Found on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille, Dover Bay Resort is the perfect place to stay for anyone looking to enjoy an unforgettable summer escape. Our Northern Idaho resort is close to countless activities and attractions, including Schweitzer Mountain. While this spot is known for its world-class skiing, there’s just as much fun to be had when the snow melts.

Dover Bay Resort is the ideal home base for anyone looking to visit this popular attraction. You’ll be able to easily enjoy all the mountain has to offer without having to deal with its large crowds during all hours of your vacation.

What to Do on a Day Trip to Schweitzer 

Once the mountain opens up for its summer season, there’s no shortage of things to do

  • Feel the thrill of riding down the side of the mountain on two wheels. Schweitzer has over 40 miles of mountain biking trails that offer sweeping views of Idaho scenery.
  • For a more laid-back bike ride, go for a hosted e-bike tour on the 10-12 mile cross-country mountain bike loop.
  • Experience sweeping views on a scenic chairlift ride. You’ll be able to take in panoramic views of Lake Pend Oreille, Washington, Montana, and Canada.
  • Book your spot on a horseback ride with Schweitzer’s local partner, Mountain Horse Adventures. Your journey will start at Schweitzer village and head out to some incredible locations.
  • Spend time exploring the old-growth forests and wildflower-filled mountainside meadows on one of the picturesque hiking trails. With hikes as short as .3 miles, there’s something for everyone.

After a fun-filled day on the mountain, return to your Dover Bay resort to unwind away from the crowds.
