Idaho's 12ers

Some seek thrills, some seek records, some push themselves to the edge of physical and mental endurance. But for most Idaho climbers, simply standing on the top of Idaho’s tallest mountains is reward enough.

Idaho’s Bitterroot Mountains define our state’s squiggly eastern border. Rugged, remote and hard to get to, the Bitterroot Mountains offer a challenge and reward. Outdoor Idaho’s “In the Shadow of the Bitterroots” will uncover the history, culture, recreation and science of the land. From sacred Nez Perce trails to the tallest peaks, this show will inspire curiosity about a unique mountain range.

News & Notes

Outdoor Idaho entered its 40th season on October 13th with a program called “Looking Back and Moving Forward.” This hour-long program commemorates what has made Outdoor Idaho beloved by people of all ages and occupations.

“Outdoor Idaho provides us with a glimpse into the lives of others – farmers, outfitters, hunters, hikers, birders. It’s an education in our land, but also in our people,” said producer Lauren Melink. "In this program we not only recognize Outdoor Idaho but also the state and the landscapes that make our work possible.”

Other programs on the docket include "In the Shadow of the Bitterroots," which aired in December, and “This is Rodeo,” airing in March. Both programs are an hour in length.
