Schweitzer Torchlight Parade and Fireworks • 6 p.m.
It’s a Winter Carnival signature event where Schweitzer lights up the night with its annual torchlight parade and fireworks. The parade starts with a promenade of snowcats grooming their way down the J.R. run above the village, followed by a constellation of skier-powered torchlights weaving fire trails down the mountain; it all ends with a bang with a grand fireworks show over the village and the snow-covered slopes.
