Located 80 miles from Spokane, Washington, in the rugged Selkirk Mountains of Idaho’s pandhandle, Schweitzer offers a mix of high angle groomers, gladed tree runs, and wide-open bowl skiing and riding. Schweitzer is one of the Pacific Northwest’s favorite mountains, thanks to its incredible terrain, breathtaking views, family friendly activities, and proximity to Sandpoint, ID.
