Guess Who Made The List?
3. McCall, Idaho
Situated on the shores of gorgeous Payette Lake in the state of Idaho, McCall is a mountain town that does not receive nearly enough credit. With a population of 3,844 residents, this small mountain village is home to some of the best snow and gorgeous views of any mountainous area in the country. McCall is home to Brundage Mountain Resort, a classic ski area that has been in operation since 1961 and sees an average of 320 base area inches of powder per year. Also located nearby is Tamarack Mountain Resort, a newer ski area that offers more than enough powder for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Just a short 2-hour drive away from Idaho’s capitol, Boise, McCall flys under the radar considering its infectious western vibes. With gorgeous shops and restaurants sprawling across its main thoroughfare, Lake Street, there is plenty of activities to enjoy following a long day on the slopes. The annual winter carnival, pictured above, has been celebrated since 1923, heavily contributing to its history as an amazing mountain town. With a storied past that features a gold mining boom, McCall is a criminally underrated mountain town.
