Recent snowfall is encouraging area skiers to haul up to the mountains to get in some runs before the 2009-10 season shuts down.

Both Schweitzer Mountain Resort and Silver Mountain Ski Resort will have skiing this weekend.

Schweitzer, in Sandpoint, will offer runs all day Saturday and Sunday.

Silver Mountain, in Kellogg, will only offer skiing on Saturday. The other area resorts at 49 Degrees North and Mount Spokane have closed.

John Williams, a spokesman for Silver Mountain, said conditions might warrant keeping the resort open on Saturday April 17.

For certain, Silver's final ski day will be April 24. That's the date of the "lead man" competition, combining downhill, biking and running as an alternative to Coeur d'Alene's Ironman event later this year.
