Took the kids up here on a Saturday to work with them on learning how to ski. They did well and the attendant on the lift was great. Dined inside the main area and the quantity of food we received with our order was definitely adequate. Good atmosphere with helpful mountain staff.

A great ski resort and a great atmosphere! Taps is great after a long ski day! Holiday weekends are great, but lines are long!

The drive up the hill to the resort is gorgeous. The little village is perfect for skiers. We just went to visit and took some amazing photos on the way up and down.

As long as the Fall weather isn't bad, it’s a beautiful and peaceful spot for getting away: about 9 miles up the hill from Highway 95 and another 3 miles to downtown Sandpoint. The Schweitzer resorts are very new and nice. So quiet however, they roll up the sidewalks at 8:30pm. But a morning walk through golden Tamaracks and evergreens... More

No matter what time of year you are in Sandpoint, it is worth a drive up Schweitzer for the view. Especially at sunset - it is so amazing looking down over the lake and Montana Mountains.

This is a ski resort in the wintertime that looks awesome, but we hiked up one of the trails on the mountain and saw a wide variety of trees and plants with some fall colors starting to kick in. The elevation change made the hike challenging but the views of Lake Pend Oreille on the ascent and descent made it... More

We went to visit to see what it would be like for the Winter. It is very pretty and small. The runs all looked moderate. They operate a chair in the Summer months for viewing.

What an amazing setting for this smaller ski resort in northern Idaho! Some great skiing in the winter and also great mountain biking in the summer! It has a large resort feel with the condos and village right at the base, but the employees make you feel at home. Just a great family environment any time of the year. Sandpoint... More

It was very loud and cold, but that's to be expected in the situation. Enjoyed it otherwise, would be amazing views from the top if not for the rain.
