When you think of North Idaho’s Schweitzer Mountain, your mind likely drifts to visions of powdery snow and steep slopes. But now that it’s officially summer, it’s time to transform that vision and appreciate the mountain’s abundance of summer beauty. Schweitzer’s summer season kicks off this weekend, offering live music throughout the day by local bands Harold’s IGA and the Blackberry Bushes Stringband. Toss off your flip-flops and enjoy free rides up the Great Escape Quad, Schweitzer’s picturesque lift, with biking and hiking trails at the top. Down at the Village, peruse arts and crafts vendors, play some tennis or ascend a climbing wall.
