Default Good Place to CC Ski in Idaho?

I live near Seattle and the snow is so wet. Are there some good places to ski in Idaho?

I live in eastern Idaho so I can only say for this area. (Island Park, Ashton, Idaho Falls, Pocatello)

I have been hitting the Bear Gulch / Mesa Falls trails quite regularly these past couple of weeks as I just got my first set of skis for Christmas. The trails are pretty nice, but icy and bare in some spots. The weather channel has us pegged for a few feet of snow in the next couple of days though so that will change. Yesterday I took the eastern side of the trail and went out to the falls and back which is an 8 mile round trip. There are a few lookout areas on the west side of the trail. These trails are in-track only that intersect some with the snowmobile trails.

Here is the link to the trails around this area too. Caribou-Targhee National Forest - Winter Sports:XC Skiing/Snowshoeing


There are more trails in Island Park and Harriman State Park about 20 miles north of me that I have yet to hit this season. I see folks in the parking area in the morning gearing up to go out when I drive by for work though. AFAIK these are in-track trails.

And about 50 miles north of me there are the Rendevous Ski Trails in West Yellowstone, MT. I have been on these trails a couple of times and I have to say they are pretty sweet. Awesome grooming, and I like the terrain. These trails are both in-track and skate. Also seeing this town is the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park you could take a day and go into the park and ski those trails.

Living in Seattle, the easiest Idaho locations will be in North Idaho along the I-90 corridor. Silver Mountain in Kellog has nordic trails. In addition, Schwietzer up in Sandpoint does as well. Mt. Spokane also has a networs of groomed nordic trails.

This page is for those of us who live to shred... When we are not shredding all we think about is the next time we can shred... Things like work, school and other important but not as fun as riding stuff often get in the way of shredding but with night riding you can get your fix.. Fit in a couple runs after work or school! Even a quick lap or two before you head to the bar!
