    The foggy basin to the north will definitely be open by then because it will be open at Thanksgiving. Not because snow or anything, just Black Friday shoppers and new hotel capacity that needs filling at Christmas. So the groomers and the early birds will shave a few yards of gravel off the protruding rock and distribute it in the snow to form a nice granite-ice (excuse me: packed powder) composite that flows slowly uphill toward the bottom of each lift over the course of the next month or two. December 22 should be peak gravel season, which is great for traction while you're bootpacking those last few steps up to the lift. Thanks to excellent foresight by OP (and Norseman) there is still time to put the finishing touches on your gravel quiver, so this should be a win-win.

    At least it will be foggy: vaping your favorite herb may be illegal in Idaho, but how would anyone see you? As a mediocre-term resident my paranoia is almost high enough already, but I'm looking forward to some nachos and finally figuring out which of these guys I've surely shared a lift with is actually mooseknuckles.

    With these clinking staves I cast the Spell of the Carving Birdman upon your odeous malodorous broletariat.

    cheers.

    been to schweitzer a couple of times a few years back. nice place. wish is was 2000 ft higher.

    best night skiing i've done. + they have a "dark side".

    rule of life: if it is snowing and there is night skiing, go f'n night skiing... with some tunes.

    1st time walked out of their bar after an iced up day and it dumped like 6" while i was inside plus kept snowing, walked outside like wtf? game on. great session.

    2nd time they had some fire works and it was foggy. everyone was sitting all on the slopes to watch fireworks. kept lapping the lift. it was like skiing in WW2 dodging people sitting / lying on the slopes with the flashes and booms. awesome. only a few kept skiing.

    was never a fan of night skiing from prior experiences until schweitzer. now it is on my radar any place with a storm.

    Bump, update, inquiry.

    I think my clan will roll from Pugetopolis to Colville on the 20th, hanging there for a couple days before continuing to MT. Best chance to ski will be Sunday the 22nd, done as a day trip from Colville.

    What is the drive like from there to Sandpoint/Schwizz in winter? Goog sez 2hrs over Flowery Trail Rd... past 49 deg N.

    Thanks

    Should be fine. Or could be snowy, but not if you bring a well-shod 4x4. So leave that home and we're probably good.

    My limited experience is it's a pretty mellow drive.

    flowery trail is usually easy unless you get there before the plow after a dump. 2hrs+ from colville to the swizz on clear roads.
    Becki teaches there so we do flowery trail to 49* a lot. Will be taking the RV on a few back to back days.
