Visitor Reviews of Schweitzer Mountain

7BSkiBunny from United States writes:

I really love this resort despite the continuing removal of all the charming flavor. Like taking out the perfect ski patio :( It still is always fun and challenging skiing (if you have the attitude for the vastly differing terrain and conditions), plus I love fun Sandpoint. And I love that it is mostly still undiscovered. My beefs? Yes, the once perfect bar deck is gone, to be replaced with a "lame patio." The new Sky Lodge is cool-ish, just ok food but I would have put the money into the lower lodge and Outback and replaced the deck! :) Please!! And taking the beer shack at the top was wrong too. Hope they put out spring skiing outdoor chairs up there anyway. And then there isn't really any local appreciation or loyal season pass holder incentives. And the high prices. Still my fave in the region!
