February 22nd, Sting’s “Idaho groomer madness” road trip’s name changed to “POW’daho 2013″ (very clever Sting), because they hit the sweet and very quiet Pomerelle ski area with excellent boot top powder. Not having been there myself, I can only live it through Sting’s stories, the words from the good folks at Peak Travels (below), and the super sweet short vid they kicked out last night that features our very own Sting @ 30 seconds.
Peak Travels writes, If you are looking for “YOUR” private resort, come make some turns at Pomerelle. Nestled in the Sawtooth National Forest, the Base Lodge (located at 8,000 feet), is just a 12 mile drive from the community of Albion, Idaho. Catering specifically to families enjoying and learning to ski or board, this southern Idaho resort features 24 expertly groomed slopes, 2 terrain parks, and a vertical drop of 1,000 feet serviced by 1 triple chair, 1 double chair and the 450’ Magic Carpet beginners lift. With an annual snowfall of 500”, it is usually one of the first Idaho ski resorts to open. When the snow melts, Pomerelle’s summer operation begins offering chairlift rides, mountain biking, hiking, picnics and horseshoes. Pomerelle is located within the Sawtooth National Forest and is under permit from the Forest Service, USDA.
