SUMMER RESORTS — Free chairlift rides, barbecues, live music and other activities headline the Summer Celebration set for Saturday (June 30) to open the summer season at Schweitzer Mountain Resort.

However, with snow still covering the top of the mountain, bicycles are not yet being allowed to go up the lifts to ride the trail system.

The Great Escape Quad will run 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. for free rides to the 6,400-foot summit for views of Idaho, Washington, Montana and Canada.

Schweitzer will be operating the new zip line, air jumper, climbing wall and sluice box.

Info: (208) 255-3081.
