Idaho locals love Schweitzer Mountain Resort’s 2900 acres of big mountain terrain with big views of Lake Pend, and Ikon Pass holders will now too.

The Idaho gem has joined the Ikon Pass and pass holders will have access to seven days at Schweitzer with no blackout dates in the 2021/2022 season, and Ikon Base Pass holders will have access to five days each, with select blackout dates. Schweitzer is also available on the Ikon Session Pass.

Located in the Selkirk Mountains overlooking the picturesque town of Sandpoint, Idaho, only 80 miles from Spokane Washington, Schweitzer is the largest ski area in Idaho and Washington, often recognised for its renowned tree skiing and family fun.

“Schweitzer is home to a passionate group of skiers and riders who are deeply attached to this place and each other. When new skiers discover Schweitzer for the first time, it’s always amazing to see how quickly they connect with the vibe on the mountain,” said Tom Chasse, President and CEO, Schweitzer.

“That’s what skiing is all about and we are excited to join the Ikon Pass community and look forward to welcoming new skiers and riders to the Schweitzer family.”

Each Ikon Pass comes with Adventure Assurance that offers options to Ikon Pass holders that help provide flexibility and alleviate some uncertainty throughout the winter season. This year, Adventure Assurance comes free with every 21/22 Ikon Pass product.

The Ikon Pass unlocks adventure with access to 45 iconic winter destinations across the Americas, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand and is a collaboration of industry leaders – Alterra Mountain Company, Aspen Skiing Company, Boyne Resorts, POWDR, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Alta Ski Area, Snowbird, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, SkiBig3, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, RED Mountain, Taos Ski Valley, Windham Mountain, Schweitzer, Zermatt, Thredbo, Mt Buller, Niseko United, Valle Nevado, and NZ Ski.
