Bill Bailey Travel Keeping You Up To Date This Season
It seems like just yesterday that vacationers were still enjoying the sound of the crackling campfires and swimming in warm sparkling lakes, how quickly things change. With Thanksgiving less than a week a way, ski resorts are gearing up for the big day. The big news for skiers and snowboarders is Idaho. According to the latest news, the first Idaho ski resort is set to start the lifts. Base depths of from a foot to 2 feet are already prepped and ready to go. Though early season skiing can be a touch messy what with the depths being a bit on the low side, it is not leaving the real snow lovers with any concern. Skiers and snowboarders are still being advised to watch for rocks until the depths build.
Bill Bailey Travel – The Idaho Ski Season
Traditionally, most think of Colorado, the mountains of Utah and Wyoming when they think of the ski season, but Idaho’s more mountainous region is becoming more popular in recent years. Places like Sun Valley are actually beginning to lead the way in popularity. The overcrowding at some of the more well known Colorado locations has pushed skiers to seek out an alternate route and leading them straight to Idaho. This year is promising to be a great one considering the timing of the opening of Idaho’s resorts.
Touting a less crowded, often less pretentious atmosphere, Idaho is making it simple for many snow lovers to decide where they will be skiing this winter. Idaho boasts 17 resorts, 94 lifts and 704 runs to choose from in addition to almost 26,000 vertical feet. If skiing and snowboarding are what you crave, load them up and grab your friends, the time has arrived!
