Hit the Slopes Skiing in Idaho

Nestled on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille rests a waterfront resort community that’s close to everything you need for a memorable getaway. As a four seasons resort, Dover Bay Resort is the perfect destination any time of year. Our community near Sandpoint is the ideal home base for those who love to embrace all that comes with winter. Not only will you have a cozy place to warm up after a day of fun, but you’ll also be close to some of the best skiing in Idaho.

Everything to Know about Schweitzer Mountain

World-class skiing is only a 30-minute drive from your Lake Pend Oreille rental. Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort has earned a reputation for being a go-to place for skiing in Northern Idaho. Found in the Selkirk Mountains, this resort has almost 3,000 acres of terrain, which means plenty of breathtaking beauty to take in on your rides.

 

The mountain generally opens toward the end of November, but this is all dependent on both natural snowfall and the resort’s snowmaking efforts. The best way to keep track of conditions is to check their report for updates.

Lift Tickets

You have several options for lift tickets, ranging from full-day to half-day tickets. If you know you’re going to be visiting us quite often during the winter, consider purchasing a season pass.

Ski Lessons

Whether you’re new to this sport or simply looking to improve your skills, reserve your lesson with an experienced coach. With lessons available for all ages and skill levels, you can find something that fits your needs and group best.

Ski Trails and Special Events

Home to two bowls, there is no shortage of trails at Schweitzer. The Outback Bowl is found just over the ridge and is home to runs of all levels. Head to the top of the Schweitzer Bowl on one of two high-powered quad lifts. For a unique skiing experience, purchase tickets for Twilight Skiing, which takes place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Reserve Your Ski Vacation Home Base

After a long day of skiing, head back to the comfort of Dover Bay Resort, one of the top waterfront resorts in Idaho. Rest up for another day of fun while watching the snow fall from the comfort of your cozy home base. Our resort features a range of accommodation options, including bungalows, lofts, and condos. This variety allows us to host groups of all sizes and budgets.
