The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Roughing It in Sun Valley


5. An Oddball Day

Because you won’t have really experienced Idaho without participating in at least one bizarre or grueling physical challenge, enter one of the area’s regular weekend cross-country ski races (forms available at the Elephant's Perch). Afterward, soak your aching bones at the Frenchman's Bend Hot Springs, a short drive down Warm Springs Road, ten miles out of town. Check with the local Forest Service office (208-622-5371) about avalanche danger before dipping in.
