Brundage Mountain and McCall Winter Carnival

Do you want to play in the snow this week-end?  Brundage Mountain just got over five feet of snow and 100% of their runs are open.  This is a great ski mountain with wide runs and excellent snow.  Head North on Hwy 55 just 8 miles past McCall.

If you decide to go North this week-end, you can ski/snowboard/cross country ski/snowshoe in some great snow PLUS enjoy the McCall Winter Carnival.  The carnival runs from January 27 to February 5, 2012.  It’s loaded with events to see and participate in. Whether you would like to see a parade, hear live music, snowshoe golf, snow tube, see plays or see hockey, there is something for everyone.  The sculptures are always incredible too.  Here is a schedule of events:

This could be a fun day trip or head there for the week-end!



Day Trip to Gold Fork Hot Springs

Gold Fork Hot Springs

If you are looking to get away and enjoy a beautiful drive with a unique destination in sight, you should consider Gold Forks Hot Springs located in Donnelly, ID.   It’s an awesome place to soak your weary bones.

We go to Gold Forks Hot Springs a few times a year.  It’s clean and has several pools with varying temperatures.  Kids and adults enjoy soaking and playing in the hot pools any time of year.  It’s especially gratifying if you have been working outside shoveling or chopping wood OR if you have been playing outside skiing, hiking, snowmobiling.

It’s located off Hwy 55 just before you get to Donnelly, ID.  Here is a link:
