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 Sun Valley “Buy In July” Season Pass sale continues through August 2. Come get your 2010-2011 Sun Valley Season Ski Passes at the best prices now! 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. Prices go up August 3.
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!
This just in….Jessica’s Coffee cart at the River Run Plaza now offers the coldest beers and refreshing wines along with all her delicious coffee drinks and snacks daily while the Roundhouse Gondola is running. So come on down and enjoy the scenery, sit in the shade, or work on your tan and enjoy a cool one while you are there.
James Taylor and local favorite Carole King will be continuing their extremely successful national tour tonight with a stop at our River Run Plaza. Alas, all sold out. Instantly, in fact, the day they went on sale some months ago. We only wish we had more seats. (Working on it, by the way) And that is why, in case you noticed, the Gondola closed early today. They are setting up the stage for the show all day today.
But all will be back to normal Tuesday morning for all the hikers and bikers and flyers that have been up every day. And the Weather Service is forecasting hot, hot, hot weather for the rest of the week so plan to take your lunch break at the Roundhouse, or ride up just for the fresh air, or try an afternoon glass of wine on the deck up there. I promise you, it is worth the trip.
We’re hearing rumors that they might go back to starting the lifts at 9am instead of 10…Anybody have an opinion on that? We know there were a few early hikers that got their schedules messed up by the 10:00 opening. A nice gesture, if they do it. We’ll see…
Look for our earlier blog with the description of the Bald Mountain Trail. You’ll find it a tough hike up, but a beautiful walk, and a very civilized trip down on the Gondola (free).
a benefit for the family of Tim Michael and in recognition and gratitude to all Wood River Valley First Responders at River Run will take place on Wednesday, July 21.
Dave Mason, Kole Moulton and the Lonely Road and the Disciples of Rock to perform at River Run Wednesday, July 21 from 5-9pm.
Tickets are $20, Kids age 12 and under are $5.
From noon to 4pm there will be emergency rescue equipment demonstrations.
Concert tickets are available at Atkinsons Markets in Ketchum and Hailey. $20 for adults, and $5 for kids 12 & under.
Can you believe it? Here, in our little town, the ever popular Dave Mason with the disciples of Rock…That River Run concert venue is proving itself to be a great one for performers and enthusiasts both! What a great spot though, cooler when the sun gets lower, and beautiful with the mountain at your back and the river just in front as you sit on the grass enjoying the show. And the acoustics are amazing there, it seems the mountainside captures the music and bounces it right back at you. It will be a memorable evening for everybody.
This one is a benefit, organized by the tireless Julie Gallagher and members of the Sun Valley Ski Patrol for the family of Tim Michael who left us this winter while skiing on Baldy. And it is part of a whole afternoon of activities there at the River Run Plaza. There will be displays and demonstrations by the Wood River Valley First Responders and the Ski Patrol. The gondola will be running, and there will be lunch served at the Roundhouse during the day. You’ll see games and fun stuff for everybody, kids included.
There will be BBQ, a no-host bar, a silent auction and a raffle for 2 season ski passes on Baldy. The whole Ski Patrol will be out, enjoying the event, and offering the latest version of the Ski Patrol t-shirts and hats for sale. It all goes to a good cause. And a good time for everybody.
Bring the kids and bring your own picnics if you prefer, but be sure to come help out, you won’t regret it.
