Winter in Coeur d'Alene



                              Snowmobiling                  Winter Activities in Coeur d’Alene

The winter blues can get you down like nothing else can. Fortunately for us, we live in one of the most beautiful places with dozens of things to do to keep us busy and in high spirits. Whether inside or outside, in the snow or not in the snow, Coeur d’Alene has something for you.



CDA in the winter doesn’t have to be that different than CDA in the summer. Some of these activities are the same, you may just have to dress differently. For example, Tubbs Hill, one of Coeur d’Alene’s most popular hiking places is just as enjoyable in the cooler months that winter brings. Bundle up, wear boots instead of sandals and go for a hike! Winter views are stunning, especially on a sunny day.

Another staple to winter in north Idaho is sledding on Cherry Hill. The slopes provide fun for children and adults at every level of excitement. When it’s a little too snowy for Tubbs hill, grab your sleds and the kids and head to Cherry hill. The town of CDA is unique in that it actually keeps three streets in town 100% unplowed just for sledding: Boyd Ave, Dollar Street, and Lost Ave.

There are also four ski resorts that are within about 60 miles of town, two of which include night skiing, as well as tubing and one has an impressive indoor waterpark for those of us that like to stay warm. If downhill skiing is a bit to fast you can always give cross country (Nordic) skiing or snowshoeing a shot. 

Many of the locals keep parts of lakes clear for ice skating and hockey. ...
