The Schweitzer Prime Timers are a social group of enthusiastic skiers generally aged 50 and over who love to ski and enjoy the companionship of folks our age who are active and support the ski area:  Schweitzer Mountain Resort  (Sandpoint, Idaho). 

Here's a Link to current snow conditions!
Schweitzer Snow Report

Prime Timers meet every Thursday from January through the end of the season.  Meetings start at 3 pm in the Caribou Room of the Lakeview Lodge. The first meeting of each month is a business meeting followed by the usual social get-together. Dues are $35 per year per person. At the socials, a $5/person fee is charged at the door for room fee, drinks and snacks.  Special events are pre-paid by the members.
