Winter Parking Winter 2022/23
During the ski season, free parking is available in the Gateway Lot off of Village Lane, Fall Line Lot, and at the round-about near the Fire Station. The Lakeview Lot is complimentary during the week and $20 on weekends and holidays. Our parking lots can fill up fast during busy times so we recommend taking the free SPOT Bus shuttle from the Red Barn at the base of the mountain. They will drop you off right at the Village entrance. Once Gateway Lot is full, we will run a free shuttle to get you up to the Village from the Fall Line Lot.
Schweitzer Lodging Guests
Head to the Lodging Check-In lot, off of Great Escape Lane to check-in regardless if you are staying with us in Selkirk, White Pine, Humbird or mountain condos. Underground paid parking is available for $25 per night. If you need assistance, free free to call the Front Desk at 208.265.0257 and we will be happy to help you!
Red Barn Winter Shuttle - FREE
For the easiest access and convenience take advantage of the FREE winter 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.
