October in Sun Valley

October News & Updates

October is keeping us on our toes – picture-perfect sunny days, chilly evenings, and the ever-present chance of waking up to snow in the morning. We love this time of year for the empty trails, hunting expeditions, and endless leaf peeping opportunities. Life seems to move at a slower pace in the fall and whether you’re catching up on movies or hitting it hard with ski conditioning classes, there’s no denying the brilliance of this time of year. We hope you get out and about to enjoy everything this small town has to offer! Happy Fall from all of us at SVA.

Top Five October Activities

1. As town gets quieter, there’s more time to explore your inner artist.  From theatre to fine art, there is abundant opportunity to try something new or dig deeper into an existing passion. Join a creative writing workshop, line dance with friends, or learn the basics of live sound production.
2. School is in full swing, but after-school activities abound!
 Who doesn’t want to be reborn as a kid growing up in the Wood River Valley? Kids of all ages can be found preparing with their teammates for the upcoming season of Nordic, ski racing, hockey and figure skating. And if winter sports aren’t their thing, teens might enjoy an Architecture and Design modeling class at the Center or an educational after-school workshop with the Environmental Resource Center.
3. Halloween never disappoints.
Halloween brings out all the usual witches and ghosts along with the wackier side of this community. There’s something for everyone. Pick your poison!
4. Navigate the local waters sans crowds. Everything in town slows down, including the local rivers. The next few weeks are the perfect time to go fishing and experience the solitude and beauty that made Hemingway favor fall in Sun Valley.

5. The anticipation of Winter is running strong. Get stoked for winter by heading over to the Sun Valley Opera House for the screening of Warren Miller’s “Face of Winter” from 7-9pm on Friday, October 26th. Get ready to whoop and holler. Only 31 days until opening day!
