The Best Winter in the West

After a year like 2020, you’ve got a lot of making-up to do. Virtual birthday celebrations seem to always fall short of festive and spending your anniversary at home just doesn’t have that special feeling… Let’s pretend that all those back-fired attempts at creating special moments were just dry-runs; rehearsals; a practice, if you will. After all that prepping, now you’re ready for the real celebration. Do-overs are easy to do at Shore Lodge, a mountain-lake luxury retreat located in McCall, Idaho. This 77-room, rustic-luxury resort is situated on the shores of Payette Lake and across the Salmon River Mountains, providing all visitors with palatial views and endless opportunities for adventure. From expertly appointed guestrooms to refined in-room amenities Shore Lodge is THE perfect basecamp for your winter activities this season.


Winters in McCall are truly a snow lover’s paradise, and at Shore Lodge, we want to ensure that you have full access to all the adventures available, which is why our shuttle gets you to neighboring Brundage Mountain for some of the Best Snow in Idaho™. But it’s not all alpine and aerials. Enjoy backcountry skiing, snowmobiling to hot springs (more on that later), snowshoeing, sledding and more.


With over 500 miles of groomed trails, breathtaking bowls and some of the best backcountry powder anywhere, you quickly realize why McCall is one of the top snowmobile destinations in the United States. Come experience it for yourself.


No matter what the temperature is like outside, fun can be had in our heated outdoor pool and hot tub. After playing in the pristine snow, head into the warmth of our water, perfect for swimming laps, a hot soak or a fierce game of Marco Polo.


Just because there’s snow on the ground doesn’t mean your bike days are behind you. Take a spin through town or explore the wintery wonderland of the forest on a fat bike. These winter bikes feature 4-inch tires which provide excellent traction on snow and ice. Our Concierge can help you get set up with a bike rental and directions to the best trails in the area.

Now is the time to make up for lost time. Visit and book your stay to experience the best winter in the west!
