The Dirt: Schweitzer ski resort finishing $5 million summit lodge project

Schweitzer Mountain Resort plans to complete its $5 million summit lodge in December. Construction began July 2015 at the top of the Great Escape Quad lift.

The 9,000-square-foot, two-story structure will include a full-service restaurant and bar, lodge areas, group function space, and a base for the ski patrol.

Schweitzer has spent more than $900,000 toward other improvements, such as a food and beverage technology system, upgrades for the ski rental fleet and purchase of grooming equipment.

For summer mountain biking at the ski area, the resort partnered with the city of Sandpoint, the Selkirk Recreation District and private landowners to connect the recently developed Highpoint Trail with existing trails.

The new 2.8-mile trail departs from the top of Schweitzer and connects for a ride to the valley floor. It’s part of a larger multiyear plan for the Watershed Crest Trail, an eventual 30-mile loop.

Schweitzer’s property management group also is doing $75,000 in upgrades to 70 units it manages. Separately, Copper Basin and Idagon Design Build are constructing home projects at Schweitzer.
