Schweitzer Mountain Resort is pleased to announce that they will officially kick off the 2015/16 season on Friday, November 27. “We are thrilled to get the season started,” said Marketing Manager Dig Chrismer. “Everyone has been watching and waiting and now it’s time to get out there and make some turns!”

 “We began making snow earlier in the month, hoping we could help Mother Nature along” said Bill Williamson, Schweitzer’s Mountain Operations Director. “We have received about 12 inches of natural snowfall and with the cold temps last week, we were able to keep our snow machines turning, giving us another foot or so. It’s nice to see Midway in such great shape.”

 “There is snow in the forecast and the weekend looks fantastic with sunshine and cold temps,” added Chrismer. “Combine that with our $89 per night lodging special at the Selkirk Lodge and you’ve got a win-win. Perfect for a long holiday weekend with the family.”

 Schweitzer plans to operate the Basin Express Quad with limited operations on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3:30pm with adult full day lift tickets at $40. The mountain will close mid-week and reopen the following Friday. For more information about conditions and operations, please visit
