George has turned the Ketchum Starbucks located at the Visitors’ Center into the place where everybody knows your name! Just ask everyone who has turned the space into their second, very comfortable living room. But George does much more than steam a mean skinny double cap. This avid and accomplished fly fisherman, hunter and skier is happiest outside under bluebird Idaho skies. An involved father of two and business partner to his wonderfully patient wife, Jane, the Rizzos moved to Sun Valley 13 years ago to take advantage of the amazing quality of life. He brings what he calls ‘very little’ skating experience to the rink, but that won’t slow him down. At work and in town, George’s goal each day is to put a smile on someone’s face. He is sure to do that center ice times a few thousand!
George is competing for Camp Rainbow Gold.
