It’s Winter in Idaho and we all know what that means! With the temperatures dipping and surfaces being blanketed in ice and snow, resorts in Idaho are ready for all kinds of winter sports and leisure activities.
Winter Sports and Fun
Snowmobile + Hot Springs. After a day of snowmobiling, driving, and braving the freezing snow around Idaho, getting into a natural hot spring is the best way to end the day.
Just outside of McCall is Burgdorf Hot Springs, a hot springs park with warm cabins, ready to accommodate snowmobile riders.
Fun fact: During the winter, Burgdorf Hot Springs is only accessible via snowmobile.
Skiing + Celebrities. For over 80 years, Sun Valley has always been the favorite ski hills for many groups of people including families, couples, friends or squads, and even celebrities.
Even non-skiers can enjoy Sun Valley with all its shops, boutiques, ice skating rink, and the new bowling alley. Fun fact: The world’s first set of chairlifts were installed in Sun Valley.
Tubing + Family Reunions. For those in the mood for riding donuts down the tubing hill, Bogus Basin in Boise is the venue to reserve. Bogus Basin is perfect for alpine and Nordic skiing. Freestylers can also have a go at the resort’s terrain park.
Fun Fact: Bogus Basin can accommodate large groups of up to 100 members, perfect for family reunions.
Powder Runs + Snowcats. Brundage Mountain is not for the faint-hearted or the beginners. This side of the mountain is for those trying out tricks or practicing to increase personal speeds.
Brundage Mountain has the perfect powder (or type of snow) to catch skiers and snowboarders as they crash during practice. The resort also offers Snowcat trips covering 18,000 acres of backcountry terrain, which skiers can enjoy on their way up the mountain.
Fun Fact: Skiers can book a videographer from the resort to record their ski sessions.
