It’s a cold one in North Idaho today! The mercury has been dipping down into the single digits, and the snow and ice has made its way back into our lives. Winter has made a comeback, and we at the North Idaho Bed and Breakfast Association are in love with it.
Some folks just can’t wait for the snow and ice to melt and the sunshine to return. But some of us are already excited for next winter as well. Powder junkies on top of Schweitzer Mountain or Lookout Pass rejoice when the thermometer goes lower, and the weatherman reports snow, and our inns become the base camp for happy skiers and snowboarders who need a warm, relaxing place to sleep and eat after a long day of hitting the slopes.
The many hiking trails in our area are covered in a thick layer of white snow, making them the perfect place for a brisk, peaceful hike. You just might have the whole forest to yourself if you head out on a cold, snowy morning! Sit back with a thermos full of tea or hot chocolate and enjoy the sound of a babbling brook alongside the snow-covered banks. A winter snow hike can be extremely refreshing and exciting!
