While there isn’t any lasting snow on the ground in our beautiful ”City by the Lake” yet, our surrounding mountains have had a couple dustings of that crispy, white powder that we are so famous for. With the holiday season upon us, touring Lake Coeur d’Alene by helicopter or seaplane is the most magnificent way to observe our area decked out in its holiday best. With the luxurious lake homes lit up with thousands of lights and displays, they are clearly visible from the warm comfort of your aircraft. Beautiful mountain lakes are a vivid blue as you glide over them and spotting wildlife below is easier than ever against the white backdrop. The deer, elk and moose are herded together in the mountain meadows looking for food. The bald eagle population is growing daily at Wolf Lodge Bay, reaching it’s peak right at Christmas time. This is a perfect photographic opportunity from the air and our pilots love showing you our winter wonderland.
