Located just outside the beautiful city of Sandpoint in the panhandle of Idaho, this place is a hidden gem. The closest airport is Spokane, Washington. Quick car ride (1.5 hours) to the city. I chose this place because of the location (never been to Idaho...More

This resort has a small time feel with big time features. We skied during the week and there were zero lines for the lift. The trees were well spaced in many places. I would recommend this as an advanced skier's mountain. The 'green' runs are...More

Sweet mountain, especially if there is fresh snow. Lots of terrain to ski with variable ability limits. Friendly people and staff. We went on busy weekend and could still find some peace and quite out there. I want to go back.

Great area with something for every level. Small village at the base and a good amount of lodging right at the mountain. Nice lodges with decent food. Lines aren't too bad, even on a holiday weekend. Good snow, can be foggy.

So much more terrain than expected, the backside on a pow day is to die for! Try and plan your trip around snow because I have heard that icy days are common. With fresh snow the place is like heaven.

Great snow coverage. All employees were friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back! Fog and wind at the top made for low visibility. Relatively no lift lines and short rides.

We have been going to Schweitzer for years and it never fails to disappoint. Early season conditions in many ways this holiday season but some recent snow made for excellent riding. Lots of packed and loose powder and some nice soft moguls to shred! I...More
