The landscape turns white as the mountains turn into icy playgrounds. There are plenty of sites in all regions for skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling. The top barley producer state is home to a multitude of craft brews with plenty of breweries to serve delicious pints and keep warm. Warm winter coats, caps, and gloves are in demand during the cold season, especially during Christmas and New Year's Eve. Expect December to be icy in Idaho.
