MOUN­TAIN MAGIC

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - Recreation & Investment Properties -

From the top of Sch­weitzer Moun­tain Re­sort in Idaho, peo­ple can en­joy the views of three moun­tain ranges, along with views of Canada and three U.S. states.

With a ver­ti­cal drop of about 730 me­tres, Sch­weitzer is in line with re­sorts such as Nakiska, Kim­ber­ley and Ver­non, B.C.’s Sil­ver Star. The snow is dry and deep, much like Fernie and Kim­ber­ley.

The ter­rain of­fers ex­cel­lent ad­vanced and ex­pert ski­ing and board­ing, while still pro­vid­ing plenty of beginner and in­ter­me­di­ate op­tions. The hill has a high- speed six-pack named Stella, as well as two high-speed quads, one triple chair, three dou­bles, a T-bar and a magic car­pet. Three ter­rain parks keep it in­ter­est­ing for the freestyler­s. The long­est groomer is 3.2 kilo­me­tres of cor­duroy. Visit sch­weitzer.com
