For winter recreation and inspiration, Idaho has the best you will find. And it’s not just the superstar resorts. Another breed of hill thrives in remote corners of the state. These small community mountains have a friendly vibe and dedicated groups of supporters, pouring their love into the mountain so people in the sticks have somewhere affordable to ski and ride.

I took an incredible Idaho journey covering the full spectrum of Idaho mountain life. Our stops included Bald Mountain, where the price of a season pass hasn’t changed since 1959—to Tamarack, where hundreds of millions of dollars are being poured into a world class four season resort. At all these hills, the snow is the same—as well as the passion for winter and gravity induced adrenaline. Read about my journey in this issue.

You’ll also learn about the latest at the big time hills of Schweitzer and Grand Targhee, plus their little brother with the big snow: Pomerelle. And don’t forget to check out our latest feature—instant access to every snow report in Idaho—so you know where to go when it snows.
