Considered by many as the best skiing in Idaho and the best family-friendly resort in the Pacific Northwest, Schweitzer Mountain Resort is independently owned and proud of it. Schweitzer ranks as one of the nation’s top winter destinations with 2900 acres of amazing terrain thanks to its two massive bowls and renowned tree skiing.
Located in the Selkirk Mountains of the northern Idaho panhandle, and only 80 miles from Spokane, WA, Schweitzer overlooks the town of Sandpoint, ID and offers breathtaking views of three states, Canada and the impressive Lake Pend Oreille. The resort also offers 32 kilometers of Nordic trails for cross-country, snowshoeing and snow biking during the winter season. Other activities for non-skiers like an on-site spa, dining, and shopping are all located in the intimate village.
In summer, the resort offers a variety of activities for families including hiking, mountain biking, a side-by-side zip line, climbing wall, trampoline jumper, and scenic chairlift rides. Schweitzer offers year-round accommodation on the mountain with lodging options from classic hotel style rooms to full ski-in/ski-out condominiums in winter.
Schweitzer first opened in 1963 and has remained independently owned, operating on 100% private land.
Unique, unspoiled, and uncrowded, Schweitzer is home to everyone who makes the journey.
Schweitzer is open for the winter season daily from early December to early April, conditions permitting, from 9:00am to 3:30pm. Summer Season runs from late June to Labor Day from 11:00am to 5:00pm, daily
