The Ikon Pass expanded its access and terrain in the Pacific Northwest with the addition of Schweitzer in Idaho. Ikon Pass holders can now take access 45 destinations for the 2021/22 winter season.
Schweitzer is located in the Selkirk Mountains overlooking the town of Sandpoint, ID 80 miles from Spokane, WA offering 2,900 acres of big mountain terrain with views of Lake Pend Oreille, two neighboring states, and Canada. Schweitzer is the largest ski area in Idaho and Washington.
“We are excited to invite Ikon Pass holders to Idaho to discover the big terrain and special culture of Schweitzer,” said Erik Forsell, CMO, Alterra Mountain Company.
Ikon Pass holders will have access to seven days at Schweitzer with no blackout dates, 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.
“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 & 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.”
