Lift construction underway at Schweitzer Mountain Resort

It’s almost fall, meaning winter will be here before we know it. With that in mind, Schweitzer Mountain Resort is busy preparing for ski season.

The resort installed one part of a lift on Thursday, designed to help get people up the mountain.

As part of the construction, crews took down the current lift and are replacing it with two new ones- dubbed the Cedar Park Express and the Colburn Triple.

Schweitzer Mountain Resort expects to have both lifts ready for full operation by the start of the 2019/2020 winter season, which begins November 29. .
