  1. Hi All, I live in VA but have a buddy who lives in the Panhandle. Have a little backcountry ski experience including a trip up Scotchman’s Peak (YouTube comedy short available- have upgraded gear since then!) and Lunch Peak. Hoping to get back to ID this upcoming winter.

  4. Hello everyone! My girlfriend and I are fairly new to the area and to backcountry skiing/boarding but trying to get into it and learn to grow our snowboarding/wilderness knowledge. We love several outdoor sports and activities for different seasons but snowboarding has been probably my favorite for years. I love the sense of accomplishment of doing something under your own power and a more raw experience you get in nature and the outdoors that comes with skipping the ski lifts and crowds and earning your turns. So I look forward to learning what I can from you guys on this page, thanks in adavnace.
  5. Hey everyone, got turned on to this site by K.pOw. Looks like an awesome resource. Looking forward to being linked up with more local info and hopefully contributing something here and there.

    Thanks!

    Hello All!

    What a great website and wealth of resources! Thanks to everyone who contributes. I recently retired and plan to ski for a lot of the winter. I used to telemark only and skied backcountry for 20+ years, mostly in the Cascades (I lived in the Seattle area). For this year, I bought new AT gear. Interested in finding ski partners for both backcountry and in area. I'm pretty much available to ski any day the snow is good.

  13. Hi all! I grew up in Moscow but sold out and moved to Colorado where I got into backcountry skiing. Now I'm looking forward to visiting home and exploring the Idaho backcountry :)
