Outdoor Idaho

Winter Grit

Season 29 Episode 5 | 26m 49s

Idaho's outdoor enthusiasts can be a gritty bunch -- especially this time of year. Cowboys on horses pull skiers on a snow-packed track, reaching speeds up to 40 mph. Climbers scale 100-foot columns of ice along basalt cliffs. And powder hounds hitch a helicopter ride to a mountaintop in Palisades range. Together, these adventure-seekers demonstrate it takes true grit to brave Idaho's elements.
