Schweitzer Mountain Resort will open for the season this Saturday, November 22 at 9am. The resort will operate Saturday and Sunday with 150 acres of open terrain.
Limited terrain will be available on Midway, with the Basin Express chair lift open. The Basin Express is scheduled to operate from 9am to 3:30pm during opening weekend.
“Even though we’re only opening with limited operations, we’re very excited to get the season started in the Inland Northwest,” said President/CEO Tom Chasse. “The fact that we have anything to offer is a direct result of pre-season brush cutting, our snowmaking capability, and our dedication to the skiers/boarders of the region.” Schweitzer will close down mid-week and then re-open on Friday, November 28th for the weekend. With new snow in the forecast over the weekend, they hope to expand the terrain and add the Musical Chairs lift for Thanksgiving weekend.
