schweitzer mountain: A busy month at Schweitzer! - 12/30/12 09:08 AM
Just as I was getting ready to kick back and enjoy my family over the Holidays (including my birthday), clients came out of the woodwork requiring quick closings to take advantage of the incredible early snow depth at Schweitzer Mountain.  Relying on a little luck and whatever finesse I could muster, the mission was accomplished!  The fact that Schweitzer is currently leading the pack with the highest snow total of any major ski area in the states certainly has helped make this Holiday Season go a little bit smoother.  


schweitzer mountain: Boulder Ridge at Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint, Idaho - new listing! - 10/01/12 05:31 AM
It doesn’t get more pristine than this.  Boulder Ridge is located just 1 mile above Schweitzer Mountain Resort providing easy access to Schweitzer’s world-class ski runs yet secluded enough to offer “get-away” privacy for the family.  The photo below does not lie…the views from “The Ridge” are unparalleled and the hiking, snowshoeing & cross country trails are spectacular!

Boulder Ridge is currently a ski-in / shuttle-out condo complex.  Schweitzer Mountain Resort provides FREE shuttle service to and from Boulder Ridge on weekends making ski access about as convenient as possible. (CLICK HERE TO VIEW MLS LISTING)

Unit #12 is the perfect … (2 comments)

schweitzer mountain: 342 W. Shingle Mill Rd. Log Home in Sandpoint, Idaho's Selle Valley - 02/24/12 05:23 AM

Sandpoint's Selle Valley is known for it's overpowering views of Schweitzer Mountain Resort to the west and the overwhelming view of the Cabinet Mountains to the east (encompassing over 94,000 acres and protected by the Wilderness Act of 1964).
The massive Schweitzer Bowls continually loom over "The Selle" reminding us of one of the reasons why we live in this Northwest Paradise.  I was one of many who were lured to "powderful" Sandpoint, Idaho to frolic in Schweitzer Mountain's winter wonderland but that's not really what keeps me here.
Summer in Sandpoint and it's coveted Selle Valley is what helped garner the "Most … (4 comments)

schweitzer mountain: Speechless Sunday: Sandpoint/Schweitzer "Epic Day!" - 02/05/12 08:12 AM
If you remember North Lake Tahoe 20 years ago, you will appreciate Sandpoint today.  These photos from yesterday say it all.  The "immaculate Sandpoint/Schweitzer Winter" continues.  In fact, today I rode my bike 20 miles in the bright/warm sunshine...this marks the 12th straight month of outdoor biking!  That is truly amazing...especially considering I was skiing Schweitzer Mountain's soft powder on a 105" base yesterday just 11 miles from downtown Sandpoint!
No wonder we've been recently awarded, "Best Ski Town In The U.S." (Rand Mcnally), "Most Beautiful Town In America" (USA Today) and, for you investors out there, Most Under The Radar Ski Town (Sunsets Magazine)!

schweitzer mountain: Sandpoint, Idaho voted #1 ski town in America! - 01/22/12 07:03 AM
Well, this came as a bit of a surprise.  I love it here in Sandpoint but...#1 ski town in the U.S.?  The folks at Rand McNally really do love us.  I guess I can just sit back now and fend off the onslaught of buyers hoping to be a part of this bonanza.  I'm thinking that may not happen but our notoriety certainly can't hurt business.  The great part of this is our geographical location...Sandpoint is located in a narrow valley between Lake Pend Oreille and the Selkirk Mountains.  We're just not going to get a massive population explosion with sprawling … (3 comments)

schweitzer mountain: Schweitzer Mountain 2012, Sandpoint, ID - The Immaculate Winter? - 01/06/12 09:46 AM
If you look around the ski world, races and events are being canceled on a regular basis.  Snow coverage is shockingly low and, in Europe, almost non-existent.  Schweitzer Mountain is the exception and I, for one, am happy to ride this wave as long as I can.  As of this post, Schweitzer has the 9th deepest snowpack in North America and has enjoyed 2900 acres of skiable/open terrain since the first week in December.
Today marks the 2nd day of the SCHWEITZER NORTHWEST (FIS) CUP, a high level, FIS licensed giant slalom running January 5 - 8.  The racers are getting … (0 comments)

schweitzer mountain: Merry Christmas from Schweitzer Mountain 2011! - 12/20/11 02:23 PM
It has been a special year so far at Schweitzer Mountain.  While so many ski areas are struggling with some pretty strange weather, Schweitzer has been blessed with some massive early storms.  See you on the slopes!

Thank you to the entire Activerain community!  You guys are the BEST!

schweitzer mountain: Tennis properties in Sandpoint? We've got 'em! - 06/29/11 05:33 PM
Most who read my blog know that I coach the Sandpoint High School tennis team (when I'm not playing full-time Realtor).  As a result, I get a fair amount of inquiries about the availability of "tennis properties" here.  In fact, I get a fair amount of inquiries asking if anyone "really" knows how to play tennis in North Idaho.
The answers are...we DO have many tennis-oriented properties available at any given time and, yes, we do play real tennis in North Idaho.  In fact, we have a VERY active tennis community!  The Sandpoint Tennis Association has about 80 active members who … (1 comments)

schweitzer mountain: Another huge year for tennis in Sandpoint, Idaho! - 06/05/11 12:37 PM
Living in Sandpoint definitely has its rewards.  Being a Coldwell Banker Realtor® on Schweitzer Mountain is reward doubt, but coaching the Sandpoint High School tennis team takes "rewards" to a whole new level.
It's all about the kids and these kids are amazing!  This Spring, Sandpoint won the District championship for the 3rd straight year and qualified a record 12 players for State!  The Sandpoint girls not only won Conference & District championships but also won the Idaho State Academic Championship with a cumulative GPA of 3.87!  The boys team suffered an "anemic" 3.5 cumulative GPA.  In other words, not … (2 comments)

schweitzer mountain: WORDLESS WEDNESDAY...Turkey Day? - 04/26/11 05:05 PM

I see Tom (above) virtually every day when I drive to the office on Schweitzer Mountain.  He is VERY protective of his brood of 10 females.  I always thought of wild turkeys as scrawny with lots of dark meat.  This guy looks like he is ready for the Thanksgiving table right now.

schweitzer mountain: SPEECHLESS SUNDAY: HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! - 02/13/11 10:02 AM
AHHH, February.  This is the month everyone waits for.  The snow is soft and plentiful, the frigid days are "mostly" behind us and the skiing is spectacular.  Valentine's Day on Schweitzer Mountain is always a good day!

Enjoy the view from the top of White Lightning above the Great Basin quad!  No one tires of this view!

schweitzer mountain: The Bottom is Coming! The Bottom is Coming! There's more to it than that. - 01/28/11 10:40 AM
It was a busy day today.  I showed some clients around the mountain (SCHWEITZER MOUNTAIN, that is) and they were duly impressed. They’re great clients and very savvy to the declining market scenario.  The question is, how long do they wait to find the bottom of the market.  ...and when it arrives, will they realize it?
I certainly am not going to attempt to force their hand in any way.  I did need to point out that there is another scenario they need to grasp when making the decision to purchase:
Interest rates play an important role in a … (6 comments)

schweitzer mountain: Kodak Video Challenge - Schweitzer Real Estate - The Ridge at Schweitzer - 01/17/11 03:17 PM
OK.  Here goes my first attempt at video marketing.  
The (hopefully) correctly imbedded video is of my new listing on Schweitzer Mountain...The Ridge.  This afternoon, a potentially massive snow storm is approaching from the North.  If you had a home on The Ridge, you could watch all the storms come in and get "psyched" for the greatest powder skiing on the planet the next day!

schweitzer mountain: Second homes: Having it all in Sandpoint, Idaho - 04/28/10 03:21 PM
It just wouldn't be right if I didn't reprint portions of the recent "USA Today" article about our quaint little town up here in North Idaho.  Sandpoint truly is a gem and, even though it kills me to see it discovered, when it becomes a headline story in major periodicals I just need to relax and relish in the beauty around here.  Besides, because of the rather narrow corridor between the Selkirk Mountains and the shores of Lake Pend Oreille within which Sandpoint finds itself residing, it would be hard to imagine a situation where rampant sprawl could occur.

schweitzer mountain: SPEECHLESS SUNDAY: NORTH IDAHO'S SELKIRK CREST - 04/04/10 06:06 PM

This photo (the view I see every day driving away from my house here in Sandpoint) ALWAYS puts things in perspective.  As I write this post, once again this view serves to calm the nerves.  ...I've been trying to post this photo for two hours without much luck.  I find myself involved in a major battle with the AR Proxy Error Dialogue Box.  I think I have finally one this round.  (I have an about extra points for dealing with this boondoggle?)
Please enjoy the view.  The geese are relaxing in a meadow off of Whiskey Jack Circle and … (16 comments)


Most of us want to be a integral part of everything around us.  Not only a member of a community, but a member of the natural order of things.  When living in a town like Sandpoint, it seems to me that to be removed from the energy of the town itself, is a little defeating.  …and yet, when one chooses to live in the beauty of North Idaho, there is also that sense that we need to remove ourselves from the trappings of a modern society and return to the natural … (3 comments)
