ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals Offers Fourth Night Free during Sun Valley Nordic Festival and Boulder Mountain Tour

The vacation rentals company also offers up to 25% off regular lodging rates plus discounted lift tickets for festivalgoers and race competitors with Winter White Sale promotion

4th Night of Lodging FREE during
the Sun Valley Nordic Festival
In Sun Valley, Idaho, talk of skiing doesn’t necessarily refer to speeding down the slopes. While the Sun Valley Resort offers some of the finest alpine skiing in the country, the area has earned a reputation as “Nordic Town, USA” for its unmatched trail quality, terrain and training programs for cross-country skiers. This winter ResortQuest Sun Valley will welcome the Boulder Mountain Tour cross country ski race and Sun Valley Nordic Festival.

As a member of the Sun Valley/Ketchum Chamber & Visitors Bureau, one of the primary sponsors of the Nordic Festival, ResortQuest is offering a Winter White Sale promotion for guests attending the Festival and Boulder Mountain Tour. Guests can save 20% off regular rates for a two- or three-night stay or get their fourth night free at participating properties in Sun Valley and the surrounding areas, including lodging in River Run, Warm Springs and Elkhorn Resort Village. The offer also includes 20% off lift tickets when purchased at time of booking. This special rate is available for stays from now through Feb. 15.

The third annual Sun Valley Nordic Festival will feature a wide variety of activities and events over a nine-day period leading up to the 37th Boulder Mountain Tour. The Boulder Mountain Tour is one of the longest running and most respected cross country ski races in America, attracting skiers from across the country to the scenic Wood River Valley. The festival events will kick off on Saturday, Jan. 28, culminating with the race on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012. Festival events will take place at locations throughout Hailey, Ketchum and Idaho’s Wood River Valley, with the 32-kilometer Tour starting at Galena Lodge located at 15187 Highway 75 in Ketchum.

“The prevalence of Nordic sports and the quality of the associated resources here distinguish Sun Valley from most other North American ski resorts,” said Debbie Fox, general manager, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Sun Valley. “Guests interested in trying Nordic activities can find ResortQuest properties near the Nordic & Snowshoe Center or along the Wood River Trail, a 20-mile groomed trail perfectly suited to cross country skiing and snowshoeing.”
