Selkirk Powder Cat Skiing

Schweitzer Cat Skiing with Selkirk Powder Company

Selkirk Powder Company offers cat skiing tours on the backside of the ski resort where you can revel in amongst the untracked powder. The minimum ability level is for very strong intermediate riders who are competent riding black diamond terrain, ungroomed slopes, and in amongst trees. So if you fit the bill and think (or already know!) that you’ll really enjoy riding fresh powder, then definitely add a day or two out with Selkirk Powder to your Schweitzer itinerary.

Selkirk Powder Heli Skiing

If you're a greedy powder hound, for an even bigger and better experience you can go heli skiing with Selkirk Powder Guides. The heli staging area is at the Sandpoint Airport which is pretty close to Schweitzer Ski Resort.

Cross Country Skiing Schweitzer

Schweitzer has 32km of Nordic skiing trails. Conveniently the trails depart from the Schweitzer village, and ski rentals are available from the Ski and Ride Center in the village. Alternatively you can rent snowshoes and enjoy the serenity of the trails on showshoes.


Woo hoo! There’s tubing available at Schweitzer on weekends, and the tubing area is conveniently located next to the beginners’ ski area near the village.


In addition to cat skiing, Selkirk Powder offers guided backcountry snowmobile trips. This is a great activity for powder hounds of a different variety!


If your body needs some R&R or a major overhaul, there’s a day spa at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, located in the Selkirk Lodge. Solstice Spa provides a range of relaxing massage treatments, reflexology, and body scrubs.
