Growing up in Spokane I've seen Schweitzer progress over the past few years. They're becoming more recognized for the great tree skiing which is why I love Schweitzer. The snow is definitely heavier than the CO fluff, but the base is much deeper and it just takes some getting used to. Overall, Schweitzer is a great place for a family vacation or a weekend of the steep and deep, they have it all!
