  1. We always comment on how beautiful Idaho is when we’re driving through, but we’ve never stopped to explore! I’d love to visit any of the ski areas, too.


  2. I’ve always thought Idaho was beautiful, but never had a chance to stop and explore it. This getaway sounds like the perfect way to check out the mountains!


  3. We haven’t had the chance to visit Idaho before, so we would love to experience it and explore! Skiing looks amazing!


  4. I’m a snowshoer–they have something like 17 places to do it. Galena Lodge sounds like an amazing place to stay for the North Valley Trails System!


  5. I just moved to Seattle a few months ago, and I’m still trying to explore the areas around here! I’ve been to Portland, headed to Vancouver in a few weeks, so Idaho is definitely the next stop. Would love to see the mountains and hit the slopes!


  6. I’ve been to Boise once, to pick up ski boots I find on Craig’s list. Random fun road trip to a super cool town! I would love to ski Idaho, check out sun valley, and visit some of the many hot springs!


  7. I haven’t been to Idahonsinve I was a kid and got a Jackalope postcard! I would live to find a real jack alone, or the sun… Both are rumored to be real!


  8. I would love to revisit Sun Valley where I spent my “honeymoon from hell” 40 years ago! Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Still had a blast and many crazy, fun memories!


  9. Snowboarding for me, bird watching for my partner, and hot springs for everybody! I’m way overdue to visit our neighbor Idaho. 🙂


  10. I’ve only driven through Idaho in my way to and from Montana and stayed at a campsite there once on our way. It’s truly beautiful and I would love to have a true visit there. A long time ago my dad went on a business trip from CT to Boise and when he came back he told me about rafting down the river there and I’ve always wanted to go since then.


  11. “Snow, Snow, It won’t be long before we’ll all be there with snow
    Snow, I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow”

    I’d like to take my mom to Idaho. She used to be an avid skier but doesn’t get the opportunity to get up to the slopes since my dad hurt his ankle. A free trip to Idaho might be just what she needs to get out there again! (And hopefully sing some more White Christmas songs about snow).


  12. I love Idaho in the summer and autumn, but I would be thrilled to spend time enjoying/exploring sites and activities in the winter!
