A little history about Dick Barrymore; Dick Barrymore was a pioneer in the ski film industry who spent over 30 years shooting ski films around the world. He began his career as a ski filmmaker at the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, CA. The next three decades he traveled from continent to continent. He rarely had a scipt in mind for his films. He took things as they came and was a master at improvision.

Best know for his action ski films, Barrymore was first and formost a man who loved to travel and enjoyed people. A few of his many films include; (Last of the Ski Bums), (Wild Ski’s), (The Derby). Once you watched a Barrymore movie there was no mistaking his talent behind the camera or ability to tell a story, in which he had many…

Among his star skiers in his movies were locals; Jim Stelling, Charlie McWilliams, Joey Cordeau, Mat Luhn, Dave Woodham, Alan Rickers, Scott Curtis and of course his son Blake Barrymore Aka; Ted Shred.

In 2000 Barrymore was inducted into the U.S. National Ski Hall of Fame along with John Jay and Warren Miller.

He like many successful entrepreneurs was involved in every aspect of production. He did most of his own filming with hand-held cameras and was the sole editor. Sadly, Dick passed away in 2008 of Brain Cancer!

This Condo is fully equipped with all the comforts of home, affordable and close to all the mountain has to offer!

Perfect place to bike, ski, relax in Sun Valley

  • 5 of 5

Place was great, creek, picnic table and park tool bike stand right off patio; what else can you ask for ;). Cool and quiet, beds were comfortable (not too hard or soft). Everything in the condo was clean and worked well. Marilyn was great to deal with, kept it real and simple (no management companies to deal with).

Will definitely be back. Thanks Marilyn!

Great location, nice condo, sleeping by the creek is great!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Just a couple of blocks from down town, so no need to drive. Well stocked with essentials. The master bedroom windows open up to trail creek, creating a great nights sleep. Great mattress too.

A little piece of ski history

  • 5 of 5

Had a great couple of days in Ketchum. The apartment is as advertised, very well furnished with comfortable beds and well stocked for the chef. It is walking distance to Ketchum, but with enormous berms of snow on the road, walkers take their life into their own hands. Very quiet with a bubbling stream within earshot. Alas, the BBQ was buried in another huge berm of snow. The apartment is decorated for the true ski movie aficionado. Dick Barrymore was a father of ski movies, and it is great to enjoy a real piece of ski history. Marilyn was very easy to work with as we checked in a wee bit early and out a wee bit late. Thanks Marilyn. Alas, the upstairs steam shower was a bit complicated and we could not get the water temp down to be able to use it, so the 3 of us shared the downstairs shower (not all at once mind you). It was a very easy place to relax and enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of home. Oh, and the snow was EPIC! Thanks again Marilyn. Would highly recommend this place. Hopefully, Marilyn and Cole wil get the showers working a little more smoothly and less complex. Loved the picture of Gaston Rabuffat! What a treat.

Great location and perfect place for a family trip.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our nanny and three month old. Easy access to both Ketchum and Bald Mountain - can easily walk to most of the restaurants in town and the ski slope is only a few minute drive away. Cool steam rooms were an added benefit and the kitchen is well stocked with all of the essentials. Check in and check out process was a breeze and the condo seems well kept. Overall a great stay and a great value for the area!

Convenient Condo - close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Ketchum is such a cute little mountain town. We were there to ski and were blessed by the snow Gods!! Got 10+ inches the first night so skiing was amazing. Rent a car as condo is very convenient to walk to town but with the snow it was great we had a car. Owner was great and easy to partner with!! She had suggestions on restaurants and ski rental places, which were great. Condo is a cozy size but great for 2 people. Kitchen was easy to work in and most important, beds were comfy.

Minutes walk to town

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a quick little trip to Sun Valley for a weekend getaway and found this little gem on short notice. It is within a 2 minute walk to downtown Ketchum, the heart of Sun Valley. Very impressive condo with fantastic amenities and upgrades. Very nice backyard area that is right on the river. We slept with the balcony door open to enjoy the sounds of the Bigwood River rolling by. I have stayed at two condos from this owner and highly recommend them. Very attentive owners with fast responses. We will be back!
