Sun Valley is an outdoor-lover’s paradise. The Rocky Mountains tower over alpine lakes bordered by purple and yellow wild flowers. This is dream country for fishermen, bird watchers, and hikers. A canoe glides slowly over Pettit Lake just an hour north of Sun Valley, but the more daring indulge in white water rafting in nearby Stanley. Staying closer to home you can play golf on one of Sun Valley’s championship courses, try out the local bike paths, or be whisked up to the top of gorgeous Mt. Baldy in a comfortable gondola. You might even think about hiking back down.
Guest writers are sent out on various expeditions on the Friday before the conference gets underway. Attendees often arrive in Sun Valley early or stay late and indulge their passion for expert fly fishing, back country exploring, horse back riding, swimming and just about any sport you can imagine.
