Idaho Winter

Targhee National Forest

Winter visitors to Idaho, pay a visit to the 1,643,501-acre Targhee National Forest – the ideal spot for skiing, snowboarding, and even skijoring.

Cross-country ski down endless trails throughout the forest, gas up the snowmobile for an adventure through the snow, or stretch out for a classic snowball fight with family this winter in the Gem State.

Make your way to the 700,000-acre Ashton/Island Park Ranger District – home to 615 miles of roadway and 172 miles of trails for winter hiking. Winter recreation abounds in this little chunk of northeastern Idaho.

Downhill skiing and snowboarding can be found at the Squirrel Meadows Guard Station, while snowmobiling enthusiasts may roar down the endless miles of roadway in the Ashton/Island Park Ranger District – including Cave Falls Snowmobile Trail, Chick Creek Flat Snowmobile Trail, and Eccles Snowmobile Trail.

For those looking to get on their feet, check out the many cross-country skiing and snowboarding opportunities in the district. Zip your way down the Fall River Ridge Cross-Country Skiing Trail, or snowshoeing across the Parking Area Snowpark.

Back at the Squirrel Meadows Guard Station, you can try your hand at mushing, and even skijoring – a winter sport where a skier is pulled by dog, horse, or motorized vehicle. Find your favorite winter activity in the Targhee National Forest near Driggs and Idaho Falls.
