Sidecountry Skiing & Riding

Schweitzer’s 2900 acres of inbounds terrain is the biggest in Idaho and Washington.  What’s even more impressive is the access to limitless sidecountry and backcountry terrain.  The Selkirk Mountains span the northern portion of the Idaho Panhandle, eastern Washington, and southeastern British Columbia for over 200 miles.  Schweitzer maintains an open gate policy for access to out-of-bounds terrain and the rest of the Selkirk Mountains.  The variety of the out-of-bounds terrain is amazing.  Whether enthusiasts are looking to step into the sidecountry and ride back in bounds at the bottom of their run or spend the whole day on a backcountry adventure, the surrounding mountains offer unlimited options for the backcountry enthusiast.  Schweitzer Mountain Resort, the gateway to the Selkirks.

Nordic Skiing

With over 32 kilometers and varied terrain of Nordic trails, Schweitzer offers enthusiasts not only a challenge but also a spectacular view to truly enjoy the beauty of their sport. Nordic skiing is a sport that does not require a lot of equipment but keeps skiers healthy and happy. At Schweitzer exploring is always encouraged and clinics are available to help one ride to the best of their ability, making the scenic trails that much more enjoyable to discover.

Best of the Mountain and the Lake

Schweitzer Mountain Resort is located in one of the most spectacular areas – Sandpoint, Idaho. Not only do you get to enjoy the snow and the festivities found on the mountain, but you also get to experience Sandpoint and one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in the country, Lake Pend Oreille.  Only part of the lake freezes during the winter due it its size, but ice skaters and fishermen take full advantage of the frozen bays.  Visitors and local’s alike venture into town to listen to live music and watch films at the historical Panida Theater, shop, find local art, dine and enjoy wine tastings – all within view of the lake.
