Always wanted to explore the trails around Schweitzer? Here's a great chance to see the quiet side of the mountain by bike - electric bike that is! Schweitzer will be offering 2-hour hosted E-Bike tours departing from the village daily at 1pm, every day of the summer season. Explore a 10-12 mile cross-country mountain bike loop while learning all about the flora and fauna of the region. No E-Bike experience necessary! Our hosts will explain how to use the Rad Power E-Bikes so that you can get the most out of the experience!
Weekday rides require riders sign up 24 hours in advance. Book your tour below or contact the Activity Center for more details at 208.255.3081. (If you are not interested in a tour option, Schweitzer does offer e-bike rentals for full and half days. Get more details here!)
