Beautiful!

Magnificent view and a good opportunity to see wildlife (guess you need to be as lucky as I was). Can't wait to go back there during the winter.

What a let down this was. I'm having a hard time trusting trip advisor reviews when people say things that are totally not what is actually true. We got here and the lifts were not working. And the zip line was a total let down- it's really only for little kids. It was a good thing the lifts weren't working... More

Schweitzer owns the Bottle Bay Restaurant - Taps. We had two dinner at Taps during our stay. The meals were 100% different due to the wait staff. The dinner #1 was great we had a mature person as a waitress. Dinner #2 meal was fine the service was so poor I don't know where to start. Let me say there... More

Beautiful location, lots to do, even in the summer. A great family place--everything you need is right there. It is also a good place for nature lovers and hikers.

Lots to do in the summer months, hike, bike, ride the chairlift. The mountain biking has come along way the last couple of years.

we were one week early... but it looks like fun for the summer season. Construction going on for winter season. But it is a good spot.

I have been skiing Schweitzer since I was 14 & i am now 55. We have had to suck up a very bad year, as you all know. I have supported the Mountain all of my adult life. I retired from the Army in 2011 & moved back to Sandpoint, as this is where I grew up. I am hoping... More

I am writing as the leader of a 28 person group of skiers who spent the last week of February at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, just a short distance from Sandpoint, ID. I’ll begin by saying the US west coast ski areas were experiencing one of the worst ski seasons in history due to minimal snow cover; Schweitzer did their very... More

It's been a brutal winter in the west and Schweitzer has been no exception. Mountain has done it's best to keep the lights on and lifts turning. Skiing was good for the family, but the warm temps and freezing temps at night have made for some icy conditions this month. The village is quaint and has a couple restaurants that... More
