Pomerelle Ski Resort is one of my favorite places to ski in Idhao. It’s located in southern Idaho, just south of Burley, Idaho. It is located below Mount Harrison in the Albion Mountains in the Minidoka Ranger District of the Sawtooth National Forest. It’s small, but not too small. They offer skiing during the day and they have night skiing on part of the mountain.

Pomerelle Ski Resort
Although, Pomerelle is a small ski resort I promise you will be skiing all day. We had so much fun we extended our day and night skied for several hours. During the day both lifts run, but at night they only run one lift. I highly recommend only taking a car up here with AWD or 4WD. I had to use 4WD extensively coming down the mountain.
Full-Day: Adult $48, Child $35 (Children 6 and younger are free with a paying adult.)
Half Day: Adult $40, Child $30
Magic Carpet only $17
Pomerelle has an odd season pass pricing system. The more people in the family get a season pass the cheaper the pass. The first pass is $450, the second $410, the third $370, and the fourth $330. Any family members past that are $330. Children ages 7 – 12 are only $295.
The ski and snowboarding lessons here are excellent. They have private lessons and group lessons. Classes Depart at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm. They are for 7 years of age and older. All abilities, skier or boarder. Group lessons start at $40 and private lessons start at $65.

Where to Eat Near Pomerelle
I recommend that you plan to eat lunch and dinner at the lodge. There are other places once you get down the mountain but depending on when you visit they may not be open. The day we were in the area we couldn’t find an open restaurant.
During the day there’s an outside grill serving hamburgers and hotdogs. We had the hamburgers with the pepper toppings and they were delicious and filling. The outdoor grill does have drinks and cocktails as well.
Inside the lodge is another restaurant with lots more options and cheaper than the outdoor grill. The chili cheese fries and hot chocolate make a good afternoon snack. The West Texas girl inside me was thrilled to see steak fingers on the menu! You can see the menu pictured above.

Where to Stay Near Pomerelle
Finding somewhere close to Pomerelle can be somewhat difficult since it’s a sparsley populated area.
This is a small rustic-looking hotel. It is pictured above. It’s located just south of Pomerelle in Alma. When we stayed here there were no restaurants open and we hadn’t planned in advance for this. So, if you stay here plan accordingly. If you get in late it can be a little confusing which room is yours or where you are supposed to check-in. There’s nowhere to check-in. Look for the post-it note on the door with your name on it. We stayed in the Buffalo Bill room. It’s two stories with a kitchenette, master bedroom with a king bed and full bath. Upstairs is a bedroom with 2 full beds, another bathroom and rear access with balcony. (Pictured above.)
