342 W. Shingle Mill Rd., Sandpoint, Idaho (MLS#20120444) My new listing at 342 W. Shingle Mill Rd (MLS#20120444) comes complete with a family of moose.  While out taking pictures on a sunny day, I asked the owner what kind of wildlife they see on their 20 acres.  Before long, I got a close-up of...

Sandpoint's Selle Valley is known for it's overpowering views of Schweitzer Mountain Resort to the west and the overwhelming view of the Cabinet Mountains to the east (encompassing over 94,000 acres and protected by the Wilderness Act of 1964). The massive Schweitzer Bowls continually lo...

I have a snow globe on my desk.  When I shake it and the dust settles, it reveals a big question mark.  That's my answer when my customers ask me to predict the future mortgage rates this summer.  Based upon the graph below (supplied by our "good friend" Freddie Mac), it looks like...

If you remember North Lake Tahoe 20 years ago, you will appreciate Sandpoint today.  These photos from yesterday say it all.  The "immaculate Sandpoint/Schweitzer Winter" continues.  In fact, today I rode my bike 20 miles in the bright/warm sunshine...this marks the 12th straight month ...

Well, this came as a bit of a surprise.  I love it here in Sandpoint but...#1 ski town in the U.S.?  The folks at Rand McNally really do love us.  I guess I can just sit back now and fend off the onslaught of buyers hoping to be a part of this bonanza.  I'm thinking that may not happen but ou...

If you look around the ski world, races and events are being canceled on a regular basis.  Snow coverage is shockingly low and, in Europe, almost non-existent.  Schweitzer Mountain is the exception and I, for one, am happy to ride this wave as long as I can.  As of this post, Schweitzer has the 9...

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! It has been a special year so far at Schweitzer Mountain.  While so many ski areas are struggling with some pretty strange weather, Schweitzer has been blessed with some massive early storms.  See you on the slopes! Thank you to the entire Activerain community!...

Skiing Schweitzer Mountain today gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "It's Lonely On Top".  I had to take a few iphone shots of the "crowds"...or lack thereof.  No lift lines and, usually, nobody even within sight on the lifts.  By the way, the skiing is phenominal......

Seriously.  This is one of the Rockies most phenominal settings.   The Ridge At Schweitzer Mountain is located 1 mile up the mountain from Schweitzer Mountain Resort.  I'm incredibly biased, I admit...but you just can't do better than Schweitzer.  Today is December first...I've alread...

What better time to inaugurate my presence in the new AR Sunrises & Sunsets Group than my current trip to Kyoto City, Japan.  The photo below (taken today - Sunday, November 13) looks out over the top of Ginkakuji Temple, a zen temple established in 1482. Just to provide proof that this photo...
