    Thank you for the information. Great line up. Looks like I will have to make another trip to Sun Valley this year!

    Nathan and Evan Lysacek as headliners!
    I'm sure Nathan made quite an impression last year.

    Interesting collection of skaters....Some Oly hopefuls..., and then others that are perhaps on the cusp or too young (Chen, who spends much of his summer training in SV)
    No D/W, nor the Shib Sibs, or Chock/Bates...instead H/D and G/P
    Lysacek and Weir and Bradley (would have preferred to see Ryan at multiple shows)...no Max Aaron, Ross Miner, Jeremy Abbott?
    Alissa...a fixture at SV over the years...wonder if she will be able to jump again....
    and glad to see Kurt as well!

    I was fortunate enough to be living 2.5 hours from Sun Valley in the late 1980's and got to watch Olympic/world class skaters for 3 wonderful summers. Among them- Boitano, Orser (right after the 1988 Olys), Klimova-Ponomarenko, Usova-Zhulin, Debbie Thomas, Caryn Kadavy, to name just a few. In 2002 I made a special trip from Arizona to Sun Valley to watch Berezhnaya-Sikharulidze perform there.

    Sun Valley never fails to have a stellar lineup! Star after star. So much creative talent that has come out of their skating program it's unreal..

    I used to love going to these shows when I used to live in Idaho. They used to invite many international skaters, not just Americans. I wonder why that's not happening anymore?

    ETA: Just saw the post above mine - Surya Bonaly has been added.

    I don't suppose anyone here went to see the show this past weekend with Kurt, Hubbell & Donohue? Curious to hear about it...

    (With the exception of Surya Bonaly- but IIRC she lives in Vegas?) are they inviting only the North American skaters for the Sun Valley shows now?
