About the Ski Resort

Kelly Canyon Ski Resort is located in the Targhee National Forest near the
South Fork of the Snake River and is one of the most beautiful and historic
river valleys of Eastern Idaho. This region is rich in many recreational
activities such as: swimming, hiking, fishing, hunting, boating, snowmobiling
and skiing. Kelly Canyon Ski Resort was established in 1957.

With 26 trails and 4 lifts covering 740 skiable acres and a 1,000-foot
vertical, Kelly Canyon offers a variety of terrain for all ability levels. We
have the only night skiing in the area.

You can enjoy the entire mountain -- with challenging trails on the back
side, wide runs and accessible terrain down the front.

Snowboarders are welcome everywhere on the mountain, and all major runs are
lit for night skiing.

A new 600-foot tubing park offers even more for families and groups.

Kelly Canyon is a great place for first-timers and beginners to learn.
Certified instructors teach to all ability levels in both private and group
lessons. There are classes just for kids, and snowboard instruction is
available. Lessons are offered during the Christmas holidays and weekends in

Services at the area include a rental shop, cafeteria, banquet and private

Kelly Canyon is only 26 miles from Idaho Falls, nine miles off U.S. Highway
26, north of Ririe. Buses are provided Saturdays and holidays from area
communities. With our central location, we are easy access from Idaho Falls,
Rexburg, Rigby and other outlying areas.
