The sno-cone is a staple if Idaho summers, and a new chain is getting ready to give the treat a twist with locations around the Treasure Valley.

Trailhead Ice will open four locations in three Treasure Valley cities, with the first, at Glenwood St. at Chinden Blvd. next to Starbucks, set to cool off customers on May 1st.

Three more huts are set to open later next month:

  • 1522 W. State St, next to the 76 gas station
  • Eagle Sports Complex in Eagle
  • 9105 W. Overland Rd. near Maple Grove St.

Flavors like Idaho huckleberry, cherry, mango, pina colada, blueberry, root beer and more will be served up.

Marketing Director Deidre Zobel says the Trailhead concept is a bit different than traditional sno cones:

“Italian ice is a sweetened frozen dessert containing only water, mostly natural flavors with some artificial flavors, & sugar,” she said. “Similar to a snow cone or sorbet but different as it is dairy & egg free, and the ingredients are frozen & mixed together rather than pouring flavor on shaved ice.”

Trailhead is a locally-owned chain.
