Visitor Reviews of Schweitzer Mountain

Callie H from United States writes:

Excellent resort; a hidden gem in North Idaho. There is rarely ever a wait line, unless it's xmas/new years of course, and the lifty department is possibly the best in the nation. The staff could not be more friendly! Wide variety of terrain, tree skiing, off-piste and groomers. The town of Sandpoint is also an authentic and fun place to go out!
