Downtown events, Halloween frights, fall colors ... it's a festive season!

Downtown work ending

Sandpoint celebrates with two October events!

Whew, this past summer was certainly a dusty one in downtown Sandpoint with street remodels, utility work, and new landscaping in full swing. That pic above shows how downtown will be looking once all the work is accomplished - pretty fine! - but two events start the celebrating this month. The Fall for Sandpoint shopping event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, features special sales, in-store games and prizes, kids' activities, and more. Plus, a portion of the day's proceeds benefits local nonprofits. Next up, the Dust Off Downtown party Thursday, Oct. 25, features live music, kids' activities, and a shopping happy hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sandpoint Shopping District Facebook page.

Fall in full color

Slow down and enjoy the sights

Northern Idaho is breathtaking in October, when tamaracks and aspens transform the forests and mountains into a stunning showpiece of color. Enjoy the sights via car along the Pend Oreille Scenic Byway which meanders eastward to the Montana state line along Lake Pend Oreille. Another option is to make the drive up to Schweitzer Mountain Resort and take in the expansive vistas along the road and up at the resort itself. And finally, get out for a walk along Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail - you'll be happy you did!

Frights and delights

New Schweitzer Magazine is here ... and it's adorable

Read about resort's Avalanche Rescue Dog program + more

Snow is already starting to dust Schweitzer Mountain Resort - so get yourself prepped for the wintertime fun to come with the new 2018/2019 Schweitzer Magazine. It's loaded with interesting articles including the resort's avalanche rescue dog program, a mouthwatering taste tour of Schweitzer's restaurants, a feature on the U.S.'s top female teen telemark racer (she's from Sandpoint!), plus more facts about our high-mountain playground. Copies of Schweitzer Magazine are available 'round town, mailed to season passholders, or view the digital version now». And think snow!
