The Panhandle Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club offers a variety of opportunities to get out on the snow on skis and snowshoes in North Idaho. All ages and levels of expertise (or non-expertise) are welcome to take advantage of the club’s free Nordic ski lessons (classic or skate). The lessons are for kids and adults who want to hone their skills.

The Panhandle Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club maintains the 4th of July Pass Ski Area trail system east of Coeur d’Alene along I-90 in conjunction with the Forest Service.
