A big mountain with lots of vertical, leg burners.
Lots of car traffic.
I first rode Schweitzer two days ago, will be spending my winter here, and am very pleased with all the great terrain. Lots of vertical means the runs last a long time. If you ride the t-bar you can get a great long run with lots of trees, deep stashed, and few people. If you like a resort feel this is a good mountain for you, lots of things going on in the village. They also charge for the shuttle bus, not cool. I would recomend driving up the mountain, but if you want to park close you need to pay $15, also not cool. To not pay to park you have to park on the fall line lot, which unloads you at the bunny hill and you have to wait in long lines to access the main lifts. The mountain and the town seem to have alot of traffic, I feel like I am back home in Minneapolis somtimes driving around. Overall I like the mountain and the city of Sandpoint, but if the mountain was not kick-ass the negatives would keep me away in the future. I guess I just miss Brundage.
