On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, July 30, 31 & August 1 the folks at the River Run Brass Ranch are planning another huge tent sale on the grounds at the River Run Plaza. Expect some screamin’ deals on ski gear, apparel, and equipment of all sorts. It will be another perfect opportunity to take advantage of those deep discounts and gear up for next season.
Also local artist Megan Burks will be showing her latest collection of amazing jewelry and wares for sale under the tent on Saturday. This is a special show, so you don’t want to miss it.
Come on down, have a cup of coffee, you can even buy your husband a beer. You can shop or ride the gondola to the Roundhouse, go for a hike, or just hang out by the river. Sam and the boys have been busy ramping up the jumps and the berms in the Flow Park through the trees, too. There’s lots going on at the River Run Plaza these days for you and your whole family.
Who knew that the hilarious Steve Martin, famous for movies like “The Jerk, and “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Father of the Bride” was also a Banjo virtuoso. I’m told he can really tear it up on a stage, with great classic folk stuff and plenty of rockin’ country to get you up on your feet. Martin has toured all over the country with his Bluegrass band, and promises to give us a show to remember on the stage at the river Run Plaza next Tuesday evening, August 3.
Come on out, bring the kids, and enjoy another perfect sunset on the grounds along the Wood River. Sun Valley will have snacks and a bar set up over by Pete Lanes again in case the kids get hungry or you would like a cold drink.
The Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile will open at 7pm. Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, will perform at about 8:30. That’s a little late, so be sure to have sweatshirts for the kids and a jacket to stay warm out there. Tickets will be $45 for adults, with a discount for SV Center for the Arts members. It should be a great show, and we’ll all be there, too. Tickets available only through the Sun Valley Center for the Arts.

The full pass is just $1499, and the Sun Plus with all sorts of cool benefits is only $1599. Season passes are on sale at the River Run Lodge, the Sun Valley Recreation Center or online.

It was a beautiful night at River run last night, perfect skies, hot in the sun and very nice and cool in the shade of the setting sun. Thanks to the Sun Valley Ski Patrol, all the first Responders in the area, the USFS, St Lukes, Julie Gallagher, Holly Dupont, Spooky Taft, Shell Gourlay and all the 200 (count-em) volunteers, the event was a huge success.
Mason put on a clean show with a good selection of new stuff, and a fun nostalgia-filled finish that had everybody up, and calling for more. The Kole Moulton Band offered a great selection of real Idaho Country tunes that we hope to hear more of. And Bryant Dunn spoke eloquently for the Mountain lifestyle, and our community, and the Michael family. The evening finished with a late trip up the gondola and a reception at the historic Roundhouse Restaurant. What a beautiful ride down in the moonlight! That was something none of us will soon forget. We hope to see that again soon.
Thanks to Sun Valley Company and Tim Silva for all the generous support, and the use of the venue, the mountain, and the beautiful grounds at River Run. Once again we had a beautiful event offered to the community in the spirit of generousity, and service. More to come, we are certain.
Yep, that’s right, the world famous rock and roll artist Dave Mason will be performing at River Run tomorrow night! The music starts at 5:00pm with Kole Moulton and the Lonely Road, and the Disciples of Rock followed by Dave Mason at 7:00pm. It should be a great show, one that you don’t want to miss. If you haven’t been to a concert at River Run, this is a perfect chance to come out and see one. Tickets are only $20 for adults, and $5 for kids under 12, available at all Sun Valley ticket outlets.
Sun Valley Resort will offer BBQ items on site, and there will be a no-host bar set up near Pete Lane’s Bike Shop on River Run Plaza.
To add to the fun all the local first responder agencies will be in the River Run parking lot all afternoon showing off their cool gear and new equipment. We’ll see the Blaine County Search and Rescue with their rescue dogs and all the local fire departments. The USFS Helitac helicopter will be there, as well as the Life Flight helicopter from St. Lukes Hospital. These are the folks that make it possible for us all to enjoy the mountain life we enjoy in the beautiful Wood River Valley. This is your chance to meet all these fine community servants and get to know them and find out what they do for us. Have you ever seen a helicopter up close?
See you there.

We heard today that the oldest cars you probably have ever seen will be stopping by at the River Run Plaza on Saturday morning for a visit. This is a stop on the Great Western Tour of the Antique Steam Car Club and they’ll have their cool old steam powered cars on display right next to the bridge there at River Run. Come on by and see them!

Sun Valley is where celebrity icons and celebrity cars are common enough that there is little distracting fanfare. Cars include vintage classics, classics, sports (US & Euro), exotics, luxury and muscle. An upscale, but casual collector car auction with celebrity flair in a setting only Sun Valley Resort can offer.
Saturday & Sunday, September 4th & 5th, 2010
Preview and Bidder Registration – 8am to 10:30am
Auction – 10:30am to 6pm
About Silver Car Auctions:
Since our firm was founded in 1979 (our first auction had 120 cars), Silver Auctions has had one simple goal: to be the best collector car auction company in the business.
From that modest beginning, we now produce 30 auctions a year in 10 Western States and Canada. Some are small and some big (Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Sun Valley, Idaho). Some are enormous. (Hot August Nights Auction in Reno and Fort McDowell Auction in Arizona). Our annual Hot August Nights extravaganza in Reno is widely recognized as the nation’s premier collector car event.
Yep, we think it’s here…Summer, that is…The weather man says to expect temps in the 90′s today and for the weekend. That makes this the perfect time to get on up to the fresh air at the Roundhouse for lunch or a glass of wine. They’re open daily from 11 to 3:30 for the BBQ on the deck. And the Gondola will run from 9:00 until the last ride down at 4:30.
We’ve learned that it’s the coolest place in town for those hot afternoons here in the valley.
