Schweitzer named best ski village in the world | News
Locals know that Schweitzer is some of the best skiing in the world, but now the rest of the world is sharing the good news. World Property Channel named the mountain and nearby Sandpoint the best ski village in the world.
Based out of Miami, World Property Channel is a digital news network that is specializes in real estate news and information. The travel section of the website recently published the Top 12 Skiing Villages in the World, which ranks the top ski destinations according to author Steve Winston. While the article is based solely on Winston’s own experiences and opinion, it’s still a nice shout out to the Idaho Panhandle.
Schweitzer was named number one on the list beating out popular destinations like Whistler in Canada and Vail in Colorado. The mountain was also listed above ski villages in France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Winston cites Schweitzer as his personal favorite because skiers can enjoy the mountain and the scenery without the “pretentious crowds” that have been known to frequent better known resorts.
