Opening Day

Opening for the season Saturday, November 25

Despite our best efforts in snowmaking over the last week, the warm and wet conditions of early November, combined with recent temperature fluctuations, have compelled us push back our Opening Day to Saturday, November 25. This extra day allows our dedicated team to enhance the skiing and riding experience by providing an additional 24 hours for snowmaking on Midway.   

Schweitzer will open for the 2023/24 winter season on Saturday, November 25 at 9:00am and will continue to operate daily, conditions permitting.
