Best time to visit Athol:

Spring (March to May):

  • Spring in Idaho varies by region. Lower-elevation areas experience milder weather, with daytime temperatures in the 50s and 60s Fahrenheit (10-21°C). Spring is a quieter time to visit, with fewer tourists. It's a good time for exploring cities like Boise and enjoying early wildflowers and outdoor activities.

Summer (June to August):

  • Summer is the peak tourist season in Idaho. The weather is warm and sunny, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 70s to 90s Fahrenheit (21-37°C) in most areas. This is the best time for outdoor adventures, including hiking, camping, white-water rafting, and fishing. Popular destinations like Sun Valley and Coeur d'Alene offer a wide range of activities. The mountainous areas, like the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, are particularly beautiful during this season.

Fall (September to November):

  • Fall in Idaho brings pleasant weather, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 60s to 70s Fahrenheit (15-26°C). The foliage in the mountainous regions turns vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, making it ideal for scenic drives, hiking, and leaf-peeping. Fall is also a great time for wildlife watching, especially in places like Yellowstone National Park, which extends into Idaho.

Winter (December to February):

  • Winter is perfect for snow enthusiasts. The mountain regions of Idaho, including Sun Valley and McCall, offer excellent skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling opportunities. Daytime temperatures can range from the 20s to 30s Fahrenheit (-6 to 4°C) in these areas. It's important to check weather conditions and road closures during the winter season.

Note on High Elevations:

  • Keep in mind that high-elevation areas, especially in the mountains, can have cooler temperatures and snowfall even into the late spring and early fall. Be prepared for changing weather conditions at higher elevations.
