Ski Resort Updates in Idaho

The state has welcomed a plethora of upgrades and additions at some of its top ski resorts for groups to enjoy

Across Idaho, ski resorts have made upgrades and welcomed new additions for the skiers in your group to appreciate as the 2023-2024 ski season begins.

Magic Mountain Resort in Twin Falls County in southern Idaho expanded its snow tubing area with more lanes and tubes, and Sno-Go trikes are now available to rent at the rental and retail shop. Group rates are available for the tubing hills for 20 or more.

Soldier Mountain ski resort is in the central Idaho city of Fairfield and will be offering a redesigned tubing park this season alongside two additional runs, providing more open terrain earlier in the season for skiers and snowboarders. The resort’s main lodge can host events of up to 250 attendees, with seating capacity for up to 100. The lodge also has a commercial kitchen and full bar.

The large-scale Sun Valley Resort, also in central Idaho, had two new lifts, Challenger and Flying Squirrel, replace the Warm Springs lift this winter, which boosts lift quality, efficiency, and sustainability while also improving skier circulation and access from the Warm Springs area.  The resort has 25,000 square feet of function space that works well for a range of event types and sizes.

In the northeastern region of the state, Schweitzer ski resort in Sandpoint added a high-speed detachable quad lift called the Creekside Express to reduce ride time to the summit. The resort will also kick off its first full season of its Cambium Spa, which offers a variety of treatments for eventgoers needing to relax and rejuvenate after a day spent on the slopes. Schweitzer also offers several on-site spaces to gather and network, including its new Humbird executive conference room and its Sky House located at the top of the mountain, accessible via chairlift.
