Schweitzer offers a stomping good time this Spring

Schweitzer offers a special winter experience all the way to Spring. This year the mountain celebrates suntans and corn snow with its most anticipated event of the season: The Stomp Games.

Schweitzer throws the Stomp Games on March 14th through 16th. The event moves into the national arena this year. For the first time ever, the winner of the men's pro skier slopestyle event will receive an invitation to be featured in the next Poor Boyz Productions film to be shot at Schweitzer this spring.

The Stomp Games features men's and women's divisions in Slopestyle, Rider X and Rail Jam events. All three events are open to pros and amateurs, skiers and snowboarders. The pro division offers a guaranteed $10,000 total cash purse.

After the on-snow action Dolman, Black and the Brain, a rock band featuring pro skier Micah Black, will play at Taps that night. The free show is open to people 21 and over.

What Schweitzer has always been about is great skiing and riding in its two massive bowls, breathtaking views and abundant glades. There's plenty of room on nearly 3,000 acres, and even more outstanding out of bounds terrain.

In the last year Schweitzer has poured in more than $10 million in upgrades and improvements, including two new lifts: the Basin Express, a high-speed detachable quad, and the Lakeview Triple.

This fall Skiing Magazine rated Schweitzer number 21 in its annual readers' survey of the top 25 ski resorts in North America. The same issue rated Schweitzer among the continent's top three hills for tree skiing. Off the back of the mountain, 2,000 acres of cat skiing await from the top of The Great Escape Quad.

It probably takes a week at Schweitzer to experience all the mountain has to offer. Check out the Slopeside Ski and Stay deals . Starting at only $64 per person, per night, you can stay in Schweitzer Village and get lift tickets for up to four people.

With all the all the great snow, sun and blue sky, this is the Spring to check out Schweitzer, soon to be one of your all-time favorite places to ski.
