About Schweitzer, Idaho
Nestled in Northwest Idaho, 12 miles from Sandpoint, and less than two hours from the Spokane, Washington airport-- you’ll find down-to-earth Schweitzer Mountain Resort. This rustic, quaint ski area is considered a hidden gem, and SKI Magazine even nominated it “The Best Kept Secret in North America.” One, because you won’t have to fight crowds or waste your ski vacation in lift lines, and two, because there are 3,300 acres of skiable terrain and a consistent 300 inches of snow annually.
Schweitzer—which means “Swiss man” in German—derived its namesake from a former local hermit. And while its nomenclature might be peculiar, you’ll find nothing shifty about Schweitzer’s devoted locals and the resort’s services. For lodging, you’ll find a tirade of condo options, making a Schweitzer ski vacation an easy choice for families or large groups.
