Idaho Outdoor Association


Welcome to the IOA! 
Our Mission and Objectives are: 

  • To promote and encourage stewardship of the wildlife, habitat, and recreational resources of the state of Idaho.  

  • To encourage good sportsmanship, ethics, and responsibility in outdoor activities. 

  • To conserve, protect, and help maintain both public and private property used for recreational purposes. 

  • To promote and encourage healthy outdoor activities. 

We believe that anyone who participates in outdoor recreation of any kind should be willing to help protect and improve the natural resources of the state of Idaho. 

General meetings are held at our hall at 7:00 P.M., the second Tuesday of each month, October through May. 

Our meetings are free, open to the public, and refreshments are encouraged.

Escape the inversion! Join us for an afternoon of cross country skiing or snowshoeing, your choice. 

We will meet at the IOA Hall at 11:45 am. We will leave at High Noon and then caravan to the Gold Fork Park N' Ski area. 

You will need to provide your own equipment, food and transportation. A Park N' Ski pass is required for each vehicle and can be purchased at: https://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/activities/xc-skiing/park-n-ski-in-idaho/ 

Each participant can travel as far as they want to. Some will continue on through the loop while others may choose to turn back to the parking area. 

The trails are rated as intermediate and are usually well-groomed. 

See you there!

  In the event you have purchased a ticket but cannot attend, you can use the ticket as a donation to the Idaho Outdoor Association. You could also choose to donate part of your ticket or ask for a refund. We will try to handle requests in a timely manner. Stay safe and well dear friends, so we can gather in the future.
