The Sawtooth Valley becomes a winter wonderland as the valleys sparkle in a carpet of white powder and incredibly blue skies. Stanley and the Sawtooth Valley offer outstanding recreational opportunities for the winter enthusiast. Activities include snowmobiling, cross country skiing, hut skiing, snowshoeing and ski mountaineering, wildlife viewing, sightseeing, and photography. The Stanley Basin trail system is surrounded by three beautiful mountain ranges: the White Clouds on the East, the Salmon River Range on the North and the majestic jagged Sawtooths (Northern Rockies) on the West and South. These mountain ranges contain over 40 peaks of 10,000 feet and higher with breathtaking views in every direction. This creates the perfect backdrop for winter fun. With over 220 inches of snow annually, 185 miles of groomed trails and the availability of unlimited off-trail riding, Stanley is an uncrowded playground paradise for snowmobilers. Pristine groomed trails are there for those who prefer them and thousands of untouched acres are available for those “boondockers” who prefer the challenge of endless miles of off-road terrain.
