Schweitzer Rocks! Very underrated and still undiscovered. Am expert skier and love the mountain. Came from Mammoth, was over the crowds and how fast it got tracked out. Also alpine mountains like Mammoth and Bachelor always have the top closed due to wind anyway. Schweitzer has great steeps if you know where to look; so much extra terrain for fresh tracks in the out of bounds and its simple to ski back to lifts. Vibe is great, people want to be here and there is virtually no attitude. Can ski freshies several days after a storm. Snow amount is always underreported - 2-3 inches can mean 6-12 on back side. Nightlife is also good- great parties around the mountain, at the new St Bernard, and Taps.
