    Get ready to pay a lot of money to live there and cater to some real snobs. But it is really beautiful country and top notch skiing is in the area.
    Plus, Hemingway blew his head off near there.

    You will need to live somewhere 15-20 miles away with the other little people. but other than that, it'd be a fabulous gig in a lot of ways.

    Only a couple of high schools to worry about -- Wood River High is 4A (about 800 students 9-12) and The Community School (mascots is the Cutthroats) is a semi-private(?) 1A school for the people who don't want to send their children to the public school with their housekeeper's kids. But you get to cover skiing, snowshoeing, and lots of other outdoorsy type sports with only one deadline per week.

    I wouldn't mind this job.

    Sun Valley has some of the best skiing in the nation if you can afford it. Sun Valley is definitely the new version of Aspen, at least to the rich folk and Harry.

    Uhh, Sun Valley was Aspen long before Aspen was Aspen.
