Skiers can now shred the Selkirks with 2,900 acres of big mountain terrain.
Just as spring skiing gives way to summer sports, The Ikon Pass added a little oomph today to keep the skiers through until next winter. For the years 2021 to 2022, pass holders have access to Schweitzer Mountain, the largest ski area in Idaho and neighboring Washington.
Holders of an Ikon pass have access to 7 days at Schweitzer without blackout dates. Icon Base Pass holders have access to 5 days with selected blackout dates. Schweitzer is also available on the Ikon Session Pass.
“We are delighted to invite Ikon Pass holders to Idaho to discover the great terrain and special culture of Schweitzer,” said Erik Forsell, chief marketing officer at Ikon’s parent company Alterra Mountain Company. “Schweitzer is a unique and independent mountain that is ideal for the Ikon Pass community.”
The addition of Schweitzer gives pass holders 2,900 acres of big mountain skiing. Located 80 miles from Spokane, Washington, in the city of Sandpoint, Idaho, Schweitzer prides itself on “breathtaking views of Lake Pend Oreille,” the largest lake in Gem State.
It’s also considered the best family-friendly resort in the entire Pacific Northwest with “massive bowls and well-known tree skiing.” With Schweitzer, Ikon now offers access to 45 destinations worldwide.
