Win a Winter Getaway & More From Visit Idaho!

People think it rains all the time in Seattle, but the true test of willpower comes from withstanding all the grey. Even when it's not raining, it's grey, and when the sun makes an appearance it's for about three hours max. I like to say that the key to living here is to plan a sunny getaway about this time of year. You don't have to go far to find some sun, and this year, Visit Idaho is giving you a chance to win a vacation to the Gem State.

Why Idaho, you ask? Well, aside from having over 200 sunny days a year, right now there's a whole lotta skiing and other winter fun going on. Over 18,000 acres and 28,000 feet of skiable terrain, 817 named ski runs, 48 Nordic skiing & snowshoeing areas and more await you!
