When the snow flies in the northwest that doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up indoors. One of my favorite winter time activities is skiing and has been since I was little and ski raced. If you’re looking for a winter wonderland weekend getaway of fun, we have one for you. Only 11 miles outside Sandpoint is Schweitzer Mountain. The largest resort in Idaho and Washington with twenty nine hundred acres to ski and board. Plenty of room to play and explore for all skill levels. If you’ve never been here it is a destination to put on your to do list for sure! Averaging 300 inches of snow each year and with renowned terrain and tree skiing it almost guarantees you a great day on the mountain. No matter what your level, there are tons of runs to enjoy all over the mountain. After a full day of playing, or if making turns isn’t your style, there is also a fantastic lodge. There are lots of shops too so everyone in your group can have fun on your winter weekend getaway.
