Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Spring Fling was a great deal, absolutely NO lines, ski right onto the lift for four powder days in a row.

“Skiing at Schweitzer Mountain”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

My girlfriend and I went for a ski vacation to Schweitzer and we were both impressed in every way! The Selkirk lodge was beautiful and extremely convenient for everything. They had it all! Skiing was fantastic and the outback area was great fun for skiing, meeting locals, other travelers and eating the food. Not to mention the great tree skiing!

“Great place to ski!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

We spend our weekends here in the winter and love it. You can ski all weekend and never ski the same run twice if you don't want to. They have a smaller village area around the main lodge with different restaurants and bars. The tubing hill is a lot of fun. Just can't say enough about it.

“Nice mountain, challenging weather”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Pluses: almost no lines outside holiday weekends; excellent advanced tree skiing; short hike on a backside gets you into untouched snow, and plenty of it. Spiced hot wine just like in the Alps. Low elevation so you're not out of breath after 3 turns.
Minuses: more expensive lift ticket than one would expect from a resort of this size; miserable weather with 50-yard visibility a norm, and high winds. Low elevation and hence a good chance of rain. Terrible and expensive food on the mountain (a $9 potato - in Idaho!?), wtih no healthy choices to speak of.
