SANDPOINT — Schweitzer Mountain Resort is looking forward to its summer opening weekend and the resort’s 5th annual 7B Sunday on June 23.

“This is one of our favorite summer events at Schweitzer,” says the resort’s Marketing Manager Dig Chrismer. “Getting to share a day on the mountain with so many fantastic people is a great way to reconnect as a community.”

7B Sunday offers local artisans, food trucks, and associations based in Bonner County the opportunity to share their passions directly with Schweitzer’s guests that Sunday. “We know that the free chairlift ride is a big draw but it’s wonderful to see our friends taking time before or after heading to the summit to visit with over 30 businesses to learn about all the incredible things we have in Bonner County,” she adds.

Besides the free chairlift rides, Schweitzer will also have free live music from Monarch Mountain Band, The Groove Black, and Brendan Kelty Trio. Schweitzer’s village activities will be in full swing and Sky House at the summit will have a special lunch menu available. “The summit of Schweitzer isn’t reserved just for skiers and snowboarders,” continues Chrismer. “We encourage everyone to take advantage of the free chairlift ride to enjoy the views and see just how lucky we are to call this place home.”

Schweitzer’s summer operations will begin in earnest on Friday, June 21, 2019 with scenic foot passenger chairlift rides, lift served downhill mountain biking, zip line, trampoline jumper, climbing wall and sluice box open daily from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. until Sept. 2.
