The rider-owned-and-operated Coeur d'Alene Cycling & Fitness keeps cyclists and winter-sports enthusiasts moving smoothly in all seasons with complete bike and ski tune-ups. The shop's skilled technicians treat mountain planks to a thorough spiff up during ski tune-ups, as they stone-grind and sand bases and remove nicks, gouges, and unsightly third skis with a minor base restoration. A generous application of hot wax provides smooth sliding, and a side and base edging sharpens skis for maximum slope-shredding prowess.
Terra Sports’ two-wheeling gurus construct a cycling community around an experienced knowledge base and expert bike services.

Randy Henry’s Dynamic Golf's aboutGolf PGA Tour simulator lets golf enthusiasts sharpen their skills in the middle of the most brutal lightning storm. Links lovers can practice swinging, slicing, and putting on their choice of 55 courses, including top-ranked courses such as Pebble Beach and Pinehurst, within the digitally rendered, high-definition world of a 180-degree panoramic screen. A new-fangled sensor array analyzes the weight and rotation of real-life swings by taking video and digitizing golf-orb statistics such as speed and rifle spin, allowing swingers to mathematically improve their whiffs. Once the ball is airborne, invisible cherubs transport the dimpled globe from this dimension into a parallel universe that is safely contained within the simulator by an ancient pact between Scotland Yard and the denizens of a second Earth.
From its roost beside the lake of the same name, The Coeur d'Alene Resort towers over more than just water. It also dominates the skyline and presents views of the region's evergreen-coated mountains and valleys.

During the warm seasons, lake cruises take passengers on quick tours and kayak rentals let them see the waterways at their own paces. Guided bike tours and hikes explore the natural beauty of the mountainous surroundings, and snowshoes and snowmobiles conquer icier paths.

There, players have to land their shots on an island green?150 yards from the shore and only accessible by boat or catapult.
An onsite spa fuels days of relaxation with treatments that incorporate lake algae as well as the scents of cedar and spruce for distinctively local interpretations of familiar services.
