If you’ve been eyeing Schweitzer snowfall reports lately, you’re not alone. Fortunately, signs are looking good for a November opening if favorable weather conditions hold up.
According to resort marketing manager Dig Chrismer, a Wednesday snowfall added about three inches of snow to the mountain. That adds up to an approximate total of five inches, with more expected in the coming days.
The real question is whether Schweitzer will be open the day after Thanksgiving, a target the resort has met the past several years. According to Chrismer, there’s no telling yet, but signs are positive. If projected snowfalls occur according to predictions and temperatures are cold enough to deploy snow-making machines, residents may be hitting the slopes over the long holiday weekend. [CR]
