Here are some things to do at Schweitzer Resort in Idaho! Near Sandpoint this ski town turns into an adventure playground during the summer!
If you are looking for an amazing family resort in Idaho, or live out of state and want to visit somewhere beautiful where there’s lots to do during the Winter and Summertime then Schweitzer Resort is the place to be! Of course it is a ski resort and all that comes with that fun sport when it is snowing but during the Summer there are tons of other fun things to do which we will share with you today.
Here’s what we did while we were there!
So we live in Boise but heard how amazing Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint was so we headed up that way for a week so we could see for ourselves and add it to our road trip blog.
Here are the activities we did……
To start we were given wristbands that included unlimited zip lining, rock climbing wall, trampoline, and rides up and down the ski lift as well….plus it included a fun bag of “jewels” the kids could uncover in their gold mining area….special thanks goes out to Schweitzer Mtn. for offering these to us so we could share our experiences with all of you. 😉
Of course they started on the zip line!
All strapped in and zooming down the mountain, all the girls took a trip and loved it!
I will say first off the views anywhere you stand at Schweitzer resort are amazing.
From the bottom of the mountain, while traveling up/down the ski lift, and especially at the top it is just breathtaking.
There were tons of different rocks in each bag when they sifted through the sand with a paper inside identifying which ones they found too.
If you have never been on a ski lift outside of skiing it is a totally different experience if you ask me.
- The views are gorgeous and if you decide to hike up to the top you can catch a free ride down too.
With the wristband you can use it as many times as you want that day which is nice.
We took it to the top and had lunch at their mountain top restaurant!
After a bite to eat and hanging out at the top for a bit my husband and oldest daughter decided to go on an e bike ride on a few electric bikes to give those a whirl!
They are both into mountain biking so they thought that would be an interesting twist and thought it was fun!
Taken out in a small group it wasn’t too advanced and with the help of the bike when you wanted a little oomph it wasn’t strenuous either. It was up to you when or if you wanted to use the bike’s power….and of course the scenery was amazing!
- We actually went on two amazing bike rides during this vacation. One you’ll see below at Schweitzer and on the way we did the Hiawatha bike trail which is out of this world.
Here’s a video of our time there and there E Bike ride:
As far as Idaho resorts go Schweitzer Mtn is definitely a must see + right now you can get your 3rd night free when you book two!
We stayed at the Selkirk Lodge with 2 queen beds and it had plenty of room, a microwave, mini fridge, t.v., and a great view out on the balcony!
Of course there are other activities/offers available if you visit during the Winter so we look forward to visiting then too and sharing that visit!
