We drove up for the beautiful view. It did not disappoint us. It was breathtaking! We want to try to stay at the Selkirk Lodge. The village at the top looks interesting. Fun places to eat and shop.

This is my favorite Ski Resort in the world. Lots of moms and dads teaching their toddlers to ski at the same time they learn to walk. Really sweet.

We used to rent a one bedroom condo that had a double bed and a bunk bed in the bedroom. The living room also had a hide-a-bed. Many of the condo's are rented through the main Schweitzer hotel booking office.
