It’s not ski season, but it feels like Christmas for the local economy of Sun Valley / Ketchum Idaho. The tarmac at Friedman Memorial Airport looks like a privet jet valet center as Allen & Co holds it’s semi secret, five day, invite only media summit comprised of current and prospective clients and their families. The guest list is not made public, but expected attendees include Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his family, New.’s Corps Rupert Murdoch, Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger, Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Sumner Redstone, Warren Buffett, the list goes on and this year it seems Lebron James has been asked to make an appearance.


Ideas get hatched, deals get made, the future of media pontificated in the heart of ski country. It makes perfect sense to us that they would look to the mountains for inspiration. No matter the season, the mountains bring out the best in people!
