Visiting Idaho

Idaho ski resorts are internationally recognised, yet have none of the snobbery of some resorts elsewhere. The emphasis is very much on the snow and having a good time, with slopes and facilities to suit all levels.

Some ski resorts in Idaho, like Brundage, are very family-orientated. Many of the regional hills offer great value for money and are good for the whole family. Other resorts, such as Sun Valley, are more glamorous and upmarket.

Idaho has 18 alpine ski areas that are dotted across the entire state, with fantastic skiing and snowboarding for all levels. There are 46 Nordic ski areas and miles of snowmobile trails.

Ski accommodation is offered in hotels, apartments and traditional chalets. Many ski areas have accommodation and restaurants very near the slopes, which is ideal for families.
