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.

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.
Starting tomorrow (Friday), the Roundhouse Gondola will be opening at 9:00 am instead of 10:00 for the duration of the season. The Mountain guys had gotten some feedback from early hikers and others about the loss of that early morning ride. Now they have worked out a way to get the Gondola running for passengers at 9 and the Christmas lift just as soon as they can. This should be close to 9:00, perhaps a few minutes after, but they will run it as soon as they can get it open.
We know there will be some happy hikers who had built their days around an early trip up the Bald Mountain Trail before going off to work for the day, and liked to get up and out before the heat of the day.
