When it's winter in Idaho, we like to spend all of our free time thinking stuff up that we can do outside. A bunch of us geniuses decided that paintball was the right thing to do.

There are some do's and don'ts when it comes to playing paintball when it's cold outside. ANSgear has some great tips for this winter pastime. The cold temps can make the paint balls crack, but the killer is when your goggle fog up. That will definitely happen if you're outside for any length of time.

But, where in Idaho can you do this you ask? Good question. Here are some possibilities in no particular order:

Pyrrhic Paintball in Boise

True Paintball in Boise

Winter Paintball in Rexburg

I'm not sure if Breakpoint Paintball in Heyburn has any events during the winter, but can't hurt to check their page occasionally to find out.

Oh, and if you decide you want to inflict winter paintball pain on yourself, make sure you and your friends watch out for signs of hypothermia. Time flies when you're having a good time.
