Sandpoint, a small community in North Idaho, has much to offer. Nestled on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille, beauty and activities abound including art exhibits, weekend festivals and great music. The nearest major airport is just 75 miles away in Spokane, Washington. Nearby Schweitzer Mountain Resort boasts over 300 inches of snow per year and 2,500 skiable acres. The area offers a variety of lodging options from lakefront to slopeside.
In the winter months, consider cross country skiing on over 30 km's of groomed and tracked scenic trails. An ever more popular pasttime is snowshoeing. There's special trails set aside and shoes can be rented just for the occasion. Try snowmobiling on the other side of the mountain on your own or with a guided tour. And for the hearty snowboarders there's a terrain park and miles and miles of trails.
Summer season ushers in a whole new batch of fun including boating, water skiing, hiking, fishing, golf and mountain biking on and around Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho's largest lake with lll miles of shoreline and depths maximizing at 1,172 feet. Have a bucket handy to pick huckleberries as you explore the national forests or explore the backcountry on horseback.
Or find any quiet place and soak in the magnificent scenery you'll find all around you.
Fun for all seasons, fun for all ages and just plain fun. You can leave the hustle and bustle and find peace and tranquility in the mountain getaway we call Sandpoint.
In 2004, Sandpoint had the distinction of landing on the front page of the USA Today Life section for idyllic destinations and diversions. And in the September issue of National Geographic Adventure magazine, Sandpoint is listed as one of 10 Great Adventure Towns.
