ACTIVITIES: ON THE MOUNTAIN
"Schweitzer is one of those little-known gems of the Northwest. It's difficult to see how this huge place remains hidden though. It offers 2,500 acres of skiing terrain, a vertical drop of near 2,500 feet, trails that stretch more than two miles. There are 59 named trails, and a good amount of bowl skiing (open snow fields with few or no trees to get in the way)." - msn.com, October 29, 2002

Head up 2,000 vertical feet to the top of Schweitzer Mountain for spectacular views of Lake Pend Oreille, the surrounding mountain ranges and Canada. For the adventurous, hike or bike back to the village via the extensive trail system.

Hiking is the most peaceful way to get to know Schweitzer's extensive trail system. And the reward is dramatic, sweeping views of Lake Pend Oreille and Canada.
Choose from the way fun Bungee Jump Trampoline or the Climbing Wall with four unique routes for all skill levels. The Bungee Jump Trampoline is a must - with 30 feet worth of air plus double and triple flips - it's a scream.
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.
