Posted By: Freeride Chronicles on December 31, 2013 9:45 am

There’s nothing better than spending the Holidays with family and friends skiing at your home mountain. I’ve been lucky enough to call Schweitzer Mountain Resort in North Idaho’s Panhandle my home mountain for over 30 years. This is where I’ve been spending the last week enjoy the incredible sunrises, skiing and good friendships

I’m not going to lie we like most resorts on the west could go for a good major RESET with the snow. There’s a few rocks and twigs showing but overall Schweitzer is skiing pretty darn good. With traces of snowfall here and the snow is staying somewhat fresh.

With 100% of the mountain open there’s plenty of run for the Christmas crowds and threes even a few areas that are skiing fabulous like the South Bowl on the frontside. We spent last Saturday the 28th hot lapping the silky corduroy on the Ridge run and the steeps on C-Chute with its’ chalky wind-blown snow. Mix in a little, ok a lot of sunshine it made for a great day. I know, It’s still early in the season, and here at Schweitzer were only one good snowfall from conditions turning from ok to epic.

Here’s a recap of what went down on Saturday at Schweitzer Mountain Resort. You can be the judge. Mountain Resort-Christmas Break
