"These new lifts carry out our mission to further Schweitzer as an active family resort," said CEO and president Tom Chasse, "It relieves the traffic pressure on the Great Escape Quad and provides more options for family skiing and those progressing from the beginner terrain on Musical Chairs." The two new lifts make up $6 million of the mountain's $10 million expansion project. Two million will go to new grooming and snowmaking equipment and another $2 million to utilities for future resort growth.
