Most People Don’t Realize The Country’s Longest Gondola Ride Is Right Here In Idaho

Everybody knows that Idaho is a paradise for skiers and snowboards during wintertime. With many top notch mountain resorts to choose from, many people who participate in winter sports count down the days until summer ends and the first snowfall begins. But what happens to those mountain resorts during the summer? Many people don’t realize that they are still open for summer time activities as well.

Silver Mountain Resort in Kellogg, Idaho is open all year long and although the snow covered mountains may be the resort’s highlight during winter, it’s the gondola ride that becomes the thing to do in summer! This isn’t just any gondola ride, though. It’s the longest and most scenic one in all of North America!
