Ski Areas > US Rocky Mountains > Schweitzer, Idaho




  Oh, this is a good ski mountain, a really good one. If you're a serious skier Schweitzer Mountain is perfect. It's a great skiing experience. Says Steven Lewis.

This ski resort has a reasonable range of runs and a reasonable selection of different ski lifts. The seasonal snowfall is stronger than average at Schweitzer. No other ski mountain for 173 miles has a more sky-scraping height difference. There are 8 lifts here, and they are amusing to hitch a
    ride with. This ski mountain has an average share of hard slopes and an average fraction of beginner and intermediate runs. No matter if you're skiing or snowboarding, close by, you'll bump into scores of good sites. This is a full-scale
ski area boasting a medium drop from top to bottom compared to other US Rockies ski mountains. There are great comfy rooms here, but if you donít have reservations, you may well end up sleeping in your vehicle. The snow here turns very deep, 25 feet every winter, and that is an extremely delightful depth. Having 2,500 acres of skiing land you won't lack skiable terrain. The 2,400 feet of elevation difference is a fine drop. With a grand total of 59 trails to  
ski on; it's a splendid set. The Idaho summits during ski season are a good place for snowboarding or skiing. Skiing and snowboarding here in Idaho is loads of fun all winter season long. Please refer to the trailmap of Schweitzer on this page for information. Schweitzer is a great ski hill with loads of different trails; there's absolutely no way to get bored here.
