Current weather conditions
Weather conditions are serious business for us, and we take this information in like sieves. Our Davis remote wireless weather station is located at our summit lodge (el. 6,336 ft) and continually updates current weather and trends.

Take in the view of 175—or more—combined ski runs and the coolest snowmobile location ever! Located on the Great Escape quad chairlift terminal, Schweitzer’s summit cam shows the convenience of our location (red roof building) just steps away from the lift and Skyhouse restaurant. This is a fantastic webcam, and you’ll want to open the full screen version. After opening, use your mouse to drag and zoom this high-resolution panorama image. (The image updates every 10 min.)
Schweitzer also offers a webcam of the base area.
