Nestled in a basin at the base of the foothills of the Selkirk Mountains overlooking Lake Pend Oreille, Schweitzer Mountain offers 2900 acres of lift accessible in-bounds terrain. Averaging an annual snowfall of 300 inches, Schweitzer’s 92 designated trails include two open bowls - Schweitzer Bowl and Outback Bowl. 10% of the terrain is beginner, 40% intermediate, 35% advanced and 15% is expert. Accommodating every level of skier and rider, Schweitzer also has an open gate policy for access to out-of-bounds terrain that spans over 200 additional miles of the Selkirk Mountains.    


Schweitzer is quickly developing  somewhat of a cult following. It's small, peaceful, there are no crowds, it is delightfully unpretentious, and the resort has a nice local feel to it.  

Ski Magazine has voted Schweitzer as “the best kept secret in North America”, but this may be a slight exaggeration. Schweitzer is uncrowded and a hidden gem relative to larger ski resorts such as Aspen or Vail, but it’s definitely not deserted and it doesn’t feel like you’re skiing on your own private mountain (unless you go cat skiing with off piste). Despite Schweitzer already being well and truly discovered, the locals think it’s a well kept secret, so we’ll let them keep thinking that!


Lodging:
