Visit the Garden of Infinite Compassion at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden and touch the prayer wheel that was blessed by the Dalai Lama.
Stroll Sun Valley’s numerous galleries on a gallery tour as you hobnob with private collectors, patrons and artists. Gallery walks occur one Friday almost monthly, which is where you will find the free Chardonnay and brie. Or grab a map and take your own tour.
Take a paragliding flight off of Baldy with Fly Sun Valley and see all the valley from the perspective of an eagle. Afraid of that much air under your wings? Take the gondola to Roundhouse for a glass of wine and fondue with the most spectacular view of the valley anywhere.
Lore Lusting. The pictures hanging in the hallways of Sun Valley Lodge tell a story of quintessential cool (Ernest Hemingway at his standup desk putting the finishing touches on For Whom the Bell Tolls, JFK and family laughing on skis under a mid-winter sun, Marilyn Monroe dancing the foxtrot to the Glenn Miller Orchestra.) Go get inspired by the stories and the lore, before visiting Hemingway’s watering hole(s) or grave and the Sun Valley Museum of History.
