Sit on an air filled innertube, slide down a snowy hill. Sounds easy and fun? It is at the Activity Barn just outside of McCall, a perfect thing to do and visit while on an Idaho vacation. The Activity Barn is locally owned and operated and strives to give "perfect guest satisfaction".
On a part of the River Ranch, but close to the tubing hill, is a cross-country ski area. This area has two loops that take the skiier or snowshoer along groomed trails to the north fork of the Payette River, through tree groves, and across meadows. Wildlife is often seen from the trail loops. The cross country parking area is located near the main tubing hill parking lot. A donation box is locate at the parking lot. Dogs are permitted on the trails but owners are asked to clean up after their dogs so the area can be enjoyed by everyone. Prices are $5/use and season tickets are available for $20.
The activity is fun, relatively inexpensive and close to other activities in McCall. This is a great add on to your Idaho vacation.
