Great hill and beautiful scenery. Challenging hill with varied level's of difficulty. I highly recommend you visit Sandpoint and if you need to rent ski's or bikes go see Svein and Sandpoint bike and ski. He is awesome!

No lines, no people, challenging terrain, night skiing, great glades and plenty of snow, Conditions can get dicey at times depending on what blows in (lack of visibility at the summit, slush & crust towards the bottom) but there is always fun to be had whether groomers or untouched areas regardless. The mountain lacks a lodge at the summit but... More

Spent 4 days here with a ski club in Mid January. Almost no lift lines even Saturday. Almost everyone is a local here--so you can ask anyone for advice. Staff truly appreciated us and tried to make sure we had a great time. Snow was good, has a lot of challenging off the beaten track runs. Only downside is that... More

Do not buy gift cards for anyone. You can't use pre loaded gift cards for any online offers. My wife put $200 on a gift card for Christmas. I tried to purchase the Ski-3 deal and was told it is online only and gift cards can't be used online. I have to use it on the mountain. Sunday solution tickets... More

Best variety of terrain in the region but also the most expensive. Season passes are way too expensive. 500 would be fair. Great conditions this year.

We took both our son's and their wives to the resort for Christmas break. We skied for two days in deep powder. We used the Alpine rental for skis. Very good service. All mountain services were outstanding. The Taps lounge is a great place.

This year has been great with all the early snow fall mid and late December. My boys and I went here for 3 days of Snowboarding and enjoyed everyday to the max? The snowboard rentals were very good quality; but, when I tried the ski rentals I thought they were a low value ( low quality) rental. Needless to say... More

I visited this place and is gorgeous, really worth it the long way to get there. When we got there it was falling a lot of snow and it was very cold if you want to visit the place to have to do it early, in the morning is better because they closed the shop and stores at 3pm.
