Snowshoeing in Spokane and North Idaho

See also

By January, the winter blues are affecting quite a few people in our area. Rather than succumb to dreary winter days, get out and enjoy what our region has to offer in the winter and embrace the season.

One fairly inexpensive activity that can be enjoyed with the entire family is snowshoeing. This sport can deliver a great cardio workout while taking in the beautiful scenery this area has to offer.

The Inland Northwest has no shortage of winter sporting destinations. There are several snowshoe trails on Mt. Spokane ranging from easy to difficult depending on your experience and fitness level. However, you will need to purchase a winter Sno-Park permit for vehicle parking.

North Idaho offers several snowshoe trails:

If you choose to snowshoe at Silver Mountain you can take a gondola ride up to the top and there is a 3-mile snowshoeing trail. Silver Mountain offers snowshoe rentals for your convenience. There is also lodging, restaurants, and an indoor water park for a true winter getaway.

For more trails, snow conditions, and parking permits visit the Idaho Parks and Rec website.
