How do you spend your downtime when you’re visiting Kellogg, Idaho on a ski trip? If you’re staying at Silver Mountain Resort, you do it by splashing, sliding, and perhaps even surfing at the attached indoor water park. The Silver Mountain water park is medium-sized compared to other indoor water parks around the country, but contains more big-time attractions than parks that are twice its size. The main draw here is the FlowRider surfing simulator, which offers an interesting compare-and-contrast to skiing on the slopes.
Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark is primarily intended for guests of the resort, who receive free admission with their rental. Day passes are not sold individually to the public. However, there is the option to purchase group admission for parties and other events without staying at the resort.
Silver Mountain Resort is made up of privately owned condominiums, many of which are made available for short-term rentals. You can find a variety of accommodations, including spacious quarters for groups or large families. Some of the condos allow pets, so you might even be able to bring Fido along.
