Warren Miller Entertainment Presents “No Turning Back” at The Opera House. November 1st and 2nd.

“Warren Miller’s 2014 film, No Turning Back, pays homage to the 65 years of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has lead WME to every end of the winter world. We’re taking a legacy that dates back to before skis had edges and mountains had condos and we’re running with it to the steepest peaks around the globe and back to the Mom and Pop hills that define skiing and riding.

Since he began creating films in 1949, Warren Miller has known that as skiers and riders, there’s no need to look back, we have to continuously drive to keep our edge and chase the snow. This year, we prove that not much has changed when it comes to why it is these athletes tilt and turn down mountains and pray for storms. Sheer delight. Welcome this winter season and remember there’s No Turning Back.”

The festival has grown to include five films, both drama and documentary, along with guest speakers from UNFPA, who give free lectures to the public through the sponsorship of The Ketchum Community Library, as well as visits to local schools along with guest film-makers. Other local collaborators include The Community School, The Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence, The Wood River Religious Leadership Council, and St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation.

Have (Paddle) Boat Will Travel

Paddle boarding on the Sun Valley Lake is great fun. These smiles say it all!

Paddle boarding on the Sun Valley Lake is great fun. These smiles say it all!

Let’s face it. Kids have endless energy and sometimes even the most inventive parents crave an activity where the children are happy and entertained that allows them to sit in the grass under a tree and enjoy some shade. One such perfect activity on a hot summer’s day is paddle boating at the cool and welcoming Sun Valley Lake adjacent to the Sun Valley Pavilion lawn.

The manageably-sized, picturesque body of water is accessed by a fleet of family-friendly paddle boats, rented by a friendly and helpful staff.

Last week, local children Chloe and Peter drove by the Lake with their mother Katherine. “Suddenly they asked, what’s that? We’ve never tried that before!” she laughed. “So we turned around and in a short time, they were on the lake laughing and splashing. It was so easy and really relaxing. No backpacks, no packed lunches, no equipment.”

“It was awesome,” enthused Peter, 6.

“We had a lot of fun,” said big sister Chloe, 9. “We are definitely going to come back.”

Life jackets and sunscreen are the only equipment needed to enjoy this activity

Life jackets and sunscreen are the only equipment needed to enjoy this activity. It’s summer the way it’s meant to be

In fact, they returned the next morning for more fun and spent a few hours exploring the shore, insects and fauna.

Assisted by a helpful attendant Jerry, they quickly got their life jackets and boat and away they went. Explorations included finding a Garden Tiger Moth, rescued and given a ride to shore, getting close to ducks and ducklings and sighting a snake on the grass.

Paddle boating is leisurely, allowing time to explore your surroundings

This backyard adventure is not only fun, it is extremely affordable. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a mellow few hours in Sun Valley.

Go out and take a paddle today. Remember, summer days are meant to be hazy, lazy and occasionally simple and relaxing!
