The snow season is approaching fast, as Boise residents like to be outdoors, and this winter here are a couple things you should check out with your friends and family.
Go Dog Sledding
When you hear about dog sledding, you probably immediately think about either Canada or Alaska. But did you know that Idaho has a long history when it comes to dog sledding as well? American Dog Derby is the longest-standing dog sled race that originated all the way back in 1917. It is a two-day event that happens every year in the third week of February.
Many dog sled teams gather to compete in a race that is 55 miles long. There is also a 100-yard Mutt Race for everyone who is interested in competing.
Visit the Hot Springs
There are more hot springs in Idaho than in any other state. Hot springs offer you a great way to keep warm during the cold winter days. You can easily find a lot of hot springs right off the highway. However, if you are one of those people who love to explore, then put on a pair of snowshoes and go on an adventure.
The all-natural Bonneville Hot Springs can be found in the Boise National Forest. It is a beautiful place that stays open throughout the entire winter. You can find the springs approximately one mile from the road, and because there can be a lot of snow on the way, the best solution would be to wear snowshoes.
Visit a Back country Yurt
There is a lot of public and privately owned yurts in Idaho. They can be found all over the state, and they make for a great base camp. These yurts provide access to many miles of a beautiful terrain, first turns for split boarders and skiers, as well as an access to some fresh powder.
Sun Valley Trekking operates six yurts. Each one of these yurts can accommodate anywhere from 16 to 19 people. Some of these six yurts even come with hot tubs. They will also prepare meals for you and use a snowmobile to transport your gear.
You can find another six yurts near Idaho City. They are slightly less luxurious, but that doesn't mean that they are not well-appointed and clean. Make sure to always reserve in advance though. These six yurts are quite popular.
