Inexpensive, close, plenty of Intermediate skiing, and family friendly
Lots of young kids on some slopes. No really advanced runs.
Kelly Canyon is a great place to learn how to ski or snowboard. As a matter of fact, this is where I learned how to ski. But throughout the years I have kept coming back to this little resort. The snow is fairly reliable. The atmosphere is friendly. It is close to Idaho Falls, Rigby, and Rexburg. Plenty of students from the university in Rexburg come for a day of fun. Above all, it has night skiing, with many of its runs well lighted. For that, the "nightlife" of night skiing is very good. It is one of my favorite areas to ski.
