November 2017 Sun Valley Events, Real Estate, News

We have a love/hate relationship with the month of November, but it’s mostly love. It’s wonderfully quiet. The streets are nearly deserted. Restaurants offer “local” specials. Last chance to get in a few bike rides, hike or golf round before the snow hits. Getting ready for the beautiful winter season to come. And then it’s Thanksgiving! The slopes open. And, we are all reminded just how fortunate we are to live in this magnificent place!
