Locations of All Ski Resorts in Idaho

The Gem State truly is a gem when it comes to great ski resorts. Scattered throughout the jagged majesty of the Sawtooth Mountains and the peaks of the Lost River Range are 13 different ski and snowboard resorts boasting an average of over 1700 feet of vertical drop. From small, secluded snow parks to bustling tourist destinations, Idaho has the ideal snow retreat for you. Several major airports and resorts are within driving distance of Boise, Idaho Falls and Spokane, so travelers don’t have to give up creature comforts to enjoy the Idaho snow. Likewise, secluded mountain retreats are available for those wanting a relaxed vacation at the foot of a snow covered mountain resort. Adventurous snow lovers are encouraged to visit Hells Canyon, the United State’s deepest canyon, or the Shoshone Falls, which boast a greater plunge than Niagara.
