Join us in a semi-exploratory ski tour in the Boise Mountains near Idaho City. We will be breaking trail on old logging roads and through the forest, up to about 10 miles round trip with about 1,700 foot cumulative elevation gain. This tour is not part of the Idaho City Park-n-Ski system and passes are not needed.
Ski conditions should be good with ankle-deep powder on a firm base. Nonetheless, this will be a strenuous tour.
Strong intermediate ski skills, wider cross-country skis or light backcountry touring skis are required as are gaiters. Bring climbing skins if you have them, and a day pack with insulated water bottles (fill with warm water), extra layers, lunch and snacks, ski scraper.
No dogs, please. The parking area is about a 1.5 hour drive, one-way, from Boise.
