We took the gondola up for summer lunch. Pleasant quiet ride. The mountain offers beautiful panoramic views. Well worth the trip up. Allow time to eat and explore. Gondola up to restaurant takes 12 minutes one way.

I really enjoy skiing here, especially since it's a well known classic ski resort. Shops at the base and restaurants at the base and on the mountain. Great snow, it's Idaho after all. The mountain has something for everyone and everyone's skiing abilities. Be careful,...More

We were at Bald Mountain Feb 2-12 and it was a disappointment to us after months of planning this trip. Being from New England, we are intermediate skiers and mostly ski “blue” trails in mountains in Vermont. We’ve also had great trips to Colorado and...More
