15 Mar Get Active at Kelly Canyon Ski Resort
Whether you are a ski enthusiast or you love to hit the trails by foot or on your bike, Kelly Canyon is a great place to visit while staying at the Snake River Hideout. Located just 20 miles from the park, Kelly Canyon is an alpine ski area nestled within the Targhee National Forest.
Kelly Canyon Ski Resort
With an elevation of 6,600 feet above sea level at its summit and a vertical drop of 1,000 feet, Kelly Canyon offers 640 acres of slopes. In addition to receiving an annual snowfall of 200 inches, the ski area is further supplemented with snowmaking to ensure the perfect run is always available. For downhill skiers, the ski resort offers four double chairlifts and a rope tow, but Nordic skiing and snowshoeing trails are also available just beyond the lifts.
Of course, if you are visiting during the summer months, skiing will not be on your agenda. In this case, Kelly Canyon still has something to offer! Whether you like to run, hike or bike, the trails offer great opportunity to explore the outdoors. You can even rent a bike and a helmet from the resort if you do not have one of your own to use!
