About Us

Today’s Schweitzer

In 2006, Schweitzer’s board of directors hired Tom Chasse as President and CEO of Schweitzer Mountain Resort. Chasse has been instrumental in the continued development of Schweitzer’s ski terrain and infrastructure. 

2007: Two new chairlifts, the Lakeview Triple and the Basin Express Quad, were added to the resort’s lift system

2008: A cutting edge snowmaking system was installed and completed in 2009.

2015: Construction began on the 9,000 sq ft  summit lodge, Sky House. The building  was opened to the public in December of 2016 and is home to The Nest restaurant and bar, The Red Hawk cafeteria, ski patrol dispatch, and on-mountain restrooms.

2019: Schweitzer installed of two new lifts in The Outback. The high-speed detachable quad, Cedar Park Express, and the fixed grip triple, Colburn Triple, began service during the 2019/20 winter season.  The resort also added an additional 7 new runs and increased graded terrain accessed by those lifts.

2019: Construction began on a 30-unit boutique hotel in Schweitzer’s Village. The hotel is expected to be completed in the winter of 2021/22.

The resort is committed to being the best ski destination in the Pacific Northwest and is working diligently to improve the experience both on and off mountain for their guests, passholders, and employees. Schweitzer crafted a strategic master plan in 2017, outlining future expansion and development for the next 5 – 10 years. For more details, please visit our master plan page on the website.
