With a dazzling view of Lake Pend Oreille, Schweitzer Mountain Resort lies high in the Selkirk Range of the Northwest Rocky Mountains, where abundant snowfall buries the slopes in more than 300 inches annually. With 2,900 skiable acres, Schweitzer is larger than Sun Valley, Alta, Crested Butte and Snowbird. Facilities include a day lodge, outdoor apparel and gift shops, a general store, restaurants, pubs, cafes, several full bars and a chapel. A ski school, day care, special children's programs and rental services are available. Skiing, cross-country ski trails, cat skiing, snowmobiling, zip line and tubing are also available. On-mountain lodging includes the European-style Selkirk Lodge, the luxurious White Pine Lodge and numerous condo units - affordable studios to superior quality six-bedroom jacuzzi units.
