Here Are the 12 Best Places To Go Sled Riding In Idaho This Winter

Sledding is one of those quintessential winter activities that no snow season is complete without–at least, at the rare times that we have snow that actually sticks around for more than a few hours. But considering all of the snow Idaho has seen over the past few week (insane weather changes and phenomena aside), it’s safe to say that winter is heavily upon us.

While skiing and snowboarding tend to be a big deal at our resorts and mountain getaways, if you’re like me, you might not have the balancing and shredding skills to make that happen. Plus, you’re never too old to go sledding– and talk about the perfect family day out! A generic red disc or classic sled are both good options for this beloved classic, but tubing is another delightful way to speed down Idaho’s hilly terrain. Fortunately, ideal sledding spots are never-ending in the Gem State–you just have to get out away from the main roads and explore a bit! All that said, here are some of Idaho’s top-rated spots for sledding, tubing and good old fashioned winter fun.

It’s easy to find the perfect sledding spot around here; the real challenge is nabbing a hill before the crowds come! If that’s the case, sledding’s dangerous relatives include ice-blocking, hooky-bobbing, and 4-wheeler towing. Which is your favorite?
