Full review

Headed to Schweizter after disappointment at Red Mountain in BC. Coverage was pretty good at least on all groomed runs. A lot of the expert needed more snow and had a lot of shrubs showing. It was supposed to be sunny, and it was for the first thirty minutes but then a cloud landed on the mountain and stayed all day. Front side was almost un-ski-able due to poor visibility but outback on Ghost Chair not too bad and camped out there all afternoon. I was very surprised how big the place is and I would love to try again with more snow. Lots of very nice expert runs and glades. Just two hours from Spokane airport it is a great alternative to Part City and Tahoe.
