    49/silver Combo pass bought... thatís a whole lot of mediocre skiing for $459. Plan on supplementing with day tickets here and there at Schweitzer to remind myself what Iím missing.

    No. Weíre doing CDA now. If I was living in Sandpoint itíd be no question on a Schweitzer pass.

    Good move, CdA is a great town and very centrally located for the ski hills in the area. Get familiar with these guys and you'll open your doors for some great touring in the area, especially over by Lookout. Stevens Peak is a fairly easy access from there and is very good, or at least I'm told (haven't gone, myself).

    That 49/Silver pass is a steal and I hope they sell a ton of them! Citizens of Spokane should buy them over Schweitzer no question. So much value with multiple options all within easy striking distance. Just what the market needed to increase sales. Excellent choice LVS!

    lol

    Let's be honest here. All the skiing in the Inland PNW is mediocre. Including Schweitzer. There is no real lift served alpine terrain. Just a bunch of east coast style cut runs between swampy cedar trees and fir thickets. The little open terrain just leads to nearly uphill flats that requires you to then traverse through crowds of tourist gapers flown in directly from Chicago and Dallas headed for Stella.

    If I was smart I would have bought a pass at Red Mountain or Whitewater and just commute up on the weekends. That's where the real skiing is.

    Red is sweet... but how often would you really make the 3-4 hr drive, past a bunch of decent skiing, on wintry mountain roads? With that logic in play, how many times did you make it to Crystal?

    Lookout will be pretty good with the expansion.

    Hyperbole for Mooseknuckles enjoyment.

    Iím sure red is neat but Iím not going to leave pow to ski pow (paraphrasing 2funky) just like I donít ski crystal or even alpental.

    Lookout is going to be fantastic with the expansion. Some really great terrain will be in play. A 1 mile skin to Stevens Peak will be neat. St Regis Basin looks like it has some cool lines too.

    Lift served is the caveat. Been ogling the Cabinets and Selkirks. The Selkirks look neat but damn the Cabinets look like a cool range. Hope to get up there this summer and check it out.

    So whatís the deal if I bought the silver pass before the option to have 49 on it as well? Iíll call tomorrow but wondering if any of yíall are in that predicament?

    LS- we too are moving to CdA. Arrival early July. Need to get dialed w the BC up there. Driving to the wallowas will be a thing of the past. Although I am heading there in a week. Temps and cover look perfect!

    Give silver a call this weekend and you can pay the diff between the silver pass and combo pass and be ready to go. Increased crowds at Silver for sure this winter as a result of the combo deal.

    Closing this season at Silver on cinco de Mayo for free was a great idea. Rode all day.

    Snow forecast for the Panhandle is starting to look pretty gnarly, with 18Ē of snow and 55mph winds....

    Are there some good grass slopes to ski Monday?
