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

The rooms are not a good value for the price. When we stayed there on our honeymoon (mind you it was the worst winter in years so the hotel was empty) they tried to stick us in a terrible room with no view to start. When my husband tried to call the front desk to complain the phone didn't even... 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

I have skied Schweitzer several times prior to kids and with kids. We really do love this mountain. The high speed lifts make for a great ski day. Our last trip up was for a ski race that my three children participated in. We decided not to stay on the mountain due to high costs for just two nights. Instead... More

Our first time to ski at Schweitzer and we really enjoyed our day. The weather was beautiful and the view from the mountain is astounding. Lots of the runs were closed due to lack of snow, but we all got in some good runs before the snow got too slushy for good skiing.

Skier's mtn. has everything, open bowls, trees, groomers without the extreme elevations of Co. Good size mountain with a family mountain feel. One drawback is there are only a few restaurants and shops on the mountain and Sandpoint is 10+ miles away

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!
