Take the Shuttle
Or Find A Spot to Park
** Due to Covid, there will be limited parking and shuttle services on the mountain this winter. Please see the October 19, 2020 statement on parking, transportation and shuttles from Schweitzer's CEO & President, Tom Chasse.**
For the easiest access and convenience take advantage of the FREE mountain shuttle service from SPOT. Head to the Red Barn Park & Ride area at the base of the mountain (intersection of North Boyer & Schweitzer Mountain Road) and hop on the free bus. This service is provided by a partnership with the Selkirks Pend Oreille Transit (SPOT) bus system and riders will be able to connect directly to/from Sandpoint at the Red Barn.
