Get Ready for a Star Spangled Fourth: on the ice and off

Sun Valley will kick off the busy summer season with some serious star power when Olympic gold medalist ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White headline Sun Valley On Ice.  The dynamic team became the darlings of the figure skating world when they stood high atop the podium at the 2014 Winter Games. Davis and White are also two-time World Champions, six-time National Champions, 2010 Silver Medalists, and perennial Sun Valley favorites.

“I am really looking forward to seeing our guest’s reactions as they walk through the amazing renovated Lodge and into the magic of Sun Valley On Ice,” said show producer Scott Irvine. “We are thrilled to have Davis and White for the holiday weekend. It just doesn’t get more American than having the country’s first gold medal ice dancers in Sun Valley beneath a sky full of stars.”
