The skiing at Schweitzer is some of the finest you're going to find anywhere, especially in the Pacific Northwest... As far as the ski resort, it's a nice little Resort, however probably the worst service I ever had was In the Chimney Rock Grill...

Beautiful view and staff friendly and helpful. The ski lodge at the top was a little high priced and food was not very good for price.

World class skiing, great snow, never any lines, you can usually find untracked until noon on snowy days. Prices are a bit steep, but always great skiing.

We stayed for two nights and it was wonderful. Heavy snow was falling all night so we just got dinner at the local pizza place on the mountain and relaxed the evening away.

Spent a couple of hours enjoying the summit of Schweitzer with family and a few libations. Even on a warm summer day, the summit was nice and cool. The lift tickets are a little pricey. In hindsight, we should have planned for more time to...More

We took the chairlift to the top of the mountain, which had amazing views. What I liked about this chairlift it was only 15.00 and you could go up and down as many times as you liked. You could even just stay on the lift...More
