Pomerelle Mountain Resort offers excitement for both novice and experienced skiers. The mountain has 22 runs, two terrain parks, and a vertical drop of 1,000 feet. Snowmobiling and tubing are available, too — and every activity comes with a jaw-dropping view of the Magic Valley. But you don’t have to wait for winter: Pomerelle is open on weekends from July 4 through Labor Day for hikers and sightseers.
Make Lake Walcott State Park and National Wildlife Refuge your go-to weekend getaway, with beautifully maintained camping, fishing, and picnic areas. If you prefer areas that are a bit more untamed, try Lake Cleveland, a crater lake surrounded by flowers, or the remote and wild Independence Lakes.
