    ((sigh)) Nostalgic for judging/skating days when I went at least once each summer (and often got to skate in the opening number).

    I love SV shows and may be there in August. It's a fantastic event for skaters and the audience, alike. If I were a skater, that would definitely be one event I would really try hard to get.

    Wow! Haven't heard any news on Kyoko in years! Had no idea that they were still skating together or that she was even involved with skating anymore.

    Jeremy Barrett tweeted something recently about going up to Sun Valley - I wonder if he's working at the show.

    Thanks Sylvia, I should have guessed you'd either know or find out!

    Are Leonova & Khvalko not skating together anymore? They used to be a pro pair.

    I miss the Sun Valley skating shows. I used to go to several when I lived in Idaho- years ago.

    Some local articles:

    http://www.mtexpress.com/index2.php?ID=2005142622
    The ensemble features Olympic bronze medalist Jozef "Jumpin' Joe" Sabovcik, plus Craig Heath, Ashley Clark and Darlin Baker. Pairs skater Natalia Zaitseva returns with a new partner, Jeremy Barrett. Olympian Barrett, 28, from Sarasota, shared the 2010 U.S. pairs title with Caydee Denney.

    The summer core for a third year includes Navarro, 31, and Brent Bommentre, 28, the 2008-09 U.S. ice dancing bronze medalists. Back again is Russian pairs team of Elena Leonova and Andrei Khvalko, 1999-00 world professional champs.

    Leonova and Khvalko will be gone for two shows Aug. 28 and Aug. 4 because they're performing at the 2012 Summer Olympics in England. Replacing them will be Russian pairs Fiona Zaldua and Dmitri Sukhanov, the married adagio pairs team who have been professionals for 16 years.
    Ryan Bradley and Nathan Chen kick off the summer shows tonight; Jeremy Abbott will guest star this Saturday: http://www.mtexpress.com/index2.php?ID=2005142761

    ETA: Ilia Kulik and Courtney Hicks have been added as the guest stars for the August 11 show.

    They're still skating together and as busy as ever. Here's a July 6, 2012 interview with them about their 15(!) summers performing Sun Valley: http://www.mtexpress.com/index2.php?ID=2005142809
    For 15 summers, Russian figure skaters Elena Leonova and Andrei Khvalko have done just that. The two-time world professional champions (1999 and 2000) are two of the core skaters in Sun Valley Resort's long running summer ice shows—a tradition almost as old as the resort itself.
    The pairs/adagio skaters started skating in Sun Valley shortly after they were married (in Reno, Nev.). Then they lived in San Francisco—today they have two children and are based out of Moscow, Russia.
    The Idaho Mountain Express caught up with the family to find out what life as a Sun Valley summer transient is like.
    ...
    IME: Are your girls fans of ice-skating?
    Leonova: Annabelle, who is 3, really enjoys skating. This is the best place to introduce kids to skating. Usually it's cold at an ice rink, indoors and dark. But here it's gorgeous—you're wearing shorts, surrounded by mountains and you're on the ice. Our little one has a new skating dress and she really just loves it. But Liza, at about age 5, we figured out this is not what she wants to do. She loves to be on the ice and run around, but this is not her thing, to be a figure skater.
    ...
    IME: What are your long-term plans? Are you going to keep moving back and forth between Russia and the U.S.?
    Leonova: The reason we're in Moscow now is because we are still Russian skaters. Ice-skating is big in Russia right now so we have so many shows. We moved back there [from San Francisco] six years ago, but it was always going to be a temporary move. We'll be there definitely through winter Olympics in Sochi [Feb. 7-23, 2014]. But after the Olympics, when there will be a new generation of professional Russian skaters, that will be a good time to come back to the U.S. and maybe start focusing more on a teaching career.
