Sun Valley Company brings another world class ice show to the Wood River Valley on Saturday with Olympic medal winners Sasha Cohen and Evan Lysacek.

With two great skaters headlining the show, tickets are almost sold out, said ice show producer Lana Breazeale.

"We're excited to have them. It's going to be a great show," said Breazeale. "We've had a great year—we've just had outstanding skaters.

Cohen and Lysacek have had a great year too.

Lysacek, 21, makes his second appearance at the Sun Valley Ice Show. The past year has seen him win a bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, a silver medal at the U.S. Championships and a bronze medal at the World Figure Skating Championships.

Cohen's accomplishments are similar. She won a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, took a bronze medal at World and a gold medal at the U.S. Championships.

While only 21, Cohen is no stranger to Sun Valley. This year will mark her fifth appearance at the Sun Valley Ice Show.

In addition to her accomplishments on the ice, Cohen has recently achieved celebrity status, appearing on national television shows, featured in prominent national publications and appearing in several commercials and advertisements.
