This winter we reached out to our loyal fans and asked everyone to submit their favorite winter memories. As a result, people from across the U.S. shared some of their most treasured Idaho moments with us.

Thank you to everyone who slowed down this winter and pressed play.

Here are the top 20 #ForTheWinter photos from our record-breaking winter!

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”
