Summer or winter, Schweitzer Mountain Resort offers a mountain-load of alpine activities for visitors. Ranked nationally in the top 32 resorts by both Ski and Snow Country magazines, Schweitzer is the largest ski and snowboard mountain in Idaho, and second only to Sun Valley in number of skier visits.
Blessed with an average 300 inches of powder in winter, its 2,900 skiable acres are acclaimed for the varied terrain, with 92 named runs offering everything from adrenaline-inducing double black diamond chutes to terrific tree skiing to family-friendly groomers – all served up with gorgeous views over Lake Pend Oreille and Cabinet Mountains to the east and vistas of the rugged peaks of the Selkirk range stretching north into Canada. The mountain has a top elevation of 6,400 feet with 2,400 feet vertical, served by four high-speed (two quads, a triple and a six-pack) and three double chairlifts, plus the Idyle-Our T-bar, a beginner’s Magic Carpet® and a handle tow.
The resort village offers fine dining and a range of excellent lodging choices, including the luxurious Selkirk Lodge with its outdoor pool and spa.
Come summer, the resort offers a host of warm-weather activities, including hiking, mountain biking, huckleberry picking, disc golf, tennis, a climbing wall and bungee jump trampoline and a long zip line. Horseback rides and snowmobile and backcountry ski tours are also offered through Mountain Horse Adventures and Selkirk Powder Company.
