care about it. I hope that someone will see an implicit question within this new collection of poetry, and the answer will be personal for them.” 

Wild Rye seeds inclusivity in women’s apparel

In 2014, Cassie Abel was working in global communications for Smith Optics in Ketchum. She’d grown up in the valley on and off and had finally achieved the magical feat of making a living in the place she loved. She often traveled to tradeshows, where she saw brands merging contemporary style and technical features for men but felt that something was missing for women’s apparel.

When Smith announced that their headquarters would soon be vacating to Portland, Oregon, Abel was forced to make a decision. She opted to stay in Idaho and consulted for other brands for a while before reconnecting with a colleague from Specialized Bicycle Components in the Bay Area.

“She was having a lot of the same thoughts that I was: how women deserved a better option, how we deserved something just for us, that apparel needed to be designed from the ground-up for women with specific materials and features,” says Abel.

In 2015, the two became partners and the next year launched Wild Rye—named for the hearty perennial grass that grows at high elevations in the Rocky Mountain West—a brand committed to bringing women+ (women, femme, and nonbinary identifying people) beautiful and technical mountain apparel. Their goal: to inspire confidence and get more women outside.

Cassie Abel
“My ultimate goal is to be the women’s outdoor brand of choice across categories of sport.”

—Cassie Abel

“We wanted to be relatable and approachable,” says Abel. “While we celebrate the women who are standing on podiums and at the tops of summits, we also wanted to create a narrative that was welcoming and unintimidating.”

Abel ultimately bought out her partner and grounded all operations in Ketchum. With an inclusive, no-one-size-fitsall approach, Wild Rye has helped bring women’s apparel— by women and for women—to the forefront of industry.

“For us, it starts with the materials,” says Abel. Instead of trying to create a product with materials that have long been used for men, her team chooses fabrics that are designed to stretch and move and fit the curves of women’s different sizes and body shapes.

The company has also been awarded for its sustainability practices in 2022, becoming B Corp certified for meeting high standards of performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices.

“We worked really hard to get there,” says Abel. “It emphasizes our commitment to our communities, our in-house people, and the planet.”


Wild Rye’s welcoming, empowering, bold, and fun message comes across in all they do: from fabrics and designs to events to supporting local nonprofits and other women-led projects. You’ll hear the Wild Rye team talking a lot about snack breaks and rides with friends, exercising, and enjoying fresh air. “Honestly, the reasons that most women do get outside,” she says.

They are also committed to staying in Ketchum and growing like wild rye here in Idaho. “The Smith departure had a really huge impact on me. I wanted to create something that would provide professional opportunities for young, ambitious people in the valley,” Abel says, noting how easy it is to sacrifice a career to stay in Sun Valley.

Today’s team of nine full-time employees is out producttesting daily—jumping on skis for an hour or trying out new apparel on the valley’s trails—showcasing just one more reason to keep Wild Rye local. And Abel is dreaming big. “My ultimate goal is to be the women’s outdoor brand of choice across categories of sport,” she shares.

Wild Rye is well on its way to that goal, with its products in outdoor stores across the country and with recognition from Outside Magazine ’s Gear of the Year awards. Like their namesake, these mountain natives are at home in Idaho, where they intend to grow. 

A space to create

Wood River Valley native Halsey Pierce is a photographer who took the road less traveled, guided by determination, authenticity, and a strong inner compass. Over her decadelong career working for herself, Halsey has shot everything from weddings and family photos to entire campaigns for internationally recognized brands. Her commercial experience covers high fashion, lifestyle, food, and product content, just to start.

72 svpn- mag.c om
74 svpn- mag.c om

Most recently, Halsey has opened her own photography studio in Ketchum’s light industrial area. The massive space doubles as a showroom for Studio Eleven, an event staging company that Halsey shares with her mom, Becca Pierce. Although Halsey has resourcefully used the Wood River Valley’s vibrant landscape as a backdrop for years, this new studio space allows her to shoot year-round without her lenses frosting over.

“I really want to create an option for people to shoot in the fall leaves or snow but also offer the ability to come back to the studio where we can create our own world,” she says. “It is a process of self-discovery and relationship-building between me and my client. I have to be able to bring them out of themselves. It’s awkward sitting in front of a blank background with a camera staring at you unless you’re having fun doing it.”

Documentation is Halsey’s impulse, but it is the beautiful illustration of precious moments and individual histories that is at the heart of what she does. “You’re left with so many photos after a shoot, but if there’s even just one photo that makes you stop and think afterward like it’s burned into your memory, that’s the photo I’m always striving to get for somebody. I think that’s the coolest thing to have as a timepiece for you and for your family. It’s like an heirloom.”

Looking back on how far she has come since striking out on her own early in her 20s, Halsey recounts, “I didn’t always know what I wanted to do, but I knew what I didn’t want to do.”

To her father’s dismay, this list included college. She followed her gut, ditched the sorority, moved to Los Angeles, dropped out of film school, and landed a gig as a production assistant. It wasn’t until she was running a food blog for another company in LA that someone finally put a camera in her hands.

“That was kind of the ah-ha moment. I realized taking photos was my favorite part of the job, so I started taking the camera home on the weekends,” Halsey shares. “Having it with me became a part of my daily routine. It started my obsession with photography, and I decided this is what I’m going to do.”

Halsey eventually followed her free spirit, passion, and her now-husband to New York City in 2018, where she really got her footing as a professional photographer. She broke into a whole new scene and learned how to market herself while exploring different aptitudes of her craft.

Now firmly rooted back in Ketchum, Halsey has returned home with extensive experience and confidence from her colorful travels. She continues to push herself to grow as an artist and is currently working on a passion project entitled Past Lives, which is a series of photographs combining “old things with old places.” The series features vintage clothing passed down from generations within her family, modeled and situated amidst iconic locations in Idaho. She aims to portray and pass on the same nostalgia and significance she holds for these items, just as her family has done for her.

Now firmly rooted back in Ketchum, Halsey has returned home with extensive experience and confidence from her colorful travels.

“A lot of times, as a photographer, you have to pinhole yourself. You’re either a wedding photographer or a brand photographer, etc., but because my background is so broad and I’ve truly shot everything, I now feel comfortable shooting everything,” says Halsey.

With a brick-and-mortar operation and two complementary businesses, the creative opportunities are endless. Halsey welcomes everyone to stop by and check out the studio or reach out for more details on what Halsey Pierce Photography and Studio Eleven offer. 

SVFF expands education and outreach programs

Year after year, Sun Valley Film Festival’s (SVFF) tentpole event is a source of magic in the Valley known for indie films, lauded talent, and fabulous parties. The Festival is beloved by so many because the cultural fabric of Sun Valley is embedded in its DNA. As the organization grows its reach, SVFF becomes equally central to the community. This year has been monumental for SVFF’s off-season growth; the year-round programming calendar has brought a regular flow of fresh films with the SVFF Monthly Movie series at The Argyros.

Ahead of the 13th annual Festival, SVFF Executive Director Teddy Grennan and Festival Director Candice Pate sat down to determine how to further SVFF’s role as a cultural stimulant in the Valley. The answer was clear: double down their commitment to the community by expanding the Sun Valley Film Initiative (SVFI). Thus, the Festival has spent much of the off-season directing significant attention and resources towards re-imaging its education and outreach program.

SVFI delivers educational programming, practical and financial assistance, and transformative opportunities for emerging artists. As they looked

“It’s amazing to see this community’s dedication to the advancement of filmmaking as an industry and their desire to learn, and it is our ultimate goal to deliver those outcomes.” 79
—Candice Pate

to the future of the Initiative, Grennan and Pate considered feedback from artists and festivalgoers alike. “We recognized a desire from this community for more education-oriented programming and a real appreciation for the work we do with emerging filmmakers, so we took a hard look at the programs we already have, like the SVJr. Competition and High Scribe Competition and Screenwriters Lab, and we considered how those can grow and what new and exciting things we can bring to the table,” says Festival Director Candice Pate.

Grennan and Pate’s first order of business was considering the events that have achieved great success in education and outreach at the Festival and using them as a jumping-

off point to grow the scope of SVFI. Two programs expanding their reach this year, SVJr. Film and High Scribe are derived from existing events that are now being grown to help emerging filmmakers realize their potential and execute projects to a higher level.

Sun Valley Jr. Film (SVJr. Film) highlights the talents of high school students across the country and gives them the practical and technical resources to pursue careers in film. This year, the program is expanding the SVJr. Short Film Competition event to include Short Form Video competition, workshops, and other robust experiences for 2024 Festival finalists. SVJr. Film plans to launch a series of skill-building workshops for student filmmakers year-round, and students

will have opportunities to intern with the Festival as part of SVJr. Film’s Production Assistant program. In growing SVJr. Film, SVFI hopes to ignite a passion for filmmaking in students of all ages and prepare them for a career in the entertainment industry.

Working with other local nonprofit organizations maximizes the benefits of educational programming for the community as a whole. In this spirit, SVFI is thrilled to partner with The Community Library for screenwriter-centric High Scribe programming. This collaboration will include a week-long Residency for the winner of the High Scribe Competition at the historic Hemingway House. The Community Library’s support is creating opportunities for High Scribe to grow events like the Screenwriters Lab and introduce new elements of programming, including the High Scribe Script Club. Most importantly, it enables SVFI to bring talent to Sun Valley to share their gifts with the next generation.

In addition to expanding these beloved events into impactful programming, SVFI seeks support for new programming. Notably on the agenda is the SVFI College Fellowship program. This fellowship is an educational experience for university film students to experience a customized level of participation at the Festival to build their network and prepare for a future in the entertainment industry. Debuting at the upcoming Film Festival in February is the new SVFI programming asset ‘Shop Talks.’ This new SVFI discussion series features panels curated by filmmakers to educate audiences about industry topics and technical aspects of filmmaking. “It’s amazing to see this community’s dedication to the advancement of filmmaking as an industry and their desire to learn, and it is our ultimate goal to deliver those outcomes,” remarks Pate of the new developments. 

Daily shelter operations tell a life’s story

Mountain Humane is not your typical animal shelter. Or at least not what most people envision before they visit. Mountain Humane is an animal welfare campus providing program services to Wood River Valley residents, their animals, and the rural communities that surround us. What might seem like an adoption center for homeless animals to some is actually a conglomeration of life-saving programs centered around celebrating the human-animal bond by serving people and companion animals alike. New problems in animal welfare have our campus utilizing every corner of the building and every available worker to provide this care and access to the program services. Animals plucked from overpopulation, neglect, abuse, or found at-large will always have a place at Mountain Humane, 365 days a year. But how we manage these new needs is evolving every day. And how we measure success has changed, too.

It’s 7am at the Mountain Humane campus, and our frontline staff are boots on the ground.



Next—prepare their morning feeding. One size does not fit all. Food is prepared on so many different levels! Puppies, adult dogs, overweight dogs, and special diet dogs all receive their own special food.

Daily observation of all animals for wellness—any animal showing signs of potential medical issues is written into the day’s medical schedule.

They do not start their day checking emails and voicemails, scheduling meet and greets, and processing adoptions before hours of taking care of the cats in our custody.

August 1, 2023, morning animal count:

DOGS | 43 in custody | 29 on property | 14 in foster

CATS | 78 in custody | 44 on property | 34 in foster


Mountain Humane gets asked all the time, “So, how many animals do you have?” And although the answer is simple, typically over 100 on any given day, it is one that deserves the longer answer. Our clinic might see another 30 or more in a day. We might also have another dozen or so mama cats and kittens on their way to us from an underserved regional shelter overflowing with animals. Or a couple of stray dogs or cats come in, and owners are nowhere to be found. That “hundred” quickly becomes 150 in a matter of hours, which has teams at Mountain Humane constantly caring and pathway planning for everyone regardless of their needs.

That’s a lot of animals to walk, feed, cuddle, and clean up after, and between the staff and volunteers, our goal is to walk the doggies on-site three times daily. We rotate dogs into the play yards all day and, in the summer, out to the splash park!

Early enough to digest their food before their last walk of the day.


There are the kennels, the play yards, the acquaintance rooms, the lobby, pathways, and the hallways. Do you know how much pet hair moves around this 30,000-square-foot facility on any given day? And—windows!

Can you imagine the mess cats and dogs can do to windows and doors on an hourly basis? Our kennel staff, adoption staff, and facilities staff are part-time window cleaners!

A silent army of one or two individuals checking in animals arriving for medical procedures or greeting animal control that is bringing in an animal found at-large. The daily phone work of intake is commendable, to say the least. They are answering calls for lost animals, citizens who need help, and other animal welfare organizations asking us to take transfers from their overcrowded facilities.

Intake Manager Megan McCauley and Adoption Counselor Kadi McGinnis


All those volunteers and foster families are guided daily by our amazing Volunteer and Foster Coordinators. Volunteers need to be scheduled. Foster families are constantly checked on, and supplies need to be prepared for them. We could not care for the number of kittens and puppies in our custody if not for our amazing foster network.

Community Outreach services that include using innovative strategies and fresh approaches designed to extend the reach of animal care services, resources, and information to neighboring rural and underserved areas. The program addresses the critical need for accessible, affordable pet care by empowering the people who care for them.


Our management team is always at work for Mountain Humane on so many levels. While we work to make certain that all MH programs are funded, we support our frontline workers every day to pick up the slack when there are staffing shortages or when there is a call to help with cleaning or dog walking. After all, we are here for the animals.

People become animal shelter workers or partners because they genuinely enjoy working with animals. Through their interaction, they learn the importance of kindness and responsibility and how even one person can make a difference. Saving lives is the greatest gift of all, so we give four paws up to these amazing people! 


Let’s not forget to give homage to our Behavior Department, which helps the animals in our care struggling with kennel life, but also adoptees AND the members of our community who come to us for basic training and behavior support.

Moving here almost 15 years ago as a professional ski racer, I appreciated the relative low cost and ease of air travel for all my racing trips, and now as a local commercial real estate professional I see the strong economic impact of quality air service on the local communities. I am proud to partner with FSVA through the Realtors for Air program as it is important to continue to support reliable air service to help sustain local businesses, as well as for the community at large, who generally love to travel and see the world outside the Wood River Valley but always want to come back home - I know I sure do.”

The Sawtooth Valley at its best

132 svpn- mag.c om
A lake
Stanley, Idaho.

If you spent your summer traveling around the West, the country, or even across the pond, fall is now calling from the Sawtooth Valley and mountains. It is the perfect time of year for a little respite during the beautiful exchange of seasons. You might even have everything much to yourself, like area hot springs, the Milky Way, and lakefront beaches. It’s also the perfect time to hike and photograph the ombre color run of photosynthesis as the days get shorter and colder. And it’s the perfect time for exploring ghost town remains and following dirt roads to nowhere. Any way you look at it, exploring this crown jewel of central Idaho in late fall is the best of all.

The 4.5-mile, 6.5-foot-wide public gravel trail connecting Stanley to the Redfish Lake Trail was completed this past summer, allowing for non-motorized traffic in the summer and snow machines in the winter at the foot of the


Sawtooth Mountains. E-bikes, which are categorized by the Forest Service as motorized vehicles, are not allowed. The path runs from Pioneer Park in Stanley to Redfish Lake Road and is accessible to people with disabilities, including those in wheelchairs. The trail is also accessible from the Stanley Ranger Station. An idea first conceived decades ago, the trail provides an alternative to walking or biking along State Highway 75 and provides the opportunity for those staying in Stanley to bike to Redfish Lake, eliminating the hunt for a parking spot.

Check out Smiley Creek for available fall hunting and exploring accommodations. They are planning to provide rustic lodging through the hunting season. When winter settles on the landscape, snowmobiling is king here, with additional opportunities for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. You can follow the groomed trails or easily get off the beaten path. The lodge offers the latest SkiDoo sleds for rent and guides for extra riding tips or just to explore with and learn about the area’s history.

Over at Mountain Village Resort (MVR), the fun never sets, from taco nights to football games on the big screen to karaoke and Thursday movie nights—

6pm for kid-friendly, and 8pm for adults. Follow @ mountainvillage_resort on Instagram for incredible regular dinner features worth the drive over the summit.

MVR hosts their annual Halloween Party (21+) on October 28, starting at 9pm, with a costume contest, games, and prizes. Kids can enjoy a “trunk & treat.”

On New Year’s Eve, expect more fun with door prizes, a free champagne toast at midnight, and an amazing fireworks show, compliments of Stanley Construction.

Redfish Lake Lodge closes on October 15. For a few more weeks, come experience the lake at its most tranquil time. Limbert’s serves their incredible breakfasts from 7am to noon, featuring healthy fruit, house-baked granola, and even grilled Idaho trout and chorizo. Enjoy your meal with one of their many beverage options, including their special Redfish Blend coffee and espresso. Even at its most peaceful, resort adventures continue until closing day, so there’s still time for a Sunset Appetizer Cruise or lake tour, bike rentals, hiking, marina rentals, horseback riding, and boating. 

Transformation is possible

Our bodies are designed for constant movement and engagement, and the value of a pain-free body may be the gold standard of a healthy and happy life. Pain can hinder our ability to fully experience life’s joys and challenges. The journey towards a pain-free body is not about temporarily relieving discomfort, it’s about unlocking our true human potential of vitality, well-being, and limitless health. The prevalence of pain and joint replacements in our current time is a concern that calls for innovative solutions to prevent injury, enhance joint health, and foster overall well-being. Within this context, two transformative modalities stand out: Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy.

Chronic pain can cast a shadow on our mood and mental/emotional well-being, affecting our relationships, careers, and quality of life. A pain-free body allows us to move with grace, exploring our lives without hesitation and with full confidence. A pain-free body restores our connection to the sheer joy of movement.

The mind and body are intertwined in deep levels. Chronic pain can lead to depression, anxiety, and helplessness. With no pain, the mind is free to focus on positivity, growth, and self-discovery.

142 svpn- mag.c om

“By correcting ‘turned off’ muscles through targeted touch, the AMIT method reactivates these muscles and eliminates pain.”

We have solutions to a pain-free body that are readily attainable a pain-free body is a powerful conduit to a life enriched with vibrancy and well-being. The AMIT method is a technique that realizes miracles for our clients every single day. It is a solution that offers natural and permanent pain relief. Driven by the vision of Dr. Craig Buhler, this technique addresses the root causes of pain by restoring inhibited muscles that have been shut down due to injury or overload. Once corrected, the pain vanishes. Kids with sprained ankles go back to soccer or basketball practice, typically that day. Lower back pain vanishes, ankle pain and instability end immediately, range of motion increases, hiking resumes, shoulders are restored, and the body continues to strengthen with exercise. By correcting “turned off” muscles through targeted touch, the AMIT method reactivates these muscles and eliminates pain. Individuals experience immediate relief and begin their journey toward a pain-free, fluid, strong body.

PEMF therapy delivers magnetic pulses to every cell in the body. PEMF facilitates oxygenation, reduces inflammation, corrects cellular polarity, and energizes cells.

It’s a lifestyle change

Food is a cornerstone of our world. Whether you are trying to lose a few pounds, trying to stave off diabetes or heart disease, or you’re just trying to stay fit and able to ski all day at 100 years old, it’s likely you spend some time thinking about what you should be eating. I often get asked what diet I recommend, which turns out to be a much more complicated answer than expected.

There are obviously a huge number of diet plans in books and online, all proclaiming that theirs is “the way.” Be it intermittent fasting, the Atkins diet, or the asparagus diet (probably not a thing, but hard to be sure…), there is usually a healthy way to utilize the diet that can achieve your goals, but there is also an unhealthy way to stick to the diet that is unlikely to achieve the desired outcome. As an oversimplified example, a vegan diet may consist of a varied diet of beans, fruit, and vegetables and be very heart-healthy, or it can consist entirely of Oreos deep-fried in coconut milk and be less optimal for those heart vessels. In the end, I don’t strongly advocate for any one plan. However, if pressed, I suggest the Mediterranean, DASH, or vegetarian/vegan diet because they all have been studied and found to reduce rates of heart disease.

I don’t recommend following the “rules” of any particular diet because it is hard to make such a significant change all at once and even harder to maintain the change. This brings us to my number-one rule: Don’t think of this as a temporary diet; think of this as a lifestyle change or a change in your habits. Dietary changes usually have

“I don’t recommend following the ‘rules’ of any particular diet because it is hard to make such a significant change all at once and even harder to maintain the change.”

—Tyler Reinking, MD

their most significant impact years down the road. You may start to see markers, such as your hemoglobin A1c (blood sugars) or LDL (cholesterol), change within months, but in the end, it’s not your cholesterol level that people genuinely care about; it’s whether or not you have a heart attack that matters. Further, if your goal is weight loss, any plan that has you losing a large amount of weight immediately is very rewarding initially. Still, it is generally not healthy and is prone to a rebound weight gain once this unsustainable plan stops being followed.

From what I’ve seen, those most successful with the lifestyle change have a few things in common: a family member or friend is involved, the specific modifications made are their choice, and the specific changes made are often stepwise with small changes at any one time. In terms of getting someone else involved, telling a friend that you are making this change is great: they can keep you accountable. Family members can be even stronger motivators when they make the change with you. Eating healthier together becomes exponentially more likely to succeed than going at it alone.

Next, each person should look at their eating patterns and decide where they can change in a way that is reasonable. I shouldn’t be the one to tell you to completely cut out bacon if bacon is going to be hard to cut out without decreasing your quality of life. Further, as I stated, this usually is best if it is a small change. Certainly, if you are doing well with your small change, build on it in a couple of months, but I rarely see success when people try to go from a diet based around pepperoni pizza to a Mediterranean diet overnight. Make it a goal to add a salad or other vegetable to your dinner.

You may notice that the goal I mentioned above focuses on adding healthy food. It is easier to reduce unhealthy foods if you know what you are filling your stomach with instead. Eliminating foods without planning what you will do is a much harder ambition. If you decide that you would benefit from cutting back on food that you like but know is less nutritious, I suggest cutting off the supply chain. It is easy to allow yourself to have a handful of chips or several handfuls of chips when the bag is right there by your workspace or in your cupboard. If you are like me, it is much easier to cut myself off at the grocery store. Buy less or none at all (And maybe find a healthier food to snack on?), and this tends to be more effective than selfcontrol once the food is in your possession.

146 svpn- mag.c om
Family members can be even stronger motivators when they make the change with you.

The question remains: What are healthy foods that I recommend? I don’t tend to focus solely on the macronutrients; in other words, I don’t think that fats are the enemy or that carbs go straight to your hips. I agree with the sentiment that protein is important, but it is generally very easy to get enough protein (yes, even if you are trying to build muscle mass). Instead, I tend to focus on eating a variety of whole foods. This means shopping in the produce section and, while you’re there, look for colors. It is no coincidence that dark or colorful foods tend to have the most nutrients: In fact, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are often the source of the color. The produce section gets a little tricky when watching blood sugars, though. Fructose (of the dreaded “high fructose corn syrup”) is a building block of sugar found in all fruits. Particularly, sweet fruits like bananas and berries

tend to elevate sugars the most. Therefore, when watching blood sugars, focus more on the vegetables than the fruits.

In the aisles, when looking at bread and grains, look for the “whole grain” variety: whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, long grain rice, etc. These come with more fiber, which will fill you up, blunt the rise in blood sugars, and keep your bowels moving, among other benefits. There are many reasons, environmental and health, to consider a vegetarian diet. Still, if you venture into the meat department, I recommend less-processed options: chicken breasts, steaks, etc., rather than deli meats, bacon, salami, etc. Finally, many cultures with the longest life expectancies have a diet based around legumes. I advocate for using beans: kidney, black, garbanzo, lentils, split peas, you name it. These little wonders are full of protein, fiber (see benefits above), often iron, and other minerals, and they are generally less expensive than other protein sources.

Could I shorten my lecture? I would certainly lose nuances, but some key take-homes are:

1. Don’t “diet” change your habits for long-term benefits.

2. Make small changes.

3. Include your household, or at least tell someone your goal.

4. Focus on adding healthy foods, which will inevitably replace unhealthier ones.

5. Eat whole foods: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. 

New Townhomes Coming to Elkhorn Village

By the spring of 2024, the first nine units of the 42-unit Sunshine Townhomes project in Sun Valley will be ready for occupancy. Sunshine is situated in the core of Elkhorn Village and represents the only new real estate development in the City of Sun Valley. The townhomes feature state-of-the-art construction, clean lines, open floor plans, and the warmth of natural timber and stone. The floor plans range from two to five bedrooms and include attached garages, central air conditioning, beautiful outdoor spaces, and expansive mountain views.

152 svpn- mag.c om

Sunshine is being developed by Timberline Real Estate Partners, an Austin, Texas-based developer and general contractor with decades of experience in the luxury real estate market. The company’s project portfolio includes, among other things, residential, mixed-use, and boutique hospitality properties across the country. Stan Nix, CEO of Timberline, notes to SVPN Magazine, “Timberline and its principals have invested in the Wood River Valley for over 20 years. It is a gem in the Mountain West, and we’re excited to use our experience and exacting standards to deliver unique projects to the area for many years to come.”

This summer, Timberline selected Keller Williams Sun Valley agents Grady and Heather Burnett as the dedicated sales team for the Sunshine project. With their combined 40 years of real estate sales experience, along with their affection for and connection to the Elkhorn and Sun Valley communities, Grady and Heather are perfectly suited to market and sell these luxury properties. “We are excited to embark upon this new partnership with Timberline,” says Grady. “As longtime Sun Valley residents and Elkhorn homeowners ourselves, we’re thrilled to represent one of the last development projects in Elkhorn.” 

Reservations for the first two phases of Sunshine Townhomes are now available. Please contact Grady and Heather at 208.720.0906 with questions or to arrange a showing, or visit SUNSHINE-SUN VALLEY.COM for more information.



Ketchum Construction Booms in 2022 & 2023

SVPN MAGAZINE 154 svpn- mag.c om

In my last SVPN Magazine Commercial Market Update, I focused on the South Valley. In this update, I’ll summarize my view on commercial activity, primarily in Ketchum. As always, I’m an optimist about our valley economy. I like to look at the things that factor into our future. I look at local trends but also the macroeconomic conditions that I believe play a role in our area.

Over the years, I’ve seen real estate cycles in the valley take a common path. Commercial real estate activity follows the high-paced residential real estate “frenzy.” That activity that drove residential prices to record highs inspires commercial developers and investors to take on the projects that they have had on hold because they can see the potential of this market. They now feel that “this place is happening.” The commercial investment and development are readily apparent as you look around town.

Ketchum’s former Director of Planning & Building, Suzanne Frick, put it this way, “When the pandemic hit, we saw an explosion of residential development, both construction of new units and remodeling of current ones. Now, we’re seeing many of the vacant lots in the community core district of Ketchum becoming the subject of development interest for larger projects.”

Idaho Business Review ’s Ronald Diamond says, “Roughly 20% of family office portfolios are dedicated to real estate.” Real estate has been a mainstay and will continue to grow. Family office allocations to real estate are expected to go up. The biggest advantage is that family office investment is

more patient than venture capital. We are definitely seeing this in the Sun Valley area. Many high-net-worth investors and family offices are hunting for assets in secondary and tertiary markets rather than in supercompetitive “gateway” cities. By and large, high-net-worth investors and family offices have a better grasp of local markets—most notably non-gateway markets, and resort markets are more in their comfort zone, especially for those who have personal histories and connections here in Sun Valley.

We are also seeing that as construction costs rise year-over-year and development land becomes increasingly scarce, investors are incentivized to acquire existing assets at a discount to replacement costs. Investors in our market are more tolerant of rising interest rates in that they have more access to cash for their real estate investments. Since sale prices have not declined, many investors are looking for properties where the potential for rent increases is higher, providing future upside.

From Western Real Estate Business

December 2022, “Interest rates are national, but rental rates are local.” There’s another measure of the local economic health we are experiencing. The Idaho Mountain Express says that early-summer Local Option Tax (LOT) data shows success and promise. In Ketchum, early returns May through July local-option-tax receipts indicate a successful summer business season, with totals up from last year. Last winter saw an even more significant year-over-year change, with receipts increasing 21% in December, 10% in January, and 11% in February.

Private and public development continues throughout the city


Sun Valley Road & First Street

Formerly Antique Alley, the 11,000-square-foot building has one business unit on the ground floor and two each on the second and third floors. The building will house five local companies. Engel and Völkers Real Estate on ground level, a private office, KMV Builders, the building contractor, interior designer Jennifer Hoey’s Suede Studio, designing the interior of the building, and Farmer Payne Architects, which designed the building.

Bluebird Village Community Housing

480 North East Avenue

This community housing project was proposed in 2018 and received final approval in 2021. The total project costs rose from $21.9 million to $25.7 million between August 2020 and February 2022 due to inflation. The project consists of two buildings with maximum heights of about 51 and 49 feet. The top three

floors are deed-restricted residential units, including a combination of studio, onebedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units that are between 460 to 1,100 square feet, creating 51 units. The ground floor will include two or three commercial spaces for office or retail use, parking stalls, and bicycle spaces.

Mountain Land Design Building

This building has commercial ground floor space, one second floor market-rate unit, one third floor penthouse, and one community housing unit.


The luxury, culinary-focused hotel proposed for the southeast corner of Main and River Streets is a 149,325 gross-squarefoot, fully approved 4.5-star lodging property with 79 hotel and lock-off rooms and 12 penthouse, single-level residences on the hotel’s top two floors. The project also includes an Appellation bespoke full-service restaurant and bar, a wellness-focused spa and fitness center, an exterior swimming pool and thermal pool, a full-service banquet room for weddings and special events, various meeting spaces, and a fully automated observatory tower with public terrace for viewing the Wood River Valley’s Dark Sky Preserve. Plans call for two-plus levels of underground parking providing 110 car spaces, which include mechanical stacking parking systems, valet parking services, and ADA-accessible and EV-charging parking spaces. Appellation Hotels is a food and beverage-centric, boutique hotel management company founded by renowned restaurateur Charlie Palmer and Christopher Hunsberger, longtime Four Seasons Resorts and


Hotels senior executive. The project is being developed by Harriman Ketchum Hotel, LLC. Longtime developer and resident of Ketchum, Jack Bariteau, is the company’s managing member. The company’s primary majority investor is Andrew Blank. Andy’s parents, Jerry and Joan Blank, came to Sun Valley in 1972, and Jerry, Andy’s father, still resides in the family home in Sun Valley. The Appellation development is the first lodging property to meet the City of Ketchum’s housing requirement with the recent construction and completion of First and Fourth, a mixed-use 38,000-square-foot three-story building located at 100 Fourth Street West (see below).


This recently completed mixed-use project includes seven condominium residences, approximately 7,000 square feet of leased office space, an underground parking garage with 31 spaces, and 15 employee and community housing apartments ranging in size from 600 to 800 square feet. All but one of the 15 apartments are now rented under Blaine County Housing Authority Category 4 and 5 income level guidelines. Upon the hotel’s completion, estimated for Q4 of 2025, 12 of the 15 apartments will be master leased for occupancy by at least 18 employees of the hotel.

Another major project that is pending is the Marriottaffiliated four-story hotel project, originally proposed by Utah-based PEG Companies in 2019, which will be just south of the Limelight Hotel. The 128,000-square-footplus structure will have 92 rooms. The plans show it as 72 feet at its highest point and 48 feet above River Street and include three below-grade floors, providing storage space, parking, some guest rooms, and employee housing. Plans also include a rooftop bar.

The former Formula Sports site at 460 Main Street broke ground in the summer. The approximately 24,000-squarefoot commercial and residential building will include

two large retail spaces on the ground floor, four communityhousing units, and four market-rate residential units, as well as eight off-street parking spaces.

The Fourth Avenue and Main project (called “Hot Dog Hill” by locals) will be a 22,000-square-foot structure with three retail spaces, five market-rate residential units with private garages, and two workforce housing units.

On the corner at 211 Leadville (behind Serva), construction has begun on a two-floor commercial building with a restaurant on the ground floor and offices on the second. Across the street to the east, construction has begun on that corner as well. This three-story mixed-use project, called the 208 Building, will include ground-floor commercial, three market-rate residential units, and a top-floor penthouse.

The 26 units atop the Limelight Condominiums on Warm Springs Road are being rebuilt after the fire that destroyed them a little over a year ago. The original subterranean structure built in the 1970s was salvaged in the fire.


Last October, the City Council enacted the one-year interim Ordinance 1234 to set new development rules. The ordinance addresses minimum residential-density standards, prohibiting net loss of units, limiting the ability to consolidate lots, adding retail and office parking exemptions, and enacting various rules aimed at making sure designs “conform with the comprehensive plan,” according to Ketchum Senior Planner Morgan Landers. The fifth provision allows the city to regulate minimum commercial square-footage amounts in mixed-use projects, the maximum size of individual residential units, limitations on exceeding parking minimums (except for public or community-housing parking), and ban below-grade community-housing units. The city has been and will continue to track development trends and continue to hold frequent discussions with the “development community”—builders and architects—in order to monitor the ordinance’s effects.

Like many other resort communities, the Wood River Valley faces serious housing issues for individuals that are very important for a thriving economy and a socially well-rounded community. Workforce housing and affordable housing are two distinct categories, but they are equally important and critical for our future. The folks who mow lawns, wait tables, and tune skis often end up living two or three towns away from the resort, and even then, they may have trouble finding housing. This also applies to many of our teachers, nurses, first responders, and other professionals. The workforce housing crunch at resorts was a reality even before VRBO, and Airbnb added to the trend. In the “old days,” resort workers were able to live in town, even if they shared their condo or apartment with other workers. It has been estimated by Ketchum that there’s a need to develop, preserve, or convert 660 to 980 affordable housing units over the next decade.

On a positive note, the Silvercreek Living Facility in Hailey has been repurposed and is fully occupied by the local workforce, filling all 32 rooms. The buyer, who has the property under contract right now, plans to continue that use. The 51 affordable units at Bluebird Village and a number of workforce projects that have been, and are planned, in Hailey are all encouraging.

The last two years have been exceptional for real estate in the Valley, both commercial and residential. I remain bullish on real estate, especially in the commercial sector, in the coming 12 months. 

Renowned Plein Air painter Robert Moore serves as an inspiration and mentor to many accomplished painters. His technique involves applying a multitude of oil hues onto his canvas and then working a palette knife with both hands until his composition emerges from the apparent chaos of texture and color. The process is all the more extraordinary, given the fact that Moore suffers from partial color blindness.

A longtime favorite of our clients, Steven Adams strives in his work to portray the elusive feeling of timelessness beneath objects that might otherwise seem commonplace. Preferring to paint a broken fence or a ditch to a majestic

Gilman Contemporary

Exhibiting artists who hail from around the globe, Gilman Contemporary has become a place of discovery. This fall, Gilman presents two artists who explore botanicals in two very different ways, photographer Paulette Tavormina and painter Frances McCormack. Paulette Tavormina lives and works in New York City and Connecticut. Amidst the bustle that defines the city and the tranquility of the country orchards, she can often be found searching for the perfectly imperfect flora that characterize her photographs. Her arrangements often recall the sumptuous detail of 17th-century Old Master still-life painters and serve as intensely personal interpretations of timeless, universal stories. With a painterly perspective reminiscent of Francisco de Zurbarán, Adriaen Coorte, Juan Sánchez Cotán, and Giovanna Garzoni, Tavormina creates worldly still lifes.

Frances McCormack’s collage botanical studies, as well as her oil paintings, explore invented spaces that represent the process of growth and transformation. The inspiration for these places has come from the walled gardens in Rome at the Villa D’Este and Villa Lante, at the Alhambra in Spain, or the Topkai Palace in Istanbul.

“These places provide a container where the urgency and noise of everyday obligations fall away, and the visitor has access to other dimensions of thought and feeling,” says McCormack.

Best of the West

Best of the West is a group show of gallery artists with an array of subjects and interpretations of the American West, historical through contemporary. Displaying vintage photographs from Edward Curtis’ 30-year project “The North American Indian” (1898 –1928) across the board to Western pop works from Andy Warhol’s “Cowboys and Indians” series (1986).

Other artist works include David Yarrow’s large-scale photographic works that often evoke a feeling of curiosity, laughter, and awe with their spectacular backgrounds, recognizable models, eccentric western characters, and trained animals.

The gallery is also highlighting recent acquisitions of paintings by Russell Chatham. In viewing a Chatham painting, one typically gets a feeling of recognition of place. What is actually revealed is a feeling, a sense of emotion that goes deeper than the visual mind.

Other works will be on display by gallery artists: Bill Barrett, Emil Bisttram, Rudi Broschofsky, Jim Dine, Joellyn Duesberry, Ewoud de Groot, William Matthews, Joan Mitchell, Ken Peloke, Billy Schenck, Theodore Villa, Russell Young, and more.

OCHI Ben Sanders

The art of Ben Sanders is just being an artist. Every interest or activity shapes his artistic practice and contributes to an ever-expanding umbrella of aesthetic value. Gardening, cooking, collecting, painting, parenting, bartending—arguably, any action executed with intention may be performance and/or is art. Raised in a Southern California environment that celebrated art in service of a story, mood, or feeling, Sanders spent much of his childhood in his dad’s workshop, where Hollywood sets were designed and fabricated. Sanders’ bodies of work include paintings of food, drinks, logos, and other found design imagery, bonsai, gardens, and post-human landscapes—all of which may be painted on terracotta planting pots, enlarged metal bottle caps, gallery stationary, and on more traditional supports like canvas and wood panel.

Ben Sanders’ latest paintings are striking scenes of highly-rendered earthscapes that offer visions of a post-human future. Colossal bioorganic and mineral masses form and hover over limitless seas, desert planes, cloud banks, icy-slick expanses, and perfectly peaked mountain ranges. Sanders’ subjects appear to radiate, drip, sublimate, condense, or erode, unblemished and still in deafening silence. This transformation of matter into massive sentience evolves in the absence of beauty and morality—since human consciousness represented the sole interest in measuring aesthetic perfection or determining good from evil.

Sun Valley Museum of Art


September 15-December 2

Living through the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans developed a new relationship to the night sky, looking to the stars for connection at a time of isolation. Located in rural Idaho, the number-one state per capita for UFO sightings, Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) sits at the edge of the 1,416-square-mile Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve. Motivated by this geography and by local lore surrounding the possibility of extraterrestrial life, SVMoA’s fall exhibition considers our human experience of UFOs and the extraterrestrial. Rather than ask what those who

report UFO sightings have actually seen, the exhibition asks why we look to the night skies for signs of life and how we experience phenomena we can’t explain. Featuring commissioned projects by artists Deb Sokolow and Cable Griffith alongside work by Karla Knight, Robyn O’Neil, Lonel Talpazan, Esther Pearl Watson, and Timothy Wyllie.

Color VII

This exhibition is composed of paintings, works on paper, and sculpture characterized by powerful hues. Artists like Raphaëlle Goethals and Rana Rochat use encaustic, or pigmented wax, in different ways to create deeply saturated abstract works of art. Marcia Myers utilizes natural pigments and broad color fields to capture the essence of Italian Fresco in a modern fashion. Gary Komarin, a master of post-painterly abstraction, has been at the forefront of contemporary art with a bold, expressionistic style.

Honoring Our Landscape XII

This group exhibition explores the artistic interpretation of our lands by nationally renowned painters, photographers, and sculptors. This includes work by Victoria Adams, whose carefully rendered oils recall the majesty and unadulterated landscapes of the Hudson River School. James Cook’s thickly painted oils are an epic and expressive vision of the Sawtooths and surrounding mountain ranges, rushing rivers, and babbling brooks of the West. Michael Gregory’s iconic paintings of barns and homesteads reflect on the beauty of isolation found in the Western American landscape. Additional artists featured in the show include Theodore Waddell, Sheila Gardner, Divit Cardoza, and Berkeley Hoerr, among others.


Robert McCauley

A solo exhibition features new paintings by Robert McCauley, inspired by his Native American artifact collection. Over the last 35 years, McCauley has expertly honed his depictions of Western wildlife, such as trout, bears, deer, and moose. Though his style is rooted in the tradition of 19th-century American Romanticism, his narratives are contemporary, timely, and relevant. McCauley addresses themes and issues of cultures in collision, environmental ethics, and humankind’s impact on other species.

Hemmings Gallery

Monotypes, drawings, and paintings


Land, water, mountains, and deserts are what inspire Frances B. Ashforth. Her passion for fly fishing and time spent in remote places has allowed her to experience sparsely populated and wild lands across the United States. In her latest exhibit, “Lay of the Land,” at Hemmings Gallery, Ashforth’s spare paintings, drawings, and waterbase monotypes reflect the geography and geology of intersecting habitats that she has visited and studied.

She often orients her compositions along a strong horizon line, exploring its relationships within land, water, and sky. Ashforth states, “I am acutely aware of the tension and balance within that line. Weather patterns and time of day temper this balance and translate to composition.” She manipulates light, perspective, and contrasts within the elements of the studied habitats. Her work can appear deceptively simple and spare, yet by focusing on the details and editing the composition, Ashforth’s work evokes memory and knowledge that can only evolve from the focused study of a particular landscape.

Various Artists



Curated selection of monotypes from Aurobora fine art studio’s archive. Includes non-editioned, unique works on paper by leading artists such as Yunhee Min, Lynda Benglis, Richmond Burton, Fraser Taylor, Pia Fries, and Joanne Greenbaum.


Sarah Bird is an Idaho-based painter. Drawing on techniques from a background in realism but referencing the warped perspectives of Flemish Primitive paintings, Bird weaves landscape and still life together to create self-determined worlds. Layering and re-arranging motifs from the history of Western oil painting, she uses an old language to depict her contemporary life and to vividly describe personal objects set against deep horizons. The recipient of a 2017 Idaho Arts Grant, her paintings have been shown in New York, Los Angeles, and Block Island, Rhode Island.

Discover collectible wines, tasty fare, and more

Located in the heart of Ketchum, the Sun Valley Wine Company is a coveted establishment for gathering and meeting to enjoy sensational wines, delicious seasonal and in-house light-fare cuisine, and much more. Whether you are grabbing a bottle for a dinner party, for yourself, or to share with friends at Sun Valley Wine Company, the choices for wine are nonpareil, and owners Crystal and Dexter McKenzie, along with Crystal’s parents Gayle and Jim Phillips, never let up on making the Sun Valley Wine Company a unique experience.

The new owners of the Sun Valley Wine Company have expanded their offerings over the past two years with wines that appease the palates of new consumers as well as discerning connoisseurs. These changes include a daily offering of rotating wine flights complete with tasting notes, an extensive selection of everyday wines, fine wines, champagnes, and sparkling wines of all price points, and regularly scheduled educational wine-tasting events.


“Every week, we have new things coming; it feels like Christmas,” says Crystal. “We see world-class wineries and exceptional vintages in our shop, typically reserved for finedining restaurants. It is an honor that our space and this small market are considered for these excellent wines.”

Adding to the selection of wines and other beverages, Sun Valley Wine Company’s chef-crafted menu features locally sourced seasonal products from Eden Creamery, Charlie’s Produce, Beehive Cheeses, and Sun Valley Trout along with locally grown microgreens and other ingredients, which rotate frequently to be as fresh as possible.

“We try to create something different and fun in our tiny kitchen,” says Crystal. “The size of our kitchen is a real challenge; however, Tyler, our chef, is doing a great job creating beautiful dishes that pair nicely with wine.”

“We believe our cellar is a haven for the true wine connoisseurs. We spent the past two years meticulously curating wines from the best producers in the world. We invite serious wine aficionados to inquire about visiting our cellar.”

Whether it’s a burrata appetizer or spanakopita and sandwiches ranging from New York Strip, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, or a Louisiana Style Muffaletta, there’s always something to try.

“I love the changes Tyler has made in our kitchen, especially Tyler’s made-in-house spinach dip and white bean hummus,” says Gayle. “With the change in season, we are so excited to bring back our house made soups and Ramen Mondays.”

However, most impressive at the Sun Valley Wine Company is the expansive collection of wines that line the shelves of its newly unveiled wine cellar, which is only found at the Sun Valley Wine Company. “The soul of any great wine lies in its preservation,” explains Crystal. “The Sun Valley Wine Company’s subterranean cellar provides exceptional year-round temperature and humidity control. In addition, the underground cellar provides the perfect environment for these liquid treasures to evolve gracefully over time.”

In Sun Valley, there is no better place to embark on a journey through the world of fine wines than at the Sun Valley Wine Company. The addition of their esteemed cellar ehnances an already impressive collection of wines, carefully curated to satisfy the discerning palates of wine enthusiasts. Committed to providing an unparalleled selection of critically acclaimed and highly regarded wines, the Sun Valley Wine Company is a place for aficionados to shop an expansive selection of elegant and graceful oldworld gems and well-crafted new-world treasures.

“We believe our cellar is a haven for the true wine connoisseurs,” says Crystal. “We spent the past two years meticulously curating wines from the best producers in the world. We invite serious wine aficionados to inquire about visiting our cellar.”

Walking into the Pioneer Saloon in Ketchum is like greeting an old friend. It’s often the first stop for locals coming home or visitors starting a memorable vacation. For more than 50 years, the Pioneer has been welcoming its loyal customers with a warm and cozy atmosphere that feels more like someone’s home than a restaurant. Renowned for perfectly aged and flavorful beef, many varieties of seafood, fresh Idaho rainbow trout, and Northwest regional specials, the Pioneer is much more than a steakhouse. Unique and historic western art fills the bar and restaurant, reminiscent of earlier days when pioneers settled in this valley. Authentic and genuine friendly service from familiar faces will make you feel as though you have arrived home when you walk in the door. As the locals say, “If you haven’t been to the Pioneer Saloon, you haven’t been to Ketchum.”

Always busy with a fun mix of locals and visitors alike, The Sawtooth Club has been downtown Ketchum’s most beloved destination for dining and cocktails since the days when Ernest Hemingway himself was a regular there. Nowadays, the place is more popular than ever with an inspired menu offering a mouthwatering blend of creative small plates to share, grilled steaks, chops and ribs, healthy vegetarian dishes, fresh seafood, unique pasta bowls, nightly specials and much more.

In the bar enjoy handcrafted cocktails, 18 wines by the glass, and 12 ice-cold craft brews on tap. Dinner offerings this fall and winter include fresh Idaho trout, filet mignon, linguine with clams, chicken Senegalese, mesquite rack of lamb, grilled ribeye steak, fresh steelhead salmon, butternut squash ravioli, barbeque baby back ribs, vegan and gluten-free sesame noodle bowl, Waygu beef meatloaf, New Orleans shellfish pasta, roasted free-range chicken, fresh steamer clams, seared ahi salad, awesome burgers and sandwiches, to name just a few.

All of our grilling is done over a live mesquite-wood fire. We do not use processed charcoal or wood chips, only authentic mesquite logs from Texas. This method of natural wood cooking generates the intense heat that sears in the flavorful juices and imparts a variety of subtle tastes and aromas to meat, poultry, and seafood.

An award-winning wine list complements the wonderful food, and autumn evenings around the large central fireplace are not to be missed. One visit and you’ll know why The Sawtooth Club has repeatedly been voted the “Valley’s Best Overall Restaurant and The Valley’s Best Bar!”

Few other restaurants in Ketchum are as steeped in history as the legendary Christiania. Known as “The Christy” to locals, the restaurant has been in operation since 1959 when Ernest Hemingway dined there so often he had his own table.

Olympic Ski Team Coach adorn the walls. Your meal will be a pièce de résistance!
