What are the best ski resorts in Idaho?
One of the best places to visit in the winter in Idaho is also one of the most significant: Sun Valley. The eponymous Sun Valley Resort opened in 1936, and, in addition to being America’s oldest ski resort, it was also home to the country’s first chairlift. In the 80+ years since, Sun Valley has become a beloved and popular wintertime destination in the U.S., earning numerous accolades from countless media outlets. Because in addition to offering an abundance of winter recreation, Sun Valley is also one of the most objectively beautiful places in the country — especially during the cold months. Under fresh powder, Sun Valley’s endless robin’s egg blue skies seem even more brilliant, with the sun bouncing off the sparkly snow in the most dazzling of ways. Of course, even if Sun Valley — and Idaho, more broadly — doesn’t get a bunch of snow this winter, it’s still a totally captivating and enjoyable place to visit in the colder months!
Is there any snow tubing in Idaho?
Here in Idaho, we take winter recreation seriously. Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, we have it all. However, one of our favorite winter activities is snow tubing. Not only is tubing super fun, but it doesn’t require any special skills and pretty much anybody can do it. All you need to do is sit down, push off, and enjoy zooming down the hill at top speeds! And while we’re lucky to live in a state that boasts plenty of tubing opportunities, Gateway Parks is next level. Gateway Parks can be found within Eagle Island State Park. This unique winter park boasts fun, affordable recreation that people of all ages can partake in. Visitors of the park will experience world-class terrain for snowboarding and skiing. However, the tubing hill is the main attraction, and rightfully so. This is the best snow tubing park in Idaho!
