Bald Mountain, affectionately known as the “best little ski hill in Idaho,” sits in the Clearwater Mountains along the Gold Rush Historic Byway. Central Idaho is known for its towering peaks and vertical challenges, but Bald Mountain provides a quaint, family-friendly alternative. Around 25% of the terrain is designed specifically for beginners, 40% for intermediate skiers, and 35% for advanced and expert shredders. Plus, Bald Mountain lift tickets are very affordable, especially for the area.
