SCVG22.indd 4

Taking a break from the epic runs of Schweitzer Mountain Resort.

Psst. Want in on a secret? Schweitzer, our fabulous ski mountain, is Idaho's largest by area, with 2900 acres of amazing terrain for all abilities. Yet Ski Magazine ranks it among the five best "under the radar" ski areas in the nation. And our abundant annual snows provide for other amazing sports, from XC skiing and snowshoeing to fat-tire biking. Winter? It's just plain fun in Sandpoint.
