Ski Sun Valley and Ketchum Idaho
The action continues just down the road in the old mining town of Ketchum, first put on the map when American author Ernest Hemingway set up camp here in 1939. A recent influx of serious money, which has improved the shopping and dining options, might not have sat well with ‘Papa’, but his spirit is still present, in more ways than one: he was buried here in 1961 after his death by suicide. His memory lingers on at the classy Pioneer Saloon, still the place for 32-ounce prime rib and Idaho’s best potatoes.
