Grand Targhee is reporting over 16″ of fresh powder in the last 48 hours and Saturday is “Ski for Free Day” at East Fork Mink Creek Nordic Center. This weekend is perfect for any snow-filled plans!

CURIOUS WHY WE DO THIS?
I started organizing local events for a few reasons. Mainly, I hear so many people say that there’s nothing to do in southeast Idaho. As you can see, that is simply not the case, but tracking down all of the fun can be labor intensive. I do all the digging, so all you have to do is show up! Secondly, as a Realtor I help many families new to the area get acquainted with our wonderful hometown, and this local event guide was my gift to them!
If you’re just a regular local like me, drop a hello in the comments, or if perhaps you’ve been wanting to know if the grass might be greener somewhere else, click here for a fast (free) home valuation to see what your home might sell for! I’d love to help you “make it home”!
