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

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.
