We rode the ski lift to the top of the mountain and hiked through some of the trails. We stopped along the way and enjoyed some wild huckleberries that were growing everywhere. Beautiful scenery!

Our first visit to Schweitzer Mountain Resort in the summer. We were amazed to find 90% of the restaurants and shops open daily. Plus, the mountain biking and hiking are amazing. You can head out on your own or take the quad chairlift to the top and work your way back down. Recommendation: Lower the cost of the lift ticket.... More

Some nice shops. The sky lift is $15. During the summer you can take bikes up/down or hike the trails. Some nice shops and restaurants. Activities for the kids. Horseback rides, biking, hiking and a variety of other activities. Made for a nice afternoon - although afternoon got very hot in the sun.

It was a beautiful drive up the mountain. Once we arrived and parked we explored the tiny little village at the base of the ski area. There were a couple of restaurants open, a big pile of snow in one section and stunning views. Everyone was very nice and we spent a long time just talking to the workers at... More

Although Schweitzer Mountain was closed during our visit, it was a gorgeous drive with view of the lake at Sandpoint and snow covered mountain. The road was perfectly maintained even though there was lots of snow remainin g on the mountain sides.

Frequent storms leave this hill with exceptional coverage, and if you time it right, you are in for a killer powder day. Lots of friendly locals, reasonable lift tickets all add up to a great holiday.

I have skied 26 resorts in the US and Canada. None of them has more extensive and varied terrain than Schweitzer Mountain Resort. Consistent and dependable snowfall keeps Schweitzer open when many others ski areas are closed for lack of snow. Schweitzer has an excellent lift system, a great terrain park, and fabulous views of Lake Pend Orielle and the... More

Liked the snow when it was good. Seemed to snow and turn to rain and back to snow throughout every day. Mountain was in the clouds most of the time with poor visibility and very windy on our visit. I would say that this turned out to just be our timing as others in our group had been there before... More
