Schweitzer Mountain Resort, in Sandpoint, announced today that it will open two chairlifts for skiing this weekend.

The Basin Express and Musical Chairs lifts will be open Saturday and Sunday. The resort will close during the week, then may reopen next Friday if weather cooperates, the resort said in a news release.
