Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:
Don’t go where the path may lead,
go instead where there is no path and leave a trail
This quote is very fitting when picking your next ski destination. Sure, you can go where the trodden path may lead to places like Utah, Lake Tahoe, or even Jackson Hole. But, why? Adventure is about going somewhere that’s different. Somewhere that hasn’t been found by the bustling crowds. Last winter we ventured north to a place filled with adventure, cuisine, and skiing unlike anywhere else in the country: Idaho. Check out our newest edition to the Travel Guides: McCall, Idaho. Be a true pioneer and blaze a new trail… head to McCall, Idaho!
