Schweitzer Mountain announces opening day of 2016/2017 season

SANDPOINT, Idaho --- Schweitzer Mountain Resort has announced the start of their 2016/2017 season will start on Dec. 2.

"Thanks to some perfect temps for snowmaking partnered with a great base of natural snowfall, we are ready to get this season started," said Marketing Manager Dig Chrismer.

The resort plans on daily operations starting Friday with Musical Chairs and the Basin Express Quad running from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

"The forecast looks good for additional snowfall in the coming weeks, making it possible to add more lifts and terrain as we can," said Chrismer. "All in all, with the long range La Nina forecast, the opening of the Sky House at the summit and the approaching Christmas holidays, there’s so much to be excited about at Schweitzer right now. We're really looking forward to an amazing 2016/17 season," he added.
