We went yesterday (March 18), had a good time but frankly, given the price and the fact of daylight savings time, I was astonished to learn of the 3:30 pm closing time. Should have been at least an hour longer; there was plenty of daylight and we had plenty of energy. I understand why the back side needs to close earlier than the front side, but Schweitzer has major lifts on the front side that would be easy run for another hour in the spring. Funny thing, one of them is used for night skiing earlier in the season and stays open late! But not in the spring. I felt a bit cheated.
