About the property

Luxury, private 3 story home with great ski in and ski out access. Sleeps 10.

Crystal Pines is a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath ski in/ski out home located just above Schweitzer Village. Surrounded by Alpine Fir, White Pine and Tamarack trees, Crystal Pines is located just off the South Ridge of Schweitzer Mountain and sleeps 10 very comfortably.

Designed and furnished by a ski-loving family, Crystal Pines makes ski vacations relaxing and easy. Sometimes the most challenging thing about a ski vacation is the “stuff” you need to bring. In addition to 2 garages, Crystal Pines has a separate Ski Room to easily store skis, snowboards, and includes a custom built heated “drying apparatus” for boots, gloves, and apparel.

Put your gear on inside, then open a door and drop town the trail to Schweitzer Village for first tracks. Ski back at lunchtime to enjoy a bowl of hot chili or maybe an afternoon nap.

Snow shoe, cross country ski, tube at Hermit’s Hollow or make a spa appointment at Solstice Spa. There is so much to do here other than ski. Nestled amongst the trees, you'll enjoy the views, different and unique from every room.

When the day is done, coming home is easy. Take the Basin Express chair to Midway, turn left and take Gypsy run back. Soak the day’s tension away in a large hot tub under the stars — then you’re ready for a foosball challenge or game night around the kitchen table. A wide variety of puzzles, games and family movies are provided. A free shuttle service is available on weekends and holidays to take you back & forth to the village -- for those days when you're not skiing or wish to enjoy dinner or drinks out.

Crystal Pines is a luxury home and offers 5 private bedrooms. The large, fully appointed, kitchen services several cooks and the living room’s fireplace adds ambiance and warmth. A Bose surround sound and Blu-ray player are the perfect set up for your favorite playlist or evening movie.

Many don't realize that Schweitzer is the largest resort in Idaho & Washington, offering 2,900 skiable acres, 92 trails, 2 open bowls, Terrain Park, and 32 km of cross country trails. High speed lifts and no wait lines quickly transport you to incredible tree skiing and a variety of challenging terrain.

Summer offers great rates and a completely different experience: mountain bike the trails, then take the Great Escape chairlift back up. Pick huckleberries, hike to a nature filled picnic spot or drop down to the lake for water fun. This is a great home for a family reunion and ‘base’ to explore Sandpoint and make new memories.

Fabulous mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family place and lots of room to spread out or gather all together on main floor.

40" of new snow during our stay, so it was some of the best skiing I can remember since the 70's.

Cheers, to Theresa for making our stay so comfortable and to Mel for keeping us plowed out each day!

Thanksgiving get away

  • 5 of 5

The house was very large and a comfortable fit for all 11 of our group. We cooked a full thanksgiving meal and the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and cooking supplies. The hot tub was well used and the location is perfect. Only a 10 minute walk to the resort and an amazing view over the mountain. The main floor is the perfect place for game nights and to cozy up on the big couch.

Schweitzer in March- Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we do a family/friends ski trip and this year we chose to ski Schweitzer. This was our first time choosing a ski-in/ski-out home and we loved the close access to the mountain and going home from lunch after a morning of skiing. The ski-in/ski-out access from this house wasn't the easiest or most direct, probably due to the lack of good snow, but we would definitely stay at this home again. We truly enjoyed the attention to detail of the amenities throughout the home, such as kleenex and each bathroom stocked with everything you would need. The layout of the house was also perfect for our large group. Thank you for allowing us to stay and enjoy this wonderful home!

Amazing Place for the Start of an Annual Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing time at Schweitzer and the house was a huge highlight, minus the foot of fresh overnight powder! We had 10 people in the house and it was the perfect size, everyone got a bed and the hot tub was great to relax after the ski day. The ski and board dry room was very useful and the large kitchen was great with all 10 of us. The location of the house, quality and amazing views really enhanced and made our trip one to remeber. This was our first ski trip as a group and we're now going to make it an annual trip!

The perfect home for the active family

  • 5 of 5

With the fuss ball table, ski and boot drying racks and porch with the hot tub separating 2 of the bedrooms from the rest of the house this is the perfect house for families with young children who are early risers from those in the family who prefer something more 'civilized' like say AFTER 6. We had our young grandchildren at the breakfast table never needing to shush anyone knowing the other family members in the separated bedrooms were unable to hear our voices.

The kitchen has everything any family could want from crock pot, to roasters to two full sets of dishes.

A very practical home with a very practical layout for the active family of many ages. Even our 5 year old granddaughter and two novice 'guests' could ski in and out. So great not to have to start a car in the morning, and everyone go out and return at their own pace.
