Even with the lack of snow and warmer temperatures this season, Schweitzer Mountain Resort are not quite ready to let Mother Nature have complete control with the amount of snow on their slopes.
“Our season isn’t over,” said Tom Chasse, CEO of Schweitzer Mountain Resort. “We’ve seen some challenging weather conditions this season but with the temps below freezing the last few nights, we can make our own snow. Our snow making system has made it possible for us to open early the last 3 seasons and now, we plan to make snow as long as the temperatures allow us or until Mother Nature picks up the slack. We are going to work with all the tools we have to keep good coverage in the base area until our closing date in early April.”
