We liked the variety of runs and great grooming. It is a huge place but still managed to be friendly and give the mom and pop feel. Unlike some large ski areas. We would definitely ski there again.

I love Schweitzer Mountain! There is something to do in every season. I rated the value so low because the lift tickets and innertube run are very spendy. Night skiing is the best deal, but you don't get all the lifts. The resort just celebrated 50 years and had a huge firework show. There are plenty of lodging choices and numerous restaurants, I can not review the restaurants because every time we try and eat there, they are very over crowded. This is a very popular resort and gets very busy. All in all I say it's worth your time!

In context of mountain views, this could be considered typical. Beautiful, but some folks get blurry-eyed when presented with lots of mountain scenery. (For such folks - taking doses in moderation can help..)

You could say we skiied above the clouds all day. The sun was shinning! We like everything but getting served lunch on the hill was slow! Loved the all you can eat salad bar. Would go again.

The skiing was great, the resort often has snow when other resorts do not. They have great systems in place to make life easy such as gear check at the bottom of the lifts. They have a few interesting shops including a delicatesan and the people make the place have a really warm village feel to it. With a large amount of ski-able terrain and 92 runs there's plenty to go and explore. We took our kids who had never seen snow before and the ski coaches were so good that our son was skiing black runs after 9 days ! Great people, great fun and a bit of a local secret ! :-)
