The first frost of winter comes to Sandpoint in late September, when light snow dusts the surrounding mountaintops above 5,000 feet. As a general rule, summer refuses to go away for a while, and the warm, pleasant days often continue into November. Following the autumn departure of the ospreys from the lake, bald eagles return in preparation for the winter season. When the snow begins falling earnestly in late November and early December, Sandpoint's winter sports season begins.

With the hustle and bustle of the summer's tourist season gone, Sandpoint's winter sports season consists primarily of three popular activities.

Whether you are ice skating on our communities ponds, or cross country skiing on trails along the mountain ridges, the key to enjoying the winter months is simply being outside. Just walking around on a sunny winter day is a high priority for many people who enjoy Sandpoint outdoor activities.
