Schweitzer scored highest in the three-state region of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington in the overall favorite and nightlife categories. The ratings were based primarily on readers' average ranking, number of reviews, and specific comments made in OnTheSnow.com over the winter season. "More and more skiers and snowboarders are relying on the word of their peers when they make resort choices," said Mountain News President and Publisher Rob Brown, whose company publishes OnTheSnow.com. "We believe the importance of reader advisories will continue to grow each year and these annual awards provide a peek into their thinking." Reviewers were clear in their comments: "After being out of the area for 24 years, I returned to Schweitzer only to be completely amazed at the growth of not only the village, but the added lifts and skiable area… It was great, the view is breathtaking, my family loves it, great snow, kind people and, of course, the terrain is awesome… Schweitzer is one of the most underrated mountains I have skied… A beautiful setting, especially if you get to see the lake below. Plenty of runs for everyone and a terrain park for the more adventurous." You can see three mountain ranges from the top. The terrain goes from smooth corduroy groomers to wide open bowls and gladed runs. Stella is the star here. She is Idaho's only six-person high-speed lift. There are 2,900 skiable acres, 85 trails, plus open bowl skiing. Click HERE to read the reviews.
