Sandpoint, ID - Schweitzer Mountain Resort has announced the extension of the ski season one extra week, with the new closing date falling on Sunday, March 14. A combination of excellent snow and weather conditions has prompted the resort to offer this extra week of operation.
“This year conditions came together perfectly for us to operate for an additional week,” said Schweitzer President and CEO Tom Chasse. “We’re thrilled to offer this extended season to our guests.”
Even though the season has been prolonged, Tropical Daze, Schweitzer’s annual spring celebration, will stay on its original dates of Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7. Events for the weekend include the Rubber Ducky Derby, pond skimming in the village, the ever popular Downhill Dummy Derby on lower JR run, live music and a boom box party in Taps Lounge, family friendly pirate themed activities throughout the village and much more.
“Tropical Daze is a great way to celebrate the change in weather and welcome in spring skiing,” Chasse said.
