March into Monday!

The clouds dominated the summit today but the forecast is calling for sunshine tomorrow.  With all the snow that we received this last week, conditions on the mountain are still in great shape. Now that it's March, there aren't a ton of ski days left in the season so be sure to make some plans to get out on the mountain before it's too late. Also don't forget that Spring Fling Passes and Season Passes go on sale tonight at Midnight!

  • Lift Tickets are available. 
  • Twilight Skiing is sold out for the season.

Schweitzer supports the Panhandle Health District's extension of their mask mandate and facial coverings are required inside any building at Schweitzer, when you are waiting in the lift lines, on any bus or public transit, while in a lesson or attending any group event and when social distancing can't be maintained. We’ve been doing a great job of mitigating the spread of Covid-19 this winter so let’s keep masking up and ride out the season healthy and strong! Thanks, Schweitzer Family!
