About Ski the Northwest Rockies

Ski The Northwest Rockies is a non-profit association representing the Inland Northwest snowsports industry, this includes four ski areas along with snowsport industry retailers. Our mission is to raise awareness of Inland Northwest Skiing and Snowboarding opportunities. 

We are surrounded by beautiful country with clean air, broad horizons and deep snow. The mountains create a natural skyline where the ridges and peaks of the Northwest Rockies spill west from the Continental Divide.

Spokane and Coeur d’Alene are surrounded by four unique alpine resorts inside of 200 square miles, averaging over 300 inches of snowfall a season. Each unique hill offers a rich variety of skiing and riding, spectacular scenery and good old-fashioned, down-to-earth hospitality.
