Why Choose This Trip?
A unique skiing experience!  Schweitzer is the largest ski area in Idaho and Washington.  The resort boasts 2,900 acres of varied terrain for skiing and snowboarding.  It is home to incredible bowls, chutes, groomed cruisers and some of the best tree skiing in America (over 1,200 acres of trees).  This resort offers something for everyone!

Mountain Stats:
Base elevation is 4,700 feet and summit elevation is 6,400 feet which is great news for those who have trouble with altitude –no acclimation necessary!!  The vertical drop is 2,400 feet and annual snowfall averages 300 inches.

 

There are 92 well maintained trails (10% beginner, 40% intermediate, 35% advanced and 15% expert) plus open bowl skiing.  The longest continuous groomed run is 2 miles in length so you can get your morning workout on one run!

 

There are 32 kilometers of Nordic trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and fat tire snow biking.  Snow tubing is also offered.  Hermit’s Hollow Tubing Center has 2 side-by-side chutes that stretch over 100 yards.


Lift lines, what lift lines?  There are none!!  A network of 7 lifts (including one high-speed 6-passenger chair named Stella and two high-speed quads) move skiers and riders to the top in minutes.  Total uphill capacity is 12,502 people per hour.


The resort has its own cat skiing operation, Selkirk Powder Company.  This resort is the perfect opportunity to give cat-skiing a try.  Day long adventures start from the summit and have skiers on untracked backcountry powder by 9:30 a.m.  Skiers typically complete up to 10 runs and rack up as much as 14,000 vertical feet on 4,350 acres of diverse terrain. They also offer guided snowmobile tours along groomed logging roads through thousands of acres of private and state-owned forests and has the only heli-skiing.
