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.
