United commits to seasonal Denver flights

Regional jet service to Friedman set to start July 2

By GREGORY FOLEY
Express Staff Writer



Quote:
Officials from the nonprofit Fly Sun Valley Alliance, Friedman Memorial Airport and Sun Valley Resort announced Monday that United Airlines this summer will offer daily, nonstop flights between Denver and the Hailey airport

“It’s not Denver as a market per se, but a direct connection to the East Coast,” Waller said. “The New York area is a strong market in this valley.”

Here's an intriguing bill that I was against until I read the statement of purpose.

Bill to exempt Idaho from Daylight Savings time.

http://www.legislature.idaho.gov/leg...2014/H0559.htm

In the statement of purpose, the bill aims to put Idaho on "Spring Forward" time in perpetuity. The extra hour of evening sunlight we have in the summer is such a big plus for folks who have to work until 5:00pm or later. This bill would give us that extra evening hour year-round instead of just March-November.

I can't imagine the folks in CDA would like this bill. They would be an hour ahead of Spokane and an hour behind Boise. They could align with Boise, but then they'd be 2 hours ahead of Spokane. Talk about a disrupting commute.

What are they going to think up next lol. Idaho has two time zones which complicates the entire scenario.

Tamarack Resort was sold to Credit Suisse on Monday March 10, 2014, at a sheriff's sale, culminating 6 years of foreclosure litigation. The sheriff's sale is the first step in clearing title to the property created by Tamarack Resort LLC (TRLLC), the borrower of $250,000,000 from a Credit Suisse collateralized loan obligation (CLO) in 2006. The resort's owners' association, Tamarack Municipal Association, Inc., will continue to operate mountain facilities through at least the end of of the 2014-15 ski season.

TMA also operates the Robert Trent Jones II Osprey Meadows Golf course.

I hope they can get to the point soon to complete the village. I've heard their summer zip line is one of the best around.

Sawtooth Cams. No, not you Sawtooth but the actual mountains and cameras at Redfish Lake and Stanley.

Both links have live updates throughout the day. These mountains and wilderness area are often labeled one of the most beautiful places on earth and I tend to agree.

These are both live cameras so you might have to click the link or refresh to see the pictures in this post.

and Stanley. No other words needed.

I appreciate your beautiful and high quality photos of Boise that you share with us Sawtooth, I have always known yours are among the finest posted in this forum, especially in the mountain west. Thanks for representing and capturing Boise's serenity! I know of many people who look but are not members and cannot post replies.

Sun Valley lands U.S. Alpine finals

National championships coming to Idaho


By JEFF CORDES
Express Staff Writer


The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association announced Thursday that Sun Valley Resort will host the U.S. Alpine Ski Championships in 2016 and 2018. It will be the first time in 65 years that the Idaho resort has hosted nationals.

America’s oldest ski resort, Sun Valley will celebrate its 80th anniversary when it hosts the national finals in 2016.


“The first race attracted the ‘ski clans of the world’ and set the scene for Sun Valley to become a prestigious stop on the European, Canadian and American ski racing circuits. With nearly 80 years of commitment to ski racing, Sun Valley is looking forward to continuing this tradition by hosting the USSA Alpine Championships in 2016 and 2018.”

It is a very slow day on the forum today.

Hot springs anyone? In this 100 degree heat?

http://www.idahohotsprings.com/

Quote:
Idaho has the most usable hot springs pools in the nation, with approximately 130 ‘soakable’ out of 340. Idaho also has the most roadless forests in the lower 48 – by a landslide! Both of which require constant protection.
