Ketchum is known as the place where Ernest Hemingway is buried.  His house is still standing but you can only see it from afar because it’s not open to the public. Other than skiing, people from all over go for hiking and trail riding. Ketchum is a ranching (and mining) town. Bring a towel and a bathing suit and go to the region’s hot springs. They are mostly undeveloped areas of the wilderness. Or head toward to Galena Pass into the magnificent Stanley Basin. Oh, if you’re into ice-skating, the rinks in Ketchum and the neighboring Sun Valley are astonishing.
