Skiers and snowboarders throughout Idaho have much to celebrate this holiday season, with all 19 Gem State ski areas now open.

Lookout Pass just opened its new Eagle Peak expansion that nearly doubles its terrain and boosts its vertical to 1,650 ft.

Bogus Basin celebrated its 80th birthday on Dec. 20. Skiers and snowboarders who visited Tamarack dressed as Santa, Mrs. Claus or an elf on Christmas Day could ski or snowboard for free while enjoying the VIP zone at mid-mountain, where a live DJ helped celebrate a night well done delivering gifts to all the Santas on the mountain.

Sun Valley Resort in Central Idaho has been open since Thanksgiving.

Most Idaho ski areas are open daily for the holidays through Jan. 2.
