Snow Sports in Idaho
Nothing compares to snow sports in Idaho and winter sports enthusiasts look forward with anticipation each year for winter to arrive.
Idaho boasts 18 ski resorts throughout the state totaling more than 28,000 vertical feet of snow-soaked terrain. Whether at world-famous Sun Valley Resort, community icon Bogus Basin in Boise, or top-ranking Schweitzer Mountain in the North Idaho panhandle, you can be skiing during the sun-filled days of winter and relaxing with friends around a fire pit that evening.
Snowmobiling is such a big deal here; it’s common to see vehicles with a pair of skis in tow daily throughout the winter. Idaho’s backcountry transforms into a winter playground for snowmobile devotees, from groomed snowmobile trails to untouched snow with vast dramatic landscapes.
Tubing is a family favorite, and you don’t have to travel far once winter rolls around. At the first sign of snow, you’ll see kids of all ages rushing to the local hills for some tubing fun. Many of the ski resorts offer long, fast hills for tubing. And there are even artificial snow tubing facilities in some cities that don’t receive much snow; that’s how much we love tubing!
Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are other wintertime favorite snow sports in Idaho. Both are beautiful ways to explore the natural snowscape wonderland.
Let’s face it, Idahoan’s love winter, and with this much majestic beauty and nature calling, it’s easy to see why.
