Overview by Steve Giordano

Schweitzer is big—2,900 skiable acres—and it's coming on big in the minds of destination skiers. Families who have gone to the central Rockies for years for their annual ski vacations are gravitating to the Selkirks at the western edge of the northern Rockies. Arctic air fluffs up the annual snowfall of 300 inches, and intermediate-to-expert terrain covers 90 percent of the mountain.

Skiers enjoy Schweitzer's two uncluttered big bowls, woods, and powder chutes, not to mention its bargain rates. Plus, there is a guarantee. If any skier feels that snow conditions don't meet expectations, the lift ticket can be exchanged within an hour for a snowcheck, good for any other day during the season.

There is lodging on the mountain, in Sandpoint, and 11 miles down-mountain on the shores of 1,000-foot-deep Lake Pend Oreille. Schweitzer is 352 miles east of Seattle, and Sandpoint is served by Amtrak.
