Now in its 9th year, the Idaho skate trip has been a favorite for many folks. It's in Kellogg, Idaho (about 40 miles east of Coeur d'Alene off I-90) right on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. This is a lovely 72 mile paved trail stretching east/west from Mullan to Plummer with great scenery and some interesting wildlife. (Check out http://friendsofcdatrails.org. You'll see how awesome the trails are!!!)
Skate as much as you like, at your own pace and at your own risk. Mostly it's a group of friends getting together for skating and hanging out. In years past there have been skaters from all over; Seattle, Portland, Spokane and Post Falls as well as Salt Lake City, California, Tucson, Vancouver BC, Virginia among other places. Family and friends who are not skaters (yet, hee hee) are welcome to enjoy biking or running on the trail or playing in the water park at the Silver Mountain Resort.
The majority of the skaters stay at the Silver Mountain Resort in Kellogg. We have a group discount code that can be applied for June 28-July 8. You can make your own reservations, but I will help coordinate our group and coordinate with another group so those who wish to share lodging can. Other accommodations include the GuestHouse Inn and Suites (formerly Baymont Inn and Suites), but for the times of this trip, they are not available. Local camping sites run about $30/night.
If you are interested in going and are ready to register for lodging, please R.S.V.P. so I can give you the discount code. I will help coordinate lodging/carpools with another group doing the same. If you're interested in different dates (within the timeframe above), let me know that as well so I can let the other group organizer know. You may be able to coordinate your trip with them, AND you still may be in the same timeframe as our group.
