Killer Skiing Without the Crowds

Only 11 miles from the town of Sandpoint, Idaho is Schweitzer Mountain and it’s 2,900 acres of knee-deep powder. This charming little village is home to musicians, artists, and professional snowboarders. Everyone comes together at MickDuff’s Brewing Co. for a Tipsy Toehead Blonde Ale and their famous Garlic Gorgonzola Cheese Fries. Another favorite is Pend d’Oreille Winery and Bistro Rouge Café, offering tastings, wine by the glass, light tapas and live music on Friday nights.

Crowds of skiers and snowboarders are almost non-existent, especially on the “Idyle Our T-bar” lift, which accesses endless off-trail tree terrain and the resort’s longest run, the 2.1-mile intermediate Little Blue Ridge. At times you will wonder if you are the only one on the mountain!

For an intimate experience of skiing, dining, and drinking, Sandpoint is the place to be! Give our travel specialists a call and we’ll plan your getaway today!
