Skiing and Snowboarding in Sandpoint, Idaho

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.
