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)!
The photo below is not from yesterday. I thought it might be worth a look (for the uninitiated) to see downtown Sandpoint on the shores of Pend Oreille.
