According to their article, Sandpoint’s “backcountry” is another thing that really sets this small town apart from others, as it receives an average of 300 inches of snow each year, and for those who enjoy winter sports... this is an outdoor-lover’s paradise.

Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling etc. If you can name a snow sport, it thrives in Sandpoint.

And not only are there thousands of acres and hundreds of trails to for these winter sport enthusiasts to explore, but there’s also a lot of amazing indoor things to do, too. So, it’s also a perfect small town for people who would rather stay inside and eat and relax — lots of great restaurants and places for relaxing retreats.
