Southern Idaho, including the Boise metropolitan area, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, and Twin Falls are in the Mountain Time Zone. (A legislative oddity (15 U.S.C. ch.6 § 264) theoretically places this region in the Central Time Zone, but this error is not widely known and is universally ignored.) Areas north of the Salmon River, including Coeur d'Alene, Moscow, Lewiston, and Sandpoint are in the Pacific Time Zone and revolve commercially and culturally around Spokane, Washington.
The Idaho Panhandle region observes Pacific Time north of the western-flowing Salmon River in the southern part of Idaho County. The rest of the state to the south observes Mountain Time, which begins at Riggins. The primary reason for the different timezones, even though cites and towns in North Idaho are at the same longitude as their southern Idaho neighbors is the regional sphere of influences. The panhandle is linked to Spokane, WA (Pacific Time), while southern Idaho is linked to Boise, ID (Mountain Time).
