Idaho mountains received the ultimate gift over the holidays. A steady barrage of storms fattened up the slopes throughout the state—just in time for all the winter events that get rolling full swing in January.

The slopes have also been prepped perfectly for David Schor, a snowboarder from Oregon on his way to ride every mountain in Idaho this season. The last two winters he’s hit every mountain in Oregon and Washington. Learn more about him and his Idaho quest in this issue.

Events of note this month include Schweitzer’s Winter Carnival, a big weekend of celebration both on the hill and down in Sandpoint on the shore of Lake Pend Oreille. Plus, recreational racers of any ability can test their mettle in a variety of events at Tamarack and Brundage. Perhaps the most intriguing event coming up is probably the Pacific Northwest National Wife Carrying Contest at Lookout Pass. You can read all about that here too, plus the hottest lodging deals at places like Sun Valley, Schweitzer, Grand Targhee and Tamarack.

It’s been snowing a ton. It’s snowing right now. Winter in Idaho is as good as it gets. - Bill Jennings
