Skiing Schweitzer is like having your own private mountain. Our 2900 acres of lift-serviced terrain rank us among the largest resorts in North America. It’s no wonder why the readers of Skiing Magazine voted Schweitzer #2 in the nation in their 2007-2008 reader poll!

Stand at the top and stare at three mountain ranges, Canada and three states. Enjoy a variety of terrain from smooth corduroy groomers to wide open bowls and gladed runs. Then return to the top at hair flying speed thanks in part to Stella. Stella, as you will soon discover, is Idaho’s only six-person high-speed lift.

A modern, efficient network of lifts including one high speed six passenger chair, two high speed quads and 7 other lifts in total whisk skiers and riders to the top in minutes. Lift lines are rare to non-existent and it only gets better from there.

Home to incredible bowls, chutes, groomed cruisers and some of the best tree skiing in America (over 1200 acres of trees!), come find out what many have discovered: Schweitzer offers unmatched terrain and something for everyone.
