Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint, ID

The numbers at Schweitzer speak for themselves: 2,900 skiable acres; 300+ inches of average annual snowfall; three terrain parks; 92 runs, including a 2.4-mile continuous groomer; 20 miles of nordic trails; and the state’s only high-speed six-person lift. Views from the top include three mountain ranges, three states, Canada, and 65-mile-long Lake Pend Oreille. Not only that, lift lines are nearly nonexistent, and a ticket will set you back just $68. Nonskiers will love the free movies, guided snowshoe hikes ($15), and on-mountain wine tastings (from $10) at Gourmandie.
