Stand at the top and stare at three mountain ranges, Canada and three states. Enjoy a variety of terrain from smooth corduroy groomers to wide open bowls and gladed runs. Then return to the top at hair flying speed thanks in part to Stella. Stella, as you will soon discover, is Idaho’s only six-person high-speed lift.

It’s no secret that Schweitzer is known for its phenomenal tree skiing, extensive uncharted acreage, short lift lines and its awesome 25 ft. average annual snowfall, but what is perhaps less known, maybe something only the locals know, is the magical result of combing the former elements. Schweitzer deserves acknowledgment for its “ridiculously long lasting powder stashes.” Schweitzer may not get quite the massive dumping that the resorts in Utah see, but what it does get is a pretty significant snow-fall over expansive terrain and far fewer people to track it up. Powder stashes can often be found tucked in trees and just off the glade-side groomers days, even weeks after the storm has passed. You just have to know where to look…
