Great snow, steeps, backcountry access, 2 parks
long lines on "Snow Ghost",
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!
