Living as Big as All Outdoors
Living in Sandpoint is as big as the 86,000-acre Lake Pend Oreille, as high as its winding forest paths and as long as the alpine ski runs down the renowned Schweitzer Mountain. Outside magazine wrote that Sandpoint has “the most enviable outdoor recreation,” and the town lives true to that claim. Enthusiasts savor sailing and power boating, water skiing and swimming, fishing, hiking, golfing, mountain biking and horseback riding, skiing, snowboarding, skating and snowmobiling. Nature’s vast playground changes each season to unfold new adventures all year long. There is never a dull moment, and yet a tranquil respite is always just a moment away in this place as proudly uncrowded as it is unordinary.
