Schweitzer Mountain is a prime vacation spot all year long. In winter you can downhill or cross country ski, snowshoe or snowmobile.

In summer you can hike, horseback ride, bike, take a trail ride or hitch the quad to the top of the mountain to get the best pickins' of the huckleberry season. And the city of Sandpoint is only a short, 9-mile drive down the mountain. Sandpoint in any season is well worth a visit, boasting a four-season climate and fun opportunities for all ages.

    "I like smaller ski areas without all the "hype". The only problem we encountered was rain. We planned to ski three days, however, after the first day, the following two days were extremely wet."
