Have you ever visited Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho? It’s a secret gem just three hours outside of Boise and this January is the perfect time to discover this under-the-radar ski town in a breathtaking location. Think of it as a very authentic, lakeside haven for active travelers and sports enthusiasts alike – add an amazing spa experience and winter festivities galore and that’s just the beginning.
The coveted Winter Carnival , held on January 27-February 5, 2017, is the best time to take part in all that McCall has to offer, including snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and skiing. The McCall, Idaho Winter Carnival offers snow sculpture viewing, fireworks, parades, and a true carnival atmosphere over the course of two weekends.
Where to stay: A McCall staple, Shore Lodge is Idaho’s hidden gem tucked in the Payette National Forest, abutting the glacial waters of Payette Lake. The lakeside haven is an epic destination for active travelers and avid sport enthusiasts. Just 10 minutes from ‘the best powder in Idaho’ as rated by Ski Magazine, the 77-key lakefront resort is located in one of the best hidden ski towns to visit in 2016 as designated by National Geographic.
Why: McCall offers travelers the perfect place to enjoy extraordinary snow excursions this winter season. Shore Lodge guests can go snowmobiling to hot springs for a dip, skiing or snowshoeing at the nearby Brundage Mountain Resort, after-dark alpine skiing to a moonlit yurt for dinner beneath the pines at Ponderosa State Park. Active travelers seeking respite from the day’s long pursuit can enjoy the resort’s award-winning spa, The Cove, that offers a menu of nature-based treatments, saltwater immersion pools and McCall granite boulders that reflect Idaho’s acclaimed natural hot springs. During the holiday season, Shore Lodge offers Christmas tree hunting, complete with hot cocoa around a fire, for guests looking to transform their Northwestern vacation into one that feels right at home.
