Kelly Canyon Ski Resort

Located in the Targhee National Forest near the South Fork of the Snake River, Kelly Canyon Ski Resort is in one of the most beautiful and historic river valleys of eastern Idaho.

Kelly Canyon offers a variety of terrain with runs down the front and back sides of the mountain, and all major runs are lit for night skiing. There's even a new 600-foot tubing park on the mountain. Just beyond the alpine lifts you'll find miles of groomed Nordic skiing and snowshoe trails.

Kelly Canyon Ski Resort offers certified ski and snowboard instruction for kids, teenagers and adults in both private and group settings. The resort also offers a ski and snowboard equipment rental shop, cafeteria, and banquet and private meeting/dining rooms.

Kelly Canyon Ski Resort is 26 miles from Idaho Falls, 9 miles north of Ririe off Highway 26. In season, the resort runs buses on Saturdays and holidays from the surrounding communities.
