Downhill skiing in Idaho has long been the premier winter sport, starting with the founding of Sun Valley, America's first resort designed specifically for skiing. Snow skiing in Sandpoint revolves about Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort atop 6,400-foot Schweitzer Mountain. With several hundred inches of snowfall each winter season, Schweitzer draws snow skiing enthusiasts to its slopes throughout the northwest.
Schweitzer's ski-in, ski-out village atop Schweitzer Mountain is a small community in its own right. The 82-room Selkirk Lodge provides slope side luxury accommodations to skiers, who can also enjoy excellent restaurants and retail shops, or check out The White Pine Lodge (50 condominium style units). Some 450 fully furnished mountain homes are nestled throughout the rugged alpine terrain, and their availability as four-season mountain vacation retreats has put Schweitzer in Sandpoint, Idaho high on the list of many real estate bargain hunters throughout the West. Several hundred thousand skiers enjoy Schweitzer's slopes each year.
Schweitzer Mountain Resort is a year-round, family friendly destination located in the Idaho Panhandle, 85 miles from Spokane, WA and 66 miles south of the Canadian border into British Columbia. The resort boasts 2900 acres of varied terrain for skiing and snowboarding as well as 32 kilometers of Nordic trails for cross-country, snowshoeing and snowbiking 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 zip line, climbing wall, Monkey 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.
A visit to Schweitzer is one the whole family will remember and want to repeat!
