Hello all,
Looking for input on IF area skiing options, where is the cheapest/best value skiing? Anyone experienced with IF Ski Club? We are low income but don't want to miss out on snow sports for the kids, they loved Ski Club through school last year but now we are homeschooling. Thanks for any input!

For beginners in the Idaho Falls area Kelly Canyon is your best bet. It's mostly a beginner hill, one of the drawbacks is that it can be crowded. Some of the area schools have classes and run buses there. They are open for night skiing most days too. Individual or family season passes are worth looking into. Another problem is that some years they aren't open all that long due to insufficient snow. I prefer Grand Targhee but it's more expensive and a longer drive.

The Idaho Falls Ski Club is a great resource to get discounts and deals. They are having their annual used equipment sale this weekend and you can learn about the club and join while you are at the sale. There is also a TGR (Teton Gravity Research) film playing at the Colonial Theater on November 18th. Advance tickets are $8 and I heard that admission includes a 2 for 1 ticket to Grand Targhee.

Kelly Canyon, the Idaho Falls Ski Club, Teton Gravity Research and Grand Targhee all have their own websites. I don't know whether I should post all their links but they are easy to find.

NCM,

I agree. Kelly is really both the closest and cheapest of area facilities.

Here are a couple of links to get you started: Idaho Falls Ski Club Home Page (Idaho Falls Ski Cub) - a LOT of links there.

And, for Kelly this is their link: Kelly Canyon Ski Resort

You asked at the perfect time as I think the Idaho Falls Ski Club is having their sale/swap this weekend. One of us should probably post it in the Idaho Falls things to do, as it is a BIG ANNUAL EVENT!

Hope those links help.....

MSR

Sorry, I posted the show date for the TGR film off the top of my head and I was wrong. It will be on November 21st at the Colonial Theater and is sponsored by Kelly Canyon Ski Patrol. Call 522-3914 for information. My apologies for the wrong date.
