Boise

Boise

I was hoping for a transfer to Denver but, now there is a better chance for Boise. I need some good lake info. I only see one good sized lake to the East and want to know if they drop the level in the winter, and if it is accessible all year or not. Are there some other good spots to check out, Snake River???

Any info would really be appreciated. I need to know which side of town to look for a home, the closer to water the better.

Umm....... me thinks you will need a ice cutter on the front of your boat if you want to be on there during the winter in the MC

Ice... what's that?

I suppose I've been spoiled skiing all year down here.

Snake River is your only hope that far south, Ryan. It's pretty chilly for a California boy too. Better get yourself a wetsuit & a drysuit. Probably better off to either go further north to Coeur d'Alene or south to Denver.

Hey I am from Colorado, there's enough Californians out there too

j/k

Lived just North of Denver for 17 years, you will be hard pressed to ski (water) year round out there. Occasionally but at best, I did Jetski once on Feb 1st, its lots of fun shooting over ice flows!!

Well, if you own a house in California, you'll probably make a killing in Boise.

I would visit my friend in boise when I was a kid and did plenty of skiing there.Lake arrowhead is about 20 min. out of Boise nice little res. I think you will have to drive an hour or two for the other lakes. Forget about winter,take up snow skiing.Bogus basin 20 min.out of town!

I've got my 2/3mm wetsuit and use it a lot since I ski in Pacific water (never warms up much). I'm already pricing out dry suits. I don't think I could handle only skiing for 4-5 months out of the year. If I could spread it to 8-9 that would be much better. Bogus Basin has got the best value for a season pass, sign me up! I need something to do the other 4 months.

Unfortunately I don't own a home here in CA. That's why I want out. I have been priced out of the market (the parts where I'd like to live anyway). I may have ticked someone off at work, I begged for Denver or Boise and they gave me Irvine. Same pay for each city...go figure.

Our 771 sq ft house will rent for $1900/mo. = sweet house anywhere else. Where I don't have to do contortionist acts to get my boat in the garage. I dream of getting the boat in and out by myself.
