Bruce Willis owns this tiny gem of a ski area 102 miles east of Boise in Fairfield, Idaho. Closed Monday through Wednesday, storms load the slopes during the week, making Thursdays the ideal time to ski it’s 1,400 vertical in near seclusion. Playful rolling terrain litters the mountain, especially off the ridge between Pioneer Peak and Mill Point. A brand new 4,500 sq. ft. lodge, built after the old lodge burned down last season, may make Soldier feel a little less rustic but $36 adult lift tickets will bring you back to days gone by. An $11 single-ride lift ticket drops you right amongst killer Southern Idaho backcountry and the nine- and ten-thousand-foot mountains of the Soldier Range. The top of any one of these peaks offers a breathtaking view of the camas prairie 5,000 feet below. Looking for your own private Idaho? Soldier Mountain may just be the place.
