WELCOME TO THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY L ETTER FRO M O U R BO A R D P R E S IDE N T

I love this community and it’s why I’m proud to be a part of The Chamber. I am truly a local. I was born in Hailey and raised in Blaine County. My father was born in the J.C. Fox Building in downtown Hailey, where the City now has its offices, and he and my mom raised our family in Carey. I’m now raising a family of my own in Hailey and I couldn’t think of a better place to grow up. 2020 was a challenging year. It was hard on some businesses and caused others to thrive. Construction, landscaping, recreation and real estate did really well, while lots of hotels, restaurants and retail stores struggled. Even though at times we had some of the highest rates of COVID in the country, we have done a great job of knocking those numbers down. It has been exceptional the way we’ve been able to keep COVID under control, especially when you consider the amount of tourists and people from out of town coming to our valley. Our lives were definitely disrupted because of COVID, but we’re still lucky to live in a place where we can continue to enjoy recreational activities like hiking, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, skiing, snowmobiling ... it’s endless. These same activities are what drive so many people to visit this beautiful place every year, including 2020. More people visited and decided to make the Wood River Valley their permanent home than ever before. Some families are living here now while their children are participating in online schools as far away as California and New York. PECK FAMILY

By the summer of 2021 we are beginning to return to a sense of normalcy. The events we’re used to are starting to come back, like outdoor concerts, the Summer Symphony, the Fourth of July and Sawtooth Rangers Rodeo. We also have some of the best restaurants, hotels and shopping in the state and they're hopefully going to fill back up again. Our goal at The Chamber is to help local businesses thrive and make the visitors' experience the best possible for those coming to our valley, whether they’re coming from Boise, Chicago or abroad. We want them to want to come back and to tell their friends and family what a great time they had here. The great outdoors, art, culture, shopping, world-class restaurants, spas and theatre, and lots of great libations, we’re living the good life here. Thanks for helping us keep it that way. Marlon Peck President, The Chamber, Hailey & the Wood River Valley

DISCOVER HAILEY & THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY 2021

4 IT GETS YOU & YOUR STAFF NETWORKING One of the most rewarding things The Chamber does is to connect people. We help create relationships amongst fellow business and community members, especially at our two monthly events, Wake Up with The Chamber (on the second Tuesday morning) and our “BAHs” or Business After Hours (on the third Thursday evening). They are always free, open to the public and a fun way to make new connections, hear local news and catch up with familiar faces.

5 IT‘S AN IMPACTFUL WAY TO SUPPORT Every time you support The Chamber or our members you are making a direct and positive impact on our community. You help thousands of local employees—your family, friends and neighbors—who work at Chamber businesses and nonprofits. You support lots of Chamberbacked events that make life here better, from the 5B Father’s Day Bash to bringing back the Hailey Days of the Old West Rodeo, from the Fourth of July fireworks to Trailing of the Sheep. We also help thousands of visitors at the Welcome Center in Hailey and answer phone calls about everything from snow and flooding issues to the best places to camp, ski, hike, shop, eat, drink and be merry. Most people don’t realize that The Chamber is a nonprofit with the simple goal of helping our businesses and community. We appreciate your support and having you be part of the solution.

MINDFULNESS IN THE MOUNTAINS BY RAY GADD

PHOTO BY JOHN WEBSTER

eflecting back on this past year brings into focus a new way that we look at the world. For many of us, it has given us a minute to pause and identify what matters most. It’s encouraged us to try new things, to take care of ourselves, to virtually connect with friends and family, as well as igniting our intrinsic pull to get outside and explore. Hopefully, these changes have also taught us to be a little more mindful of our surroundings. Mindfulness comes in many forms. At the core, it brings forth consciousness of the environment around us. Some things we will know and others need to be learned in order to positively navigate these new experiences. Whether it be an understanding of our personal interactions or discovering ways to properly navigate the outdoors, there is power through knowledge. While we may have common-sense ideas of how things should be done, they may not always be the same. Take a minute to learn about simple unknowns. When in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask a stranger, ask a friend or find a guide to share the local knowledge. You’ll find we are a pretty welcoming place. Visit Sun Valley has put together a series of educational resources including, but not limited to, trail etiquette, cleaning up after yourself and your pets, the value of guides, and how to be better stewards in an effort to help us all practice mindfulness here in our mountain community.

HEALTH CARE Expanding ways to ‘be there’ for wellness care and beyond! BY ANN HARRISON

PHOTOS COURTESY ST. LUKE'S WOOD RIVER MEDICAL CENTER

L

et’s face it, we will always be needed by others. Our friends, our family, our clients, our community… you name it, people need other people. But, the most important person who needs you, is you. Staying on top of your own wellness is the best thing you can do in your quest to ‘be there’ for others. The good news is that St. Luke’s Wood River, or just St. Luke’s, as the locals like to call it, has been expanding care to ‘be there’ for our community in more ways than ever. St. Luke’s has long been providing worldclass health care to our active community and they just keep giving us more. And, just when you thought you were getting sick of our new virtual world, you’ll likely feel the opposite when it comes to expanded choices in care. Last year St. Luke’s developed and incorporated many new best practices that will continue to evolve to keep our local health care providers and patients safe, such as universal masking, and e-check-in for appointments. St. Luke’s Health System was also able to accelerate the rollout of virtual visits, via telehealth, for many service lines in order to provide care outside of the walls of the hospital and clinic setting. Virtual care is integrated into St. Luke’s in many ways, with a variety of service lines, including wellness checks and behavioral health, and now, even emergency care.

“A virtual visit is a real-time, audio-visual interaction between patients/families and providers using telehealth technology. It occurs via myChart and can take place on a tablet or smartphone. Some e-visits can also occur over the telephone without video,” explained Dr. Frank Batcha, a physician with SLWR Family Medicine. At St. Luke’s, virtual care is an efficient and relatively easy way to deliver clinical care. Patients can contact their primary care provider or specialist to inquire about utilizing myChart and telehealth. Patients can also message their provider, request prescription refills, view test results, schedule appointments and e-check-in for an upcoming visit via myChart. In fact, over the past year, St. Luke’s has made increasing use of virtual services at varying levels and piloted expansion of some offerings. The pilot efforts have turned out to be so successful at improving patient outcomes, at lower costs, that St. Luke’s is permanently expanding the virtual services to all of its nine emergency departments. Now, virtual bedside consultations and extended support coordinated through St. Luke’s Virtual Care Center will be available in St. Luke’s emergency departments here in the Wood River Valley alongside more traditional emergency care. Now patients and doctors can utilize live, two-way cameras, remote patient monitoring equipment and electronic health

Any patient who walks in the doors of any St. Luke’s emergency department should know they are getting the same level of care, no matter if their location is in the city or in the mountains.

records to connect with physicians and specialists in the Boise center to right from our local emergency department. “These expanded emergency department services are such an important effort to standardize care across all St. Luke’s emergency departments,” said Krista Stadler, St. Luke’s Health System senior director of telehealth. “Any patient who walks in the doors of any St. Luke’s emergency department should know they are getting the same level of care, no matter if their location is in the city or in the mountains.” I suppose we can thank the pandemic for accelerating our virtual world in positive ways when it comes to health care. This is a big deal in emergency care and these new advancements extend into St. Luke’s overall commitment to provide access to worldclass care throughout the St. Luke’s Health System. Telehealth has existed for years at St. Luke’s and is a great way to stay up to date on annual screenings and non-emergency visits. And now, if you do find yourself in the emergency department, SLWR has expanded how they can ‘be there’ too. One of the reasons St. Luke’s is such a strong facility in our valley is due to the generosity of our community. The hospital was built on and continues to constantly improve because of the ongoing investments from donors. The entire St. Luke’s Health System puts an equal amount of focus on providing resources for wellness and preventative care as they do on treating acute illness and emergency care. Whether you want to go to the clinic or utilize the virtual telehealth system, St. Luke’s is making it easier than ever to stay on track (or get back on track) with self-care so you can ‘be there’ for family and friends. Visit stlukesonline.org to learn more about all the services available through St. Luke’s. St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center is the only hospital within a 75-mile radius of Ketchum, Sun Valley, Hailey and Bellevue. SLWRMC maintains 25 inpatient beds with approximately 440 employees and 45 physicians on active staff. Services range from OB/ GYN, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Neurology, Orthopedics, and more as well as ENT, Gastroenterology, Urology, Cardiology, Oncology and more through visiting specialists. SLWRMC has a full range of diagnostic laboratory testing, X-ray, CT, EEG, MRI as well as state-of-the-art 3D mammography at the Women’s Imaging Center. SLWRMC is part of St. Luke’s Health System which has multiple hospital campuses and a broad mix of diagnostic and clinical sites that together serve southern Idaho and eastern Oregon. Air St. Luke’s transports patients in critical situations via helicopter, fixed wing or ground transport

Air St. Luke’s is used in case someone needs to be transported via ground, rotor or fixed wing to a larger or specialized health care system outside of our rural community. It is the region’s most comprehensive medical transport program, operating as mobile critical care units with advanced lifesaving equipment and technology. As a Critical Access Hospital with a level IV trauma designation, St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center can stabilize and transport those needing complex or specialized care. Starting at just $60/year (or $1000 for a lifetime membership) any family can sign up for the service and have peace of mind. For more information on membership, please go to stlukesonline.org.

O

ne of the biggest reasons why so many of us choose to live in or love to visit the Wood River Valley is because of our backyard. While we certainly love the culture and sense of community the four small towns of our valley offer, it’s what’s just beyond town that really connects us all. The beauty of our part of the Northern Rockies and the playground it is home to are tough to top. Whether you like hiking, skiing or mountain biking, fishing, photography, plein air painting or simply witnessing the wonders of nature with your kids or grandkids, the Wood River Valley is a magical place. That’s because it’s easy to enjoy all these things and much more simply by heading out into our backyard. To help you make the most out of all the Wood River Valley has to offer, here’s a rundown of some of our favorite backyard adventures.

HIKING Short Drives

Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve offers up some of the most unique terrain in the country, making it a popular spot for day hikes. Located just over an hour’s drive southeast of the Wood River Valley, Craters of the Moon is an island of lava flows and cinder cones sprawled out in the midst of the “Sagebrush Sea,” as they call the high desert of southern Idaho. Formed during volcanic eruptions over 15,000 years ago, the monument was signed into order by President Calvin Coolidge in 1923. In 1969, Apollo 14 astronauts came to train for their moonwalk by hiking around Craters. Craters of the Moon offers eight hikes from short strolls to an 8-mile trek. It also offers a unique snowshoeing option in the winter. The Monument is open all year and its Visitors Center is open daily.

Short Drives

Sawtooth Valley           The Sawtooth Valley is considered to be one of the most beautiful mountain valleys on the planet.  “Just over the hill,” as most locals say, from the Wood River Valley, the Sawtooth Valley is another short drive that is full of hiking, fishing, mountain biking and water-related fun. After crossing Galena Summit—and stopping to take a photo at the Scenic Overlook—the Sawtooth Valley is sprinkled with a series of high mountain lakes. Redfish Lake is the most famous of the drive-to lakes and is named after the once prolific salmon that return some 900 miles from the sea to spawn each year. The Sawtooth Fish Hatchery, located right along Scenic Highway 75, is a great place to see salmon and steelhead.  Endless hiking options can be found along both sides of the highway, especially if you head into the Sawtooth Mountains.

SOLDIER MOUNTAIN RISES FROM THE ASHES BY MIKE MCKENNA

PHOTOS COURTESY SOLDIER MOUNTAIN

S

oldier Mountain was founded in the ridgeline above Fairfield, Idaho, in 1947. The mom-and-pop ski area has long been a place where kids from across southern Idaho have learned to ski or snowboard and where countless families have fallen in love with winter sports. But like many small ski areas in America, time has been tough on Soldier Mountain, and it has been struggling to stay relevant, to stay solvent, to stay open. Several owners have come and gone in recent times, like gusts of wind across the Camas Prairie, and the 1,150-acre ski area was teetering. Then, the day before Soldier was set to throw a party to celebrate the opening of its new mountain bike trails in August of 2020, a wildfire hit.

‘our mountain,’” Paul said, adding, “We don’t want to be another Sun Valley. We want to be Soldier Mountain.” Snuggled into the southern tip of the Smoky Mountains, Soldier Mountain offers mountain biking and camping in the summer and lift-assist and snowcat skiing in the winter.

“We bought Soldier because it’s a fantastic little ski area. It’s a gem that was slowly dying away. It just needed more attention and we knew we could give it some. People love this resort and they want to see it succeed”. The ski and mountain bike trails were torched. One ski lift was severely damaged and the Magic Carpet was destroyed. Only the lodge and a few other buildings were saved. While the day, and the rest of the summer were ruined, hope was not lost. Just the day before the fire hit, Soldier Mountain had been sold. A Utah-based group, led by general manager, Paul Alden, had become the new owners. And while the fire devastated them, they were determined to make sure that the setback would really become a setup for success. “It could have been worse and it’s a miracle more damage wasn’t done,” Paul said. “We simply had to get up, dust the ashes off and get back after it.” And indeed they did. Soldier Mountain opened up on time for the ski season and, by all accounts, they had a great one. The mountain bike trails will reopen as well. “We had a wonderful season with lots of new and returning guests,” Paul said. “We bought Soldier because it’s a fantastic little ski area. It’s a gem that was slowly dying away. It just needed more attention and we knew we could give it some. People love this resort and they want to see it succeed”. Under its new leadership, the goals for Soldier Mountain are simply to be welcoming and continue to offer affordable family fun. “Our objective is to make sure the locals like us, which means people from Mountain Home to Fairfield to the Wood River Valley. We want to be totally welcoming and for them to feel like it’s

HIKING Places to Stay

Stanley The quaint and rustic town of Stanley is busiest in the summer, when it becomes the hub for bikers, hikers and rafters. The greater Stanley area is home to more than a dozen hotels, lodges and rental options as well as countless camping choices. Stanley is also home to more than a dozen restaurants and bars, although most of them are only open during the warm-weather months. For more information about dining or lodging, please contact the Stanley Chamber of Commerce at www.StanleyCC.org or call 208.774.3411            

Out the Backdoor

If you love to hike, well then, here are endless hiking options leading from every community in the Wood River Valley. From short, dog and family-friendly strolls like the Howard Preserve in Bellevue or the Sellgren Trail in Ketchum to long jaunts into the mountains like Quigley Canyon in Hailey or Trail Creek just beyond Sun Valley. Easy: Hailey Greenway runs along the Big Wood River and is a perfect place for youngsters to take a hike. One of the most popular places to walk dogs or hit the river for some fishing, the Greenway runs from the Wood River Land Trust’s Draper Wood River Preserve just off Bullion Street in Hailey, down through the Colorado Gulch Preserve off Broadford Road. Variable: Adams Gulch may be the most popular hiking (and dog walking) spot in the Wood River Valley. Nestled in the tree-covered hills just north of Ketchum, Adams Gulch offers a variety of hiking options, with all kinds of loops for any energy level. If you don’t mind crossing paths with people and pets, this is the perfect hiking spot for you.

Challenging: Bald Mountain Trail covers what is best known during the winter as the Sun Valley Ski Area. With stunning views of the surrounding mountains and access options that include a gondola ride, the Bald Mountain Trail is a must for any hiking fan. It isn’t an easy hike, however, as the trail covers 3,200 vertical feet in five miles. That’s why some folks ride the gondola up and then hike back down. THE CHAMBER GUIDE 2021

MTN. BIKING Sun Valley may have been founded on skiing, but it’s becoming known as a mountain biking mecca. The entire area is full of good dirt, a great variety of terrain and over 400 miles of single track to explore. There are also plenty of fun and unique rides just a short drive away at places like Fisher Creek, but if you love to ride, there’s really no reason to leave the backyard. Bald Mountain Once the snow melts, Bald Mountain opens for the mountain biking business— and business couldn’t be better. Lift access riding on Baldy is about as much fun as you can have on two wheels. From the new flow trails to miles of downhill track, riding Sun Valley is tough to top. Adams Gulch Adams Gulch just outside Ketchum and Carbonate Mountain just across the river from Hailey are two of the most popular places to ride, but there are great trails and plenty of old dirt roads into the mountains to explore throughout the Valley. Fatbike Phenomenon There used to come a time each fall when we’d all put our bikes away for the season and grab our skis. But now we just swap out our road or mountain bikes for a fatbike. With tires twice as big as a normal mountain bikes, fatbikes are good in snowy and slushy conditions. Fatbikes have actually been around for well over a decade, but they’ve really begun to take off in popularity over the last few years. With the Wood River Trail offering 20 miles of groomed paths perfect for fatbiking, going for a bike ride during the winter no longer sounds like a nutty idea. Pump Tracks Ketchum Bike Park (700 2nd Ave.): A great pump park, grassy rest areas, shade tree and shrub plantings, and bench and bleacher seating. Trail Park & Track (Quigley Canyon): Made of dirt, clay rollers and berms, a pump track offers a great way for kids of all ages to get active, get a core workout and develop great off-road biking skills. 32

GRINDING What is Gravel Grinding?

Just Right Off-Road Adventure           More off-road adventure than a pavement ride, gravel grind riding is a unique mix of on and off-road riding, sometimes with some single track that allows you to cover miles and see incredible off-road Idaho areas. Underground races and organized events, such as Rebecca’s Private Idaho, have cemented the concept of gravel-grind riding to all who love bike adventures. Today, purpose-built gravel bikes are sturdy, but designed for off-pavement use, with good tires, a slightly more upright position, longer wheel base and disk brakes. Gravel grinder bikes bring the best of both worlds – from smooth single track to epic road rides – into the same outing Pick up the full Travels on Gravel map with all 12 rides in Hailey & South Idaho at the Hailey Welcome Center or                        download at haileyidaho.com/gravel

Our Favorite Travels on Gravel be a left turn onto Poverty Flats Road. This 10 - Easy - Quigley Loop Trail/Rd. 4.2 miles. 642’ elevation gain. About 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.

A perfect beginner or quick gravel ride, especially good for young children. Start at the trailhead on Quigley Road, just past the end of the pavement. Ride out on the single-track trail to the pond and loop back on the other side of Quigley Canyon until the trail crosses the field and returns to the trailhead on Quigley Road. Or ride the road out to the pond and return on the trail; it’s easier descending on the trail. 1B - Moderate - Classic Rock Creek to Poverty Flats Loop 35 miles. 1,500’ elevation gain. Expect 2-1/2 to 3/1/2 hours. This ride is a classic tour of the west Hailey gravel. It is best ridden counter-clockwise and rides in reverse of some of the same roads in the Travel on Gravel Map. Start in Hailey and head west on Croy Creek Road. At about 5 miles, turn left on View Road/ Rock Creek Road (at Rock Creek Ranch sign). At approximately 10 miles, there will

turn is easy to miss, but marked by a couple of galvanized storage tanks. Continue on Poverty Flats Road on rolling terrain followed by a 2.3-mile climb and fast descent to Glendale Road. Continue on Glendale Road, crossing Highway 75. Take a right turn just before Bellevue Farms subdivision and follow around to the south and then connect with Gannett Road. Head back to Hailey via the bike path starting in Bellevue or alternately on Broadford Road. 7 - Difficult - Muldoon Canyon A “big” ride with lots of vertical. 16 miles. 1,500’ elevation gain. About 2-3 hours. This out-and-back ride on a gravel road is only lightly traveled but rough in places. It follows Seamans Gulch in a narrow shady canyon until it starts the climb to Muldoon Summit. Start from Bellevue on Muldoon Road and pass turnoffs to Martin Canyon on the left, and to Sharps Canyon on the right (see separate rides for those) until you start climbing in an open basin. At the summit you can stop and enjoy views of the Pioneer mountains before descending.

FISHING

Out the Backdoor

BIG WOOD RIVER The Big Wood River carves its way through the valley it’s named for. That’s why no matter where you are in the Wood River Valley, you’re never far from the river. The Big Wood offers ample access throughout most of its 60-mile run to Magic Reservoir. Early spring is the only time the river is completely closed to fishing. Meanwhile, the other three seasons on the Big Wood make for some pretty idyllic alpine fishing. The freestone river is full of trout and gorgeous views that make you feel a lot farther away from civilization than you are.

FISHING Short Drives

Fly Fishing Highway Fishing is a big part of the appeal of our little neck of the Northern Rockies. Part of the “Fly Fishing Highway,” as they call Highway 20, even rolls right through the southern section of Blaine County. The two-lane highway is a short drive from Hailey or Ketchum and passes the legendary waters of Silver Creek. Silver Creek Preserve When The Nature Conservancy first preserved Silver Creek back in 1976, it became a watershed moment in spring creek and fisheries conservation. It was really the first conservation project of its kind anywhere, and its success has inspired numerous such projects around the world. That’s one of the reasons why fishing the gin-clear waters of Silver Creek is such a special event in any angler’s life—even when you’re as lucky as we locals are to fish it all the time. There’s never a bad day on Silver Creek, because even though the fishing isn’t easy, it’s always a rewarding experience.

36

Magic Reservoir It’s tough not to like a place called Magic Reservoir. The largest manmade lake in the area has several access points and is popular for bait, lure and fly fishing during the warmer months and ice fishing in the winter. Fed by the Big Wood River, when Magic Reservoir is full it covers nearly 4,000 acres and five miles of high-desert terrain. Besides fishing, Magic is a popular spot for waterskiers and stand-up paddleboarding. While trout—and big ones at that—are caught with regularity at both Silver Creek and Magic Reservoir, Magic is also one of the best places around to catch bass.

Making its way from the snowy mountains above Sun Valley, Trail Creek offers some pretty sweet small-stream fishing. The chilly waters of the creek get stocked often during the height of the fishing season. Trail Creek also passes by the Hemingway Memorial, adding another attraction to spending some time exploring the small mountain stream.

FISHING GEAR Two of the best in the fishing business, Silver Creek Outfitters and Lost River Outfitters, can be found on Main Street in Ketchum. They both offer full-service tackle shops and knowledgeable staffs. They also offer a variety of guided fishing experiences, from full to half days, for one person or for the whole family. One trip on the water and you’ll see why Sun Valley has long been known for offering some of the best fishing guides in the country. Lost River Outfitters 371 N.

SKIING Sun Valley is not only home to America’s first destination ski resort, we’re also home to the first ski lift. You can even see its remnants at Proctor Mountain, just east of the resort. We’re awfully proud of our skiing history around here, and for good reason. From Sun Valley’s celebrity-filled start in 1936 to officially being named “Nordic Town USA” a few years ago, skiing is part of the foundation of our community. One of the biggest reasons skiing is so big around here is that we offer something for everyone. Maybe you like Black Diamond bump runs or carving endless slalom turns on Baldy. Perhaps playing in the terrain parks or learning to ski or board on Dollar is more you’re style. Maybe you like to Nordic or crosscountry ski on our more than 100 miles of regular groomed trails. Or maybe you love to earn your turns and hit the backcountry and make laps along Galena Summit. Even if a simple snowshoe followed by a cup of hot cocoa is you’re style, we’ve got you covered there, too.   Baldy Baldy, also referred to as the Sun Valley Ski Resort, offers 100 runs and 3,400 vertical feet of alpine skiing. Baldy is well known for its consistent snow (averaging nearly 20 feet each season) and groomed runs, which are some of the best in the world thanks to the nation’s finest snowmaking system. Dollar Mountain Dollar Mountain is located on the other side of Ketchum from Baldy. Offering 22 runs and nearly 1,000 feet of vertical, Dollar is home to a variety of terrain parks that get changed

(208) 726-SKIS (7547) throughout the season. It also offers a Magic Carpet and plenty of runs for those new to skiing. Rotarun Rotarun is the “little mountain with the big heart” in Hailey. Skiing and riding is available on weekends at the 475-foot-high ski hill. The ticket price to ride the J-bar is a simple donation to the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, which runs Rotarun and offers learn-to-ski programs there for elementary school kids. Sun Valley Heli-Ski Most people don’t realize that Sun Valley Heli-Ski was issued the first U.S. Forest Service heli-ski permit in 1966 and is still lucky enough to lay claim to the largest permit in the lower 48 states. Their skiable terrain includes three ranges (Smoky, Boulder and Pioneer mountains) and covers more than 750,000 acres. Nordic Trails Nordic skiing in the Wood River Valley is as good as it gets. From Quigley Canyon in Hailey, following the groomed Wood River Trail (which also serves as the bike path) over to Sun Valley Resort’s Nordic Center and then up through the Sawtooth National Recreational Area to Galena Lodge, you can find some of the best cross-country and skate skiing in America. Epic Pass Sun Valley Resort has partnered up with the Epic Pass for the 2020/21 season. Epic Pass holders choose from a variety of options that include unlimited skiing and reduced lift ticket options at over 65 resorts worldwide.

BLAINE COUNTY SCHOOLS EMBRACE AND EDUCATE BY ANN HARRISON

C

ommunity means something around here and our education system is committed to building foundations that create exceptional humans. When the world seems to be moving away from unique forms of education, our school district is embracing all the different ways students

learn. Our teachers, in both public and private education, are combining real-world experiences with academics to build confident and passionate humans who will have a lifelong passion for learning. Our local schools go beyond expectations to provide unparalleled op-

portunities for every student. If school is a place where dreams are made into reality, then Blaine County delivers. This community offers opportunities that are out of the norm and families who are new to the area are in for a treat. Not only is there a strong focus on academics, art, technology, THE CHAMBER GUIDE 2021

and engineering, but also experiences like horseback riding, ski week, swim week, field trips, and more. On a regular basis, students are provided opportunities to leave campus and experience new levels of learning that they might not find anywhere else. When considering a new place to live, finding the right school is critical and while our public schools are pushing the boundaries of education, our private schools are literally blowing the doors off of the traditional classroom. Many families move here simply because of the unique experiences and educational choices provided. The ability to cultivate and grow individual differences and embrace students when needed has developed some of the country’s most impactful young adults who are leading lives filled with purpose and adventure.

Blaine County School District (BCSD) serves approximately 3,200 students at its eight schools, which include a STEAM school serving grades K–8, a dual-immersion magnet school serving grades K–5, a comprehensive middle school and high school, two neighborhood elementary schools, an alternative high school, and a rural K–12 school. With its mission of inspiring, engaging, educating, and empowering every student, BCSD is known for its award-winning arts programs, preschool and all-day kindergarten classes, advanced opportunities, diverse student body, dual-immersion language program and low student/teacher ratios. The district’s salary scale, professional development, and vast opportunities attract some of the best teachers in the country. Class sizes in BCSD schools also go beyond expectations. The Hailey community is passionate about education, and there is nothing small about it except maybe the classroom sizes. A class size of 18 is the goal for grades K–2, and a class size of 23 for grades 3–5. Middle and high school class sizes are usually under 25. Students will experience both larger and smaller classes depending on the demand, but overall, the small class sizes are something that parents and community members value the most about Blaine County schools. BCSD encourages innovation and a wholechild approach to education. Several years ago, parents in Ketchum began talking about the possibility of a new learning approach for Hemingway Elementary School. After conducting research and focus groups involving parents, staff, and community members, the school received Board approval to launch the PHOTOS PAGES 38, 21 & 43, SYRINGA MOUNTAIN SCHOOL MAYDAY CELEBRATION

area’s first STEAM school, where science, technology, engineering, art, and math are intentionally integrated into all lessons across the curriculum. “We have a school where learning is guided by real-world problem-solving,” said Hemingway STEAM School Principal Tish Short. Hemingway students often work collaboratively across grade levels to explore concepts in math, science, language arts, and social studies that connect across subjects. For instance, a fall hike to Baker Lake gives students a chance to become scientists by making weather observations, measuring and examining trees, and then writing about their experience afterward. A few years ago, BCSD adopted a Social-Emotional Learning curriculum that promotes student health and well-being. “We recognize that a physically and emotionally healthy, nutritionally astute, and physically active child is more likely to be academically successful,” said Director of Teaching and Learning Angie Martinez. Teachers across the district integrate social-emotional skills throughout the school day. This might look like a structured lesson where students learn to recognize emotions in early elementary grades, or a stream-of-consciousness writing project followed by a small group discussion in high school. From beginning to end, the goal is to equip all students with the skills they need to flourish—both in school and outside of school. What’s the end result? Public and private education in Blaine County goes beyond expectations. All students are given opportunities to be inspired, engaged, educated, and empowered in ways that build exceptional adults.

he Trailing of the Sheep Cultural Heritage Center, Inc., is pleased to present the sheep industry and the Wood River Valley community and beyond with The Good Shepherd Monument. The display, by sculptor Danny D. Edwards of Danny Edwards Bronzes, will include 11 life-sized bronze sculptures featuring eight sheep, a sheepherder, horse and dog, and will be installed on the landscape strip at Roberta McKercher Park facing Highway 75 in Hailey, Idaho.

DISCOVER HAILEY & THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY 2021


This monument is a lasting tribute to the sheep ranchers, producers, herders and the generations of families and communities who support them. Bronze sculptures were chosen for their long life and beauty for all to enjoy for many years to come. This project is our gift to the community, the industry and a tribute to its 150plus years of history in the Wood River Valley. The mission of the Trailing of the Sheep Cultural Heritage Center, Inc., is to gather, celebrate, present and preserve the history and culture of families and individual men and women involved in Idaho sheep ranching and to honor their contributions to the development of Idaho and the West. The primary focus of the organization each year is producing the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. The Festival was created in 1996 in response to the rapid loss of farms and ranches, growth in Idaho and the West, and newcomers to the area with little knowledge of the industry. It is with a sense of urgency that we work to preserve and capture the stories and our rich history, heritage and culture before they are lost. Planning for our 25th anniversary, we have expanded greatly from our humble beginnings, yet the goals and objectives remain the same—preserving the stories and history of sheep ranchers and herders, celebrating the rich cultures of the past and present, and entertaining and educating all about the production of food and fiber that have sustained local economies for generations. The Festival is a unique, extended weekend that celebrates the culture,

folk and traditional arts and history of Idaho's sheep ranching families highlighting the principal contributors - the Basques, Scottish and Peruvians. The Festival has garnered some well-deserved accolades over the years, including being recognized as one of the Top Ten Fall Festivals in the World by msn.com travel, Top 7 Fall Festivals by National Geographic, Top Ten U.S. Fall Festivals by smartertravel. com, Top Animal Festivals in the World and Top Ten Fall Festivals by USA Today, Top 7 Fun Fall Festivals by AARP, One of the Greatest Cultural Events in the West by Northwest Travel, and is a recipient of both the Society of American Travel Writer’s Phoenix Award for Best in Cultural Tourism and the Idaho Governor’s Award for Cultural Heritage. The cost of The Good Shepherd Monument is projected at $240,000. The funds needed to complete this project are outside the scope of the general operating budget to produce the annual Festival. This monument has been a decades-long dream for the Festival board and supporters. We are asking for financial support from communities near and far to help reach this goal. The 25th anniversary year is the perfect time to unveil this lasting monument and it is with great enthusiasm that we present this opportunity to the community at-large. We hope you will choose to be a part of this legacy.

PRO TIPS FOR THE PERFECT SUN VALLEY WEDDING BY MIKE MCKENNA

D area.

PHOTOS BY DEV KHALSA

ev Khalsa knows a lot about getting married in Sun Valley. The highly acclaimed, Hailey-based photographer has shot hundreds of weddings in just about every nook, cranny and ski slope in the

We asked Dev for a handful of tips for getting married in the Wood River Valley. 1. Remember It’s Your Day! In planning their wedding, some couples get so caught up in trying to please everyone around them that they sometimes forget that their wedding is really

a celebration of their love and that when it comes down to it, it’s their own vision of the day that’s most important. “The first question for any engaged couple should be, ‘What’s most important to you?’” Dev said. “You can really do whatever you want. Do you want an intimate celebration or a big party? Do you want something casual or formal? What do you want your wedding to feel like? Think about the emotions connected to it all. Consider the people who are most important to you and who you really want to share the day with.” Once you’ve answered some of those questions as a couple, you can begin to create the day you envision. THE CHAMBER GUIDE 2021

2. Hire Local Vendors You Trust And Let Them Guide You The Wood River Valley offers something for everyone and you will be hard pressed to find a more picturesque backdrop for your celebration! As you develop a vision of your wedding day, begin to look for local vendors that you connect with. Let them guide you through the planning process and help you bring that vision to life. “This is a great place to have a wedding,” Dev said. “Part of what makes it so special are the many great local vendors who know all the hidden gems and how things work around here,” Dev advised. “We are a tight-knit community of helpful, friendly people who work well together. Having local vendors helps things go smoothly.” Pick experienced vendors, knowing that they have done this many, many times and can share valuable insights with you. Stay in close contact with them, use them as sounding boards and ask all of your burning questions! “Everything takes 15 minutes longer than you think it will on your wedding day,” Dev said. “If you plan in that extra time throughout the day, it definitely takes the pressure off so that you won’t feel rushed.” 3. Make Photography Fit Into Your Day Dev has a background in photojournalism, and for her, it’s important that she gets to know you as a couple and what’s important to you, so that she can be tuned into

and ready to capture all the little emotional moments that are happening throughout the day. She wants the photography to complement the wedding, instead of defining it. “It’s supposed to be a wedding, not a photo shoot,” Dev clarifies. “This is your special day and we are here to capture your experience in photos!” Dev will help you think through what you want your experience of the day to be like. For example, is it important for you to wait to see each other for the first time

at the altar or do you want to do a ‘first look’ earlier in the day? If you opt for a ‘first look,’ you can get family and wedding party pictures taken care of before the ceremony, freeing up some extra time during the cocktail hour for you to enjoy a dance with your nephew or have a sip of that signature cocktail you created! 4. Nervous? Do A Trial Run! An engagement photo shoot serves as a great trial run before your wedding. If you are nervous about being in front of the camera (as most people are!), this will help. Engagement sessions provide a great, low-stress way to get comfortable having your picture taken, and as an added bonus, you’ll end up getting some great pictures of you and your significant other doing something that you love in a casual setting. As with your wedding photography, make engagement photos your own, choosing an activity and location that are meaningful to you. 5. Take A Deep Breath And Enjoy Yourself! Let your team of vendors help you plan, plan, plan and then, as the day draws near, you can be confident that they can handle whatever comes their way and you can just relax, be present and have fun. Of course, when it comes to weddings—expect the unexpected! “No matter how much you plan, you never know what will happen, and that’s part of the magic,” Dev said. “But whatever happens, you might as well enjoy it and let us capture the day as it unfolds.” THE CHAMBER GUIDE 2021

Sweet Patios & Decks BY MIKE MCKENNA

T

hey don’t call this place Sun Valley for nothing. Our little slice of “IdaHome” averages over 300 days of sunshine a year. We do our best to make the most out of all this sunshine by playing and partying hard, which is why we have many sweet patios and decks to enjoy our après adventures. Here’s a rundown of some of our favorites. KETCHUM The terrace at The Grill at Knob Hill Inn is a gardener’s delight, ideal for some higher-level dining. Meanwhile, the patio at Grumpy’s offers views of Baldy, delightfully greasy burgers and their legendary schooners of beer. Sawtooth Brewery and Lefty’s both offer small decks and big beers. Perry’s patio is the perfect place for lunch and some of their world-renowned chocolate chip cookies. The rooftop decks at the Sawtooth Club and Sun Valley Wine Company offer elevated and exceptionally tasty experiences. Despo's serves outstanding Mexican food at their newly remodeled deck in the heart of town, while the spacious back patio of the Limelight Hotel is tough to top for views, tasty treats and live music during the high seasons. The most famous deck in Ketchum can be found atop the

DISCOVER HAILEY & THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY 2021

Warfield Distillery & Brewery. The tasty beers and spirits made on the lower level match the views from the rooftop deck. SUN VALLEY Outdoor dining and world-class fare can be found everywhere you go around Sun Valley. The Lodge offers patios at both Gretchen’s and the Duchin Lounge. The Inn has patio seating at the Ram. The Sun Valley Club’s multi-tiered deck offers impressive views of the Trail Creek Golf Course with Baldy and Dollar mountains in the backdrop. HAILEY Hailey is a very bike-friendly community and Main Street is lined with places to park your bike and enjoy some outdoor dining. Look no further than the popular patio at the Power House Pub & Bike Shop. The bicycle bar has an impressive Europeanheavy beer selection and a small but tasty menu. The patio at Wiseguy Pizza Pie is the perfect place to grab a cold one and a slice. Sun Valley Brewery serves up handcrafted ales, big meals and a nice view of Della Mountain as well as regular live music. Sawtooth Brewery has a small deck, but often opens up the


brewhouse doors so live bands have a place to play, leaving plenty of room for dancing. The Wicked Spud is the place to be most Wednesday’s when they host live music in support of local nonprofits. The Divine Wine Bar and Cowboy Cocina both offer tasty meals in a more cozy, off-the-beaten-path, outdoor dining scene. DaVinci’s on Bullion Street and Dang’s Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar on Main each have a small deck, but serve up big flavors, perfect for fans of authentic Italian or Asian meals, respectively. CK’s Real Food has long served not only some of the best food in Idaho, but its patio is one of the prettiest. BELLEVUE The back deck at Mahoney’s is the place to be in Bellevue for

burgers, brews and views of the river. They also have live music on Thursday nights during the summer. The small decks at both Fuego and Silver Dollar Saloon also rock with live music on many nights. COFFEE SPOTS There are also lots of nice places to start your day with some outdoor breakfast refreshments. The large patio at Black Owl Coffee in Hailey is a locals’ favorite and The Coffee House also has a small deck. Hailey Coffee Company and Java both offer outdoor seating at their locations in Hailey and Ketchum and the summer flowerbeds besides the Konditorei’s patio in the Sun Valley Village are some of the nicest around. Perry's and Maude's in west Ketchum each have outdoor seating.

idden behind a row of evergreens and birch trees just north of downtown Ketchum, The Grill at Knob Hill Inn is a not-sowell-kept secret. Featuring a menu that highlights both longtime local favorite dishes and creative meals that tap into Idaho’s booming farm-to-table scene, The Grill has a very loyal following. “We try to source local and use the best ingredients we can find,” Bob Dunn said. Bob and his wife, Jolie, have owned The Grill for a decade now. The couple have been running successful restaurants in Sun Valley for over 35 years. The Grill is located in the lobby of the Knob Hill Inn and the restaurant includes a full bar and a terrace surrounded by gorgeous seasonal flower and herb gardens. It is, arguably, the best outdoor dining spot in Sun Valley. “The building has a historical charm to it and we have a great partnership with the Inn,” Bob said. The Grill at Knob Hill Inn “We try to use combines many of the longtime local favorite dishes from the as many Northwest Dunns' previous restaurants ingredients as poswith creative farm-to-table -inspired specials all served in sible.

In addition to their regular favorites, The Grill is also known for

their specials dreamed up by executive chef Sarah Janego and her team. Much of the staff has been with the Dunns for over 20 years. “We try to use as many Northwest ingredients as possible. Whatever catches Sarah’s eye. We like to let our chefs use their creativity,” Jolie said. “We think of it as elevated comfort food.”

LODGING WHETHER YOU LIKE FIVE-STARS OR SIMPLE AND RUSTIC, THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY HAS SOME IDEAL LODGING OPTIONS FOR YOU!

“C

harming,” “cozy,” “inviting,” “comfortable,” “welcoming,” the accolades are endless for the Knob Hill Inn and it’s easy to see why.

UNIQUE LODGING Knob Hill Inn BY MIKE MCKENNA

For nearly 30 years, the Knob Hill Inn has been Sun Valley’s best boutique hotel. The European-style Inn is tucked away in an idyllic spot on the northern edge of downtown Ketchum. The Inn offers 29 spacious rooms, most including wood-burning fireplaces, heated marble bathroom floors and decks with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Originally built in 1992 by Austrian couple, Joe and Sandy Koenig, the Knob Hill Inn was inspired by traditional Tyrolean bed-and-breakfast inns, with its wooden balconies and chalet-style roof. The Inn was purchased by Columbia Hospitality in 2011, and they immediately invested nearly a million dollars to enhance the iconic property. “What I love most about this place is that it feels like a home and not a hotel,” said Ally Barnhardt, the Knob Hill Inn’s general manager. Another thing Ally and her guests love is how spacious the rooms are.

KNOB HILL INN is a vision of alpine-style luxury—Old World European ski chalet charm on the outside and warm modern amenities on the inside. Their goal is to personalize each and every stay, to create memories that will last a lifetime.

They feel more like cabins in the mountains than they do typical hotel rooms. The views of Baldy’s famous ski runs to the west and the Boulder Mountains to the north only add to the appeal. While the rooms and their views are a big part of the Knob Hill Inn’s appeal, what really puts the icing on the cake—or the honey butter on the popover—is that one of the best restaurants in Idaho is connected to the lobby. The Grill at Knob Hill Inn (see the Dining section) is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. Breakfast is included with each stay and the Knob Hill Inn has a pool, hot tub and even allows pets. It’s a short walk to the world-class dining and shopping in downtown Ketchum and author Ernest Hemingway is buried just a short stroll away. No wonder some guests will stay for an entire month at a time. As soon as you duck under the porte cochère you can feel the quaint yet modern vibe of the Inn. It welcomes you to a dreamy mountain getaway. It doesn’t take long to understand why the Knob Hill Inn has been inducted into the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame.

REALTOR PROFILE

Kirsten DeHart

WOOD RIVER PROPERTIES What's your Sun Valley story?

Kirsten and her family of four moved to Sun Valley in 2012 from Spokane, Washington. Kirsten first visited the area to Nordic ski race while she was in college. Originally from Portland, Oregon, Kirsten’s sister and parents eventually followed the DeHarts to Idaho and now her whole family happily calls Sun Valley home. “We first fell in love with Stanley Basin, but our biggest draw to moving was the abundance of trails with so few people here, as opposed to other ski towns, and the sense of community here,” said Kirsten, who helped found the local middle school mountain bike program and still volunteers for Sun Valley’s Devo cycling team. What do you enjoy about selling real estate?

DISCOVER HAILEY & THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY 2021

After working as a physical therapist for nearly 20 years, Kirsten got her real estate and broker's licenses a few years ago to help with her husband’s successful real estate business. “I really enjoy finding a deal and helping people find a property that will make them happy. Coming into this as a career later on in life, I really want to be hands-on. I try to do all I can to help and to do it really well,” Kirsten said. Benefits of owning real estate in the Wood River Valley? “There are a lot of great benefits to living here or having a second home here. The recreational access and community are tough to beat, but you have to want to be here, because it’s not easy to get here,” Kirsten said. “Nobody will care about the decision to buy property here more than you. So it’s important to know what you want and then I can help you find it.”


Local real estate

ALWAYS A GOOD INVESTMENT Q & A WITH WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE'S DAN GORHAM What's your Sun Valley story and how did you get into real estate? I moved to Blaine County in 1986 from Driggs, Idaho, when I accepted a job in weekly journalism. For 13 years I had the privilege of serving as the editor and publisher of the Wood River Journal, Blaine County's oldest newspaper dating back to 1881. It was during this tenure that I fell in love with both the people of the Wood River Valley and the Sun Valley landscape. I also gained a tremendous amount of local knowledge regarding area schools, health care, arts and events, transportation, public lands and community resources. I joined Windermere Real Estate in 1999 as the managing broker and purchased the company in 2015. How has the COVID pandemic impacted the Sun Valley real estate scene? Wow. 2020 was such a complex year in Sun Valley real estate that it’s difficult to summarize the implications of all that happened. The “Great Elevation Migration” hit the Wood River Valley and other mountain communities in the summer of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic drove buyers to seek out sparsely populated areas with plentiful recreational amenities. As employers embraced the concept of remote work, real estate sales in the Wood River Valley exploded, with the number of buyers far exceeding the inventory available. How does the next year or so look for our local markets?

With many white-collar professionals allowed to work remotely, many people have adopted what is being labeled a YOLO (You Only Live Once) lifestyle. These folks are prioritizing quality of life and recreational opportunities over career advancement, so our communities should remain robust for the foreseeable future. Is the Wood River Valley still a good real estate investment? Real estate in the Wood River Valley remains a good investment. As Mark Twain said, “Buy land, they're not making it anymore.” Our recreational opportunities, from the new bike trails in the south Valley, to the fabulous Harriman trail in the north, are world class and only getting better. Sun Valley was named the number one ski resort in North America this year and the Silver Creek Preserve offers some of the finest fly fishing on the planet. Blaine County is a sophisticated mountain valley surrounded by five iconic mountain ranges. Those attributes are timeless. Any tips or advice on buying a home locally? Buying a home in the Wood River Valley during this real estate cycle is a challenge. Period. Buyers need to do their homework and line up solid financing before they go home shopping. Buyers should also use a real estate professional who knows the neighborhoods that interest them and be prepared to make decisions quickly. We do have some new subdivisions coming online in late 2021, and that should lessen the squeeze on the number of homes available for sale.

The same factors that created the real estate frenzy are still in play. 800

elocating is consistently rated as one of the most stressful experiences in life. Nevertheless, the coronavirus has made an impact on motivating people to move. More than 1 in 10 Americans have moved during the pandemic, according to a new survey from Zillow, touted as the mostvisited real estate website in the country. Among those recent movers, three-quarters say they moved for positive reasons, such as living in an area of which they've always dreamed. Moving companies like North American Moving Services, Hire A Helper, and United Van Lines track our moving patterns each year and publish their findings. A key takeaway from the North American report is that Idaho State continues to rank at or near the top in the nation for inbound moves. According to the study by Hire A Helper, COVID-19 has been a significant impetuous for relocation decisions. Their data show in July of 2020, 15% of movers cited the pandemic as the reason for their relocation. By December of last year, that number had increased to 25%. As employers scrambled to remain operational, within some industries the

many choosing to move from urban to more rural areas.” Twenty-six years ago, on Labor Day weekend, my husband and I were married in the upper meadows of the Boulder Mountains. We didn’t own a home in the Wood River Valley then. When each anniversary of our wedding cycled around, we would plan a trip to Sun Valley, enveloping the end of August and early days of September. The days that followed our sixth wedding anniversary prompted our personal decision to move and make a new life. We arrived back at our Washington State home on the evening of September 10, 2001. We awoke the following morning to the reality of the terrorist attacks against the United States and the heartache worldwide. 9/11 turned out to be our mountain migration motivation. We changed our formerly fixed mindset that convinced us we needed an urban community to sustain our careers. Sun Valley has been our home since 2002.

y snapshot on commercial activity in Hailey, Bellevue, and the south valley.

Historically, growth and economic activity during the market upticks flows from north to south, meaning it begins in Ketchum and then gradually moves to Hailey, and then Bellevue and south. The onset of the pandemic last March has had a definite impact on the typical dynamics of the valley economy. Pre-pandemic, we were well on our way to a full recovery from the recession all the way from one end of the valley to the other. It was unusual, but the economic activity was simultaneously strong throughout the valley, not just from north to south. A real boom had begun. Then COVID arrived. After a month or so of uncertainty, things started to pick up. The commercial and residential markets took off with a renewed enthusiasm and gusto. The majority of the commercial investment property deals happened in Ketchum. In Hailey, commercial investment has been more concentrated in light industrial, storage facility, and residential short-term rental properties. Unfortunately, it’s been a rough go for some of the retail and restaurant operators. According to the Idaho Mountain Express, the City of Hailey collected $522,822 in local-option tax revenue from sales activity in 2020, or a 24 percent drop compared to fiscal 2019. Localoption taxes generated from short-term rentals, however, made a giant comeback this past summer, increasing from only $89 in May to $2,560 in June—a 2,776 percent increase. In July, the city brought in a healthy $4,004 from short-term rentals. Around 2 percent of Hailey’s housing stock is dedicated to short-term rentals, according to Community Development Director Lisa Horowitz. Vrbo says there are 54 short-term rentals. Also according to The Express, as of December 18, the city of Hailey planned to begin distributing up to $200,000 to small businesses, in the form of grants, using federal CARES Act relief funds allocated to the city. Qualifying businesses and organizations would be eligible to receive up to $10,000 each to cover COVID-19-related expenses. By December 18, of the 30 or so applications received—more than a quarter of those came from restaurants. As always, I’m the optimist about our valley economy. I like to look at the things that factor into our future. Besides local trends, the macroeconomic conditions I am seeing will play a positive role in our area. If you drive along Main Street in Bellevue, the new buildings stand out and make a statement about the economic activity in the south valley. So I guess to my earlier point, the positive economic growth that spreads from north valley to south valley is well on its way. I expect this to continue for at least well into 2022. Paul Kenny has lived in Sun Valley for 46 years. He’s the former owner of Paul Kenny Sports (now PK’s) and The Mercantile of Sun Valley (Timberland). He’s practiced commercial real estate for over 20 years, and with his partner Matt Bogue, and associate Matt Gelso, they have an extensive history of transactions and an exhaustive data-base on valley commercial property.
