Quiet adventures with East Idaho Park N' Ski

If you've sampled eastern Idaho's spectacular state parks in summer, it's only natural to wonder what the winter experiences might offer. Thanks to Idaho's “Park N' Ski” program, the wilds of winter are calling you for an adventure.

There are 17 locations for the program across the state, offering nearly 200 miles of breathtaking backcountry scenery. All it takes from you is a permit purchase, trail gear (Nordic skis or snowshoes) and some reliable transportation onto and out of the property of your choice.

A three-day permit runs $7.50, and an annual pass goes for $25.

When you buy your pass, you can specify where you want the fees to go. Here in eastern Idaho, it's no surprise that plenty of funding goes to the beloved backcountry paradise of Fremont County. There are three designated areas to keep in mind: Buffalo River, Bear Gulch/Mesa Falls and Fall River. For details on each, as well as maps and trail guides, visit the activities page at parksandrecreation.idaho.gov.
