Meeting Trips

Cooking in the Wild

Steve Weston is an Expedition Chef and author. On his camping culinary crusader’s quest to save legions of hungry campers from freeze-dried doldrums, Steve wrote a bestselling cookbook, In The Wild Chef - a roadmap and culinary bible for all of you who demand Backpacking Gourmet Snob Cookery!

Concerned about food weight on a multi-day trip? Steve’s book shows you tricks for creating delicious meals that are great for backpacking. He’ll demonstrate his approach and have some books on hand for purchase.

Kegs for a Kause

The Payette Brewing company is hosting a fundraise at their taproom (733 S. Pioneer Street in Boise). They pledge to donate 50% of beer sales towards repairing damage to the Idaho City Park-n-Ski system caused by the Pioneer Fire last summer. There will also be auctions and reservation dibs for the yurts.

Tenth Year Celebration

Help us recognize Idaho Mountain Recreation’s 10 Year Anniversary and celebrate our start of a second decade!

IMR was founded in February 2007 by folks who enjoy self-propelled outdoor activities in a responsible way. We provide education, lectures and lead trips in Idaho and beyond.

We’ve organized a retroactive look over the years of IMR activities, trips and stories. Refreshments will be served.

Wapta Icefields Traverse

IMR member Jim Pace will present slides of his adventure on one of the premier North American backcountry hut-to-hut ski tours in the snowfields of the Canadian Rockies. He'll also discuss the pre-planning and on-tour logistics for folks wishing to put together their own trip next spring.

Owyhee River Journals

If you missed Bonnie Olin's fabulous presentation about her book and the Owyhee River, now is your chance. Her presentation has also expanded to include a slideshow that covers the entire Owyhee region, Nevada to the Owyhee Reservoir in Oregon, as well as increased detail on it's unique qualities and geology.

Bonnie will be in the region for two presentations - and likely these will be her last in the area for a long while.
