Ski Town USA
The town of McCall is dubbed “Ski Town USA” and there’s truth to this statement. Most ski towns in North America are filled with hotel and restaurant chains. And sadly, even the ski resorts are owned by mega-corporations. Not McCall! It still holds the feeling of a true ski town, back in the 70’s. There is charm. Every store and lodging is a small business. The best part though is the resorts are still owned by people who LOVE to ski instead of just making a profit. Talk about my kind of place! If only the rest of America could be like this.

The “Town Deer”
Throughout the entire town of McCall you'll notice deer just chillin’ in people’s yards. We’re not talking one or two but rather dozens just moseying through town. When we get to the breakfast join we had to ask, “What’s up with the deer?” Apparently, they are famous in town. They’re a decent sized herd showing up after hunting season begins (super smart!). They stay around town, foraging for food throughout the winter, to finally disappear once spring arrives. Talk about a great plan!
Things to do in the Winter
Why travel? Is it to leave your daily stresses behind? Spend time with family or friends? Party? For us, it’s about trying things that we wouldn’t experience at home. Whether to enjoy food we can’t find anywhere else or to escape the crowds, as you will see below McCall has lots of activities and things to see that don't exist anywhere else!
