Plan your next winter adventure in Idaho.

With 18 family-friendly resorts across the state from Sandpoint to Sun Valley, Idaho has always been the Northwest’s hidden winter gem. And they’ve got the powder to prove it with many resorts averaging over 300 inches of snow per year. Plus, 28,000 vertical feet of terrain, 20,000 acres, and the legendary backcountry offer up some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the nation for all skill levels. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, there’s more than enough heli and cat skiing to go around. For the little ones and newbies, beginner runs and ski school programs are in no short supply. Everyone can play at their own pace.

Idaho even offers something special for 5th and 6th graders – free skiing! The Ski Idaho Ski-free Passport gives 5th graders the chance to ski and ride three days free at all 18 Idaho resorts. And 6th graders get two free days at 16 Idaho resorts. It’s a great way to introduce kids to a favorite winter sport, while giving them an experience they’ll never forget.

So, head to Idaho to discover your family’s next favorite powder playground. Plan your next trip at
