Enjoy Winter in Sandpoint

‘Tis the skison!

When we talk about some of the most epic skiing and boarding in the Northwest, you can do the math. Schweitzer Mountain Resort offers up 2,900 skiable acres with varied terrain for all abilities; 2,400 feet of vertical; and 92 named ski runs with 10 lifts. Yeah, that adds up to EPIC!

And just down the mountain, here’s something else epic this winter in Sandpoint: four incredible craft breweries, Matchwood, Utara, Laughing Dog, and MickDuffs. And that’s not to mention Sandpoint’s terrific dining, frequent live music, performing arts and town events.
