Sun Valley, America's first ski resort, welcomes families to experience the holidays from around the world through its Holiday Window Stroll, one of several activities planned for its Winter Wonderland Festival starting November 23.
The Window Stroll includes 13 international art displays resort-wide, connected by a "Celebrating the Language of the Holidays" theme. Each display honors the cultural diversity of the holidays and festive celebrations around the globe, from Italy to Norway, Kenya to China, Russia to Argentina. It is free and open to the public.
Sun Valley visitors will receive a "passport" to be stamped at every display, each bearing a holiday greeting in a different language. A seasonal confection will be given to each participant at the end of their stroll. Art will be displayed until January 4.
The Window Stroll is one of many Christmas events planned at historic Sun Valley Resort, which will sparkle with thousands of twinkling lights, a series of trimmed trees and holiday décor throughout the property.
In addition, kids of all ages will enjoy Breakfast with Santa each Saturday and Sunday from December 8 to 23, and visit the Sun Valley Gingerbread Display, a 20 x 30-foot village featuring Sun Valley's famed Bald Mountain and the Snowball Express Train.
Skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding and a plethora of winter outdoor sports will also be available to families throughout the holiday season, along with horse-drawn sleigh rides to Trail Creek Cabin, tubing, and festive holiday menus throughout the resort's restaurants.
