Schweitzer keeps budget conscious skiers and riders having fun on the mountain with a variety of cool deals designed for both travelers and locals.

“It is important to offer ways for everyone to enjoy skiing and snowboarding, no matter what the economy is doing” said Tom Chasse, Schweitzer’s President and CEO.

Sunday through Friday Season Passes cost only $649 and there are no blackout periods or other restrictions. Escape Cards are another option for those who plan to visit Schweitzer multiple times this season.

The Escape Card lets guests ski or ride free on their first day; then they get $10 off lift ticket prices every other day with no limits on the number of days. Plus, Escape Card holders ski free from April 1, 2010 through the end of winter season. Escape cards are available online, in person, or by phone for $99. No blackout dates apply and they are valid for both full day and late arrival tickets.
