I am an alpinist, land and water planning consultant, and finance professor. I first skied at Sun Valley during the 1970/71 season and have been in love with the Wood River Valley and surrounding mountain ranges ever since. My favorite local activity is backcountry skiing. Summer backpacking and climbing are a close second, and I am on my mountain bike most days when the trails are dry. I split my time between Hailey and Boise, Idaho.

Why Greg chose Hailey
After living and working all over the US, Europe and Australia, I concluded that this was the nicest place on the planet for my tastes. The area offers an amazing combination of culture and wilderness. Gourmet restaurants, fresh and exotic ingredients for cooking at home, great shops, and a vibrant visual and performing arts scene are surrounded by five mountain ranges that each has unique character and wilderness values. Sun Valley is America's oldest destination ski resort and has a sense of heritage and tradition that I adore. The area is pretty hard to reach from the coasts, which keeps it relatively untrammeled. There is really no 'industrial tourism' of the kind seen in the mountains of California, Colorado and Utah.
What makes this house unique
Hailey is the seat of government for Blaine County. The historic avenues district is in the center of town and is three blocks from Main Street, where the restaurants and shops are located. The home is less than 100 feet from the trail network (unlimited mountain biking in summer and 200 miles of groomed Nordic trails in winter). The town's outdoor skating rink is one block away, and is lighted for free skating into the evenings. Hailey is the most vibrant, four season town of the Wood River valley, and is home to many of the valley's finest restaurants, shops and performing arts events.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Your house in Hailey worked perfectly for our group!. It was spotlessly clean with all the supplies one needs. The kitchen was well equipped. Your information sheets were referred to several times....they were a good addition.
You might want to check out your fire alarms: our first night we were awoken by their sounding off at around 2AM. Luckily there were no more incidents. We did open the cover on the one in the double room but couldn't determine what set them off.
You have a lovely house and we were all grateful to have the use of it for 4 nights.
