Your ticket to Idaho's largest ski area

As Idaho's largest ski area, Schweitzer Mountain Resort is covered with countless trails and almost 3,000 acres of skiable terrain. Not to mention an impressive 300 inches of annual snowfall. It's anchored by a lively village brimming with cafes, restaurants and snow sports outfitters. And then there's the appealingly lively apres ski scene. Want to stay close to the action? From luxury log cabins to cozy condos, Schweitzer Mountain Resort vacation rentals put you in the heart of the village.

Things to do

Lazy days in Schweitzer Village

For guaranteed thrills, head to Hermits Hollow Tubing Centre. With 2 lanes spanning over 100 yards, you can slip and slide down the mountain then get towed back to the top. Meanwhile, after a long day on the slopes, there's no better place to soothe your muscles than the Solstice Spa. From full body massages to indulgent facials, you'll leave feeling utterly pampered. Craving a rest day? Located in the Selkirk Lodge Lobby, the Selkirk Theater screens several movies a day. Stop by the Activity Center for a daily schedule.

Activities

Snow days in the Selkirk Mountains

Unsurprisingly, winter sports are the biggest drawcard at Schweitzer Mountain Resort. As well as skiing and snowboarding, the park offers snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and more. Come summer, Schweitzer Mountain Resort transforms into an outdoor playground. The Selkirk Mountains are laced with hiking trails that wind past old growth forests, wildflower-filled fields and bubbling streams. From late July to early August, Schweitzer explodes in a sea of huckleberries. With Schweitzer Mountain Resort vacation rentals, you can pick to your heart's content, then whip up huckleberry pies in your private kitchen.
