Yah, I know I checked schweitzer though they have a few. It's still a year away though so everything is still up in the air. I gotta say thanks though. You guys have been really helpful. If you find or know any other powder type resorts lemme know. Thats what I'm looking for, isn't everyone? I'll check those out. Thanks man.

Solitude is awesome. Its seriously just solitude. I usually only go there once or twice a season, since I have a pass to the canyons, but def a great resort. It's my dad's favorite by far, because of the endless tree runs and fresh snow you can hit all day long.

Pow Mow is a mom and pop place. I can't remember any hotel lodging and getting there without a rental car would be miserable.

There are shuttle services (especially during the winter) that take you from Spokane to Sandpoint. Once you're in Sandpoint getting around and to the mountain isn't hard. A shuttle runs all day long at the base of the mountain to take you to the slopes, and is about 3 miles from the middle of Sandpoint. During the winter I know their are shuttles that work with the hotels to get people from Sandpoint to the base, and then there is also a new local shuttle with one of the stops at the base.

ugh, I keep forgetting about transportation. Solitude will be a lot easier to get to and from. They also have a little village right at the bottom of the mountain, at least one or two hotels there. You could also get a solitude/brighton pass if you get bored of the resort. They are "attached."

There are hotels in Eden and a shuttle that runs from Eden to Pow Mow for 3 bucks. Does anyone know where I would put my board on that bus though? Do they have spots under the bus?

I'm sure that is the least of your worries, if it's a shuttle that runs to a ski resort they should have spots. Worst case scenario just sit on the aisle and lay it on the ground or something, you'll be fine

Also you should check out pow mows cat skiing at least one day while you're there. It's only like $10-$15 or something.
