Skiers, don’t put your gear away yet. There’s still plenty of winter to be had at Schweitzer Mountain Resort.
With over 365 inches of snowfall this year, Schweitzer has announced they will extend operations until April 15.
“Longer, sunnier days are making an appearance in the region and with a solid snowpack still in the mountains, conditions for spring skiing and riding are fantastic,” said Schweitzer marketing manager Dig Chrismer.
The current snowpack at the summit is 125 inches, with long range forecasts calling for slightly colder temperatures and slightly above average precipitation through the end of the season.
