Nestled in a basin at the base of the foothills of the Selkirk Mountains overlooking Lake Pend Oreille, Schweitzer Mountain offers 2900 acres of lift accessible in-bounds terrain. Averaging an annual snowfall of 300 inches, Schweitzer’s 92 designated trails include two open bowls - Schweitzer Bowl and Outback Bowl. 10% of the terrain is beginner, 40% intermediate, 35% advanced and 15% is expert. Accommodating every level of skier and rider, Schweitzer also has an open gate policy for access to out-of-bounds terrain that spans over 200 additional miles of the Selkirk Mountains. Skier/Rider danger exists beware – The limitless sidecountry and backcountry terrain spans across the Idaho panhandle, eastern Washington and southeastern British Columbia.
