Skiing in Idaho with kids

Idaho is the nation’s byway state, which means with their 31 scenic byways, you can take your family to explore every nook and cranny of its beautiful landscapes! And if you’re a family that LOVES the outdoors - Idaho should be your favorite place to visit!

Fun fact - Idaho has the most whitewater in the lower 48 states! So grab those rafts and get the kids taking on some pretty awesome challenges with companies like Sawtooth Adventure Company or Mountain River Outfitters.

Explore Idaho’s incredible underground with Crystal Gold Mine Tour or the majestic Craters of the Moon Caves, and you won’t be short of national parks for kids to escape into with Sawtooth National Forest, and the animal-tastic Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge.

Of course, Idaho also has culture with a plethora of museums like the Idaho Museum of Natural History, thrills with Silverwood Theme Park and water fun with Roaring Springs Water Park!

(And how could we not mention the Idaho Potato Museum - after all, the state is famous for them!)

Hiking in the summer, and skiing in the winter, and kids fun all year round, Idaho is a perfect destination for the next family adventure!
