Affordable apartments in the heart of Ponderay

Welcome to Schweitzer's brand new employee housing complex, Schralpenhaus.

How do you say it? "Sh" - "Ralp" - "N" - "House"

But what does it mean? Schralp is essentially means to shred or rip. It can be done on your bike, skateboard, skis or snowboard. We do things a little differently here at Schweitzer, and Schralpenhaus is no different. We wanted to create a place that celebrates our community of shredders and rippers and brings the stoke from the mountain to town.
