Great Mountain. Would be so much better if they would plan more attractiveness on the spot.world class skiing.. They have everything for any type of skier...Sandpoint is a great town that should suit anyone not specifically seeking out the glitz of major resorts.

Lots of powder and good groomers to keep everyone happy. Friendly lifties, though the ubiquitous rock-and-roll at every location is a bit tiring on the ears. Loved the BIng Crosby and other oldies they played in the lodge around Christmas time. Excellent ski school instructors.

Beautiful scenery, can take the lift to the top of the mountain and walk around. Can take the life back down or hike along the trails.

THE GOOD: Terrific Ski Mtn. Beautiful slopes; beautiful views; all blue runs are groomed daily including many of the black runs; during the weekdays, you will have almost the whole mtn to yourself, i.e., rarely more than a handful of other skiers on any given...More
