  1. New guy, moving to Spokane soon to join the party. Got my first taste of backcountry in the Presidentials of NH and then spent a few years exploring the goods and checking off some bucket list lines in Colorado. Been stuck in the south for a few years though, so I’m absolutely stoked to get back at it!

  8. Hi everyone, thank you for putting this site together. I’ve lived in Idaho/Eastern Washington my entire life but have done just a little backcountry skiing here. My experience in the backcountry has mostly been in Colorado but I know there are some great areas here. Along with skiing I also enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing. I can’t wait for winter and I’m excited to get out there this year and meet some of you. Thanks again.

    Welcome @PhorestPhil
    Well, living depends on what you need and want to spend. Live in Sandpoint... $$$$, Live in CDA $$$, Live in Kellogg or Silver Valley $$ (notice the # of $ I placed, LoL).
    As for backcountry access, insane! However a bit of that depends on if you have a sled or not. Without, some pretty long tour days unless you relegate yourself to a few areas (Lookout pass, Willow Pk, St Regis basin - High avy, or out of resorts).

    This could be a long conversation to discuss the in/outs of the different areas (amenities, housing, work available, etc).

    Flip through tour reports a bit for understanding who gets where and how.

    Welcome to the site! We have several ex-East Coasters here!!!
