Schweitzer Mountain Resort is nestled at the base of the Selkirk Mountains in the Idaho Panhandle. Overlooking the town of Sandpoint and Lake Pend Oreille, Schweitzer has long been famous for its massive bowls and breathtaking views. Schweitzer sits on 7,000 acres, with 2,900 acres of skiable terrain, the largest in Idaho and Washington.

Stand at the top and stare at three mountain ranges, Canada and three states. Enjoy a variety of terrain from smooth corduroy groomers to wide open bowls and gladed runs. Then return to the top at hair flying speed thanks in part to Stella. Stella, as you will soon discover, is Idaho's only six-person high-speed lift.
