50 Years Ago, Idaho Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

This winter has been pretty mild for the majority of our state so far. It can be easy to forget just how nuts our Idaho winters can actually be.

It’s possible you remember this storm vividly if you were living in Idaho at the time. After all, it’s considered the worst blizzard in our state’s history to this very day. You might find yourself extra thankful for our current low-key winter after reading all about it below!
