The Truth About Boise Weather

How much snow does Boise actually get? Many moving to the area from out of state are surprised just how mild the four seasons actually are in Southern Idaho.

Boise and the surrounding Treasure Valley which includes Nampa, Meridian, Kuna and Caldwell do have four distinct seasons, but records are set more in the real estate prices than in seasonal temperatures in this part of the US. Winters are surprisingly mild in the Valley, with very few snow days. The mountains and hills that surround Boise and the Treasure Valley do get their fair share of snow and cold temperatures, making it a great destination for those seeking outdoor adventures.

Bogus Basin Mountain Resort is just 30+minutes from Boise and has fantastic skiing, boarding and sledding for all levels. The Springs in Idaho City is a treasured natural hot springs/spa/resort about 40 minutes East of Boise. Venture a bit further North by about 2+hours and you find yourself in the beautiful town of McCall, Idaho where you can enjoy the winter festivities and ice sculptures during their annual winter carnival. On your way you can head to Gold Fork Hot Springs for a more rustic, but beautiful hot springs experience for the entire family.

Summer brings warmer temperatures and lots of sunshine and loads of outdoor sports and activities. The Boise River that flows through the city is great for fishing, floating, or just observing from the 25mile Boise Greenbelt that stretches along the Boise River. Temperatures are warm, but only 2-3 weeks will we see 100 degree days, mostly temps stay in the 80s and 90s during Summer.

Spring and Fall are temperate and beautiful and bring adventure and beauty to all nature lovers.

With four distinct, but mild seasons and sunshine almost all year round it's no wonder so many from out of state are moving to the Boise area.
