Epic Terrain

Schweitzer ranks as one of the nation’s top winter destinations with 2,900 acres of amazing terrain thanks to its two massive bowls and renowned tree skiing. Located in the Selkirk Mountains of the northern Idaho panhandle, and only 80 miles from Spokane, WA, Schweitzer overlooks the town of Sandpoint, ID and offers breathtaking views of three states, Canada and the impressive Lake Pend Oreille. Add in one of the best cat skiing outfits in the country (Selkirk Powder Company) and you get a phenomenal destination for winter fun.

Lodging At The Selkirk

The cozy and convenient Selkirk Lodge is the heart of Schweitzer’s village. The hotel offers ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes with staff at your service 24 hours a day! Selkirk also offers an outdoor heated swimming pool, hot tubs, and dining in the Chimney Rock Grill.

Lodging at The Humbird

Humbird is Schweitzer’s new boutique hotel located in the heart of the village and provides ski-in/ski-out access. Drawing on the architectural heritage of Schweitzer basin, Humbird’s exterior is shaped through cross laminated timber (CLT), metal panels, and large expanses of glass. Structural elements are exposed and highlighted to enhance the sense of enclosure and warmth inside the lodge.

About Sandpoint

Conveniently located only 11 miles from Schweitzer Mountain, on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille, Sandpoint has it all including a thriving arts community, fantastic restaurants, and local craft beers & wines.

The Gilson Experience

Having logged over 75,000 miles in our 1976 Airstream touring the country's resorts, we've been fortunate to experience some amazing destinations. Schweitzer is truly a hidden gem and we are so excited to experience this discovery with you. We’re working alongside their team to create a once in a lifetime trip for our community. The week will be filled with tons of on-snow time, guided rides to get to know the mountain, ski-in/ski-out lodging, on-mountain parties and après with live music, food, drinks and badass new friends. You're not going to want to miss this week!
