New Day in Paradise

It snowed all night and we awoke to piles of snow on the ground. Tony, Christy, Jeanne and i were at the Gondola at 9 am with all the other grey hairs! so fun!

Tony and Christy zipped off to enjoy the powder (not very light, however) and Jeanne and I enjoyed the groomed slopes. We all met at Seattle Ridge for the Elevensies…a cup of hot chocolate and always such great conversation.

How beautiful it was at the top of Mayday lift. Such a difference from a week ago.

We had lunch at the Sun Valley Golf Club with the Holloways and Daphne Muehle who migrated from POST to Wood River Lanc Trust. It just seems that good people continue to find Sun Valley. And the sliders and sweet potato fries did not disappoint.

View of Baldy on the way down Hwy 75 to home…

We ended the day with popcorn and a great movie, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Bring your hankie…

When we returned home, we could not even think about turning on the news as the movies was just so poignant.


Later in the Day! More Snow!

On a very snowy day, the perfect place for lunch and a bowl of  tomato bisque is Cristina’s. We sat in the window, read the Idaho Mountain Express and watched the snow fall.

Tuqui never understands why she cannot join us. But she loves watching the people coming and going.

Another local haunt for those of us who love croissants, quiche and other baked goodies. Again, it is locally owned and we are lucky to have this as part of our morning routine.

Cate’s gorgeous condo is kitty corner from Rollin’ in Dough, the Video Store and the new tea place. What else could one want?

Well, maybe one could want Tully’s which is a couple of blocks away….


How cute is this little house in Ketchum?


And the Sun Valley Center for the Arts is coming…but then there is the economy. In the summer, as a fund-raising event, people bought a catered dinner for ten.

Home to Lane Ranch….





A Visit from the Donohues

A Gorgeous Day of Skiing with Jim and Suzy Donohue

We had a wonderful lunch at Averill’s at the Roundhouse with Tim Silva, an old business friend of Jim’s. Sun Valley is so lucky to have such a capable man so dedicated to Sun Valley.



Thanks to the great teaching of Jim and super support of Tony and Suzy.I am no longer terrified to be on the mountain after a few accidents and a broken collarbone.  Now can I remember… shoulders down hill, hands waist high, weight on lower ski, complete turns and RELAX! hmmm


Nothing is more fun than the Full Moon Dinner at Galena.
