Community Day December 13 at Schweitzer 

$10 Lift Tickets Benefit Bonner Partners in Care & Community Cancer Services 

Sandpoint, ID (December 10, 2019) – The spirit of giving hits a fever pitch during December and Schweitzer Mountain Resort is proud to continue their dedication to two local Sandpoint area non-profits with their December tradition of  “Community Day” on Friday, December 13, 2019. 

The event began 12 years ago with “A Day for Heather” and has grown to become a major fundraising push for both Community Cancer Services and Bonner Partners in Care Clinic. “These two organizations do so much for our neighbors and friends who need assistance with basic medical care and support in their fight against cancer,” says Schweitzer Marketing Manager Dig Chrismer. “This is just a small way that we can help bring awareness and help others in our community.” 

Schweitzer will be offering full day lift tickets for a $10 donation with 100% of all ticket revenue going to both organizations. “Although limited, our snowmaking has allowed us to open as planned and we are working hard to open more terrain and lifts as snowfall allows,” adds Chrismer. “We are optimistic that the forecasted snow for Thursday will materialize and make it possible for us to expand operations for those participating in Community Day on Friday. We hope everyone, skiers and non-skiers alike, will help us to raise as much money as we can for these organizations.”

Lift tickets are available directly from both organizations, at Schweitzer’s lift ticket window on December 13 or can be purchased online at
