Wow, what a lake

Sandpoint's crown jewel, Lake Pend Oreille, is a major attraction in August. Check out the many ways to enjoy it:
- Beach it at family-friendly City Beach, located right in town. Or swim at parks around the lake.
- Take a cruise with Lake Pend Oreille Cruises.
- Get in the driver's seat with boat rentals, from paddleboards and kayaks to jet skis and speed boats to leisurely pontoon craft. Good choices: Action Water Sports, Sandpoint Marine & Motor Sports, Bottle Bay Resort & Marina and A Day on the Lake rentals.
- Dip a line, catch a fish. Guide yourself, or take advantage of local knowledge with Go Fish! Charters or others.

Calling all swimmers!

Still time to register for big event

This Saturday, Aug. 3, hundreds of swimmers will take to the refreshing waters of Lake Pend Oreille to take part in the 1.76-mile Long Bridge Swim. This is the 25th year of the favorite summertime event, which takes place in the waters just below the pedestrian Long Bridge - making it a perfect spectator sport, as well! There will not be registration on race day, so either go online beforehand to, or show up for the last chance to register in person Friday, Aug. 2, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Sandpoint High School.

Schweitzer's main summer event nearly here

Fall Fest features beer, music, mountain fun

It's the biggest event of summer at Schweitzer Mountain Resort - yep, we're talking about Fall Fest - and it's coming up quickly, Aug. 30-Sept. 2. Enjoy live music featuring 10 bands over 4 days, with 80 beers, ciders, seltzers, and a handful of wines to taste. Bring lawn chairs or blankets and make a day - or weekend! - of it (lodging is filling up fast - click to check availability). Kids can check out the soda station, where they can mix their own flavors, plus there will be arts and crafts vendors throughout the village and a food court nearby. This is also the final weekend of summer operations - the Great Escape Quad chairlift will be open for sightseeing, hiking, mountain biking, and to visit the Sky House for a late summer meal!
