Schweitzer’s village currently contains two condominium-hotels: The Selkirk Lodge and The White Pine Lodge. The Selkirk Lodge features traditional hotel-style rooms, some with Kitchenettes, and others with bunk beds, called “Family Suites.” The White Pine Lodge features one-, two-, and four-bedroom units with full kitchens and lofts. Hundreds of private residences and condominiums are also available throughout the lower and upper village. One day lodge, the Lakeview Lodge, houses ticket sales, the Season Pass Office, Guest Services, Taps (a full-service bar), the Lakeview Cafe (a cafeteria), Cabinet Mountain Coffee (a coffee shop), ski patrol and daycare services.
In the village, discussion has turned to an expansion of the White Pine Lodge with twenty to thirty new units on the south side of the building, near the current Lakeview Parking Lot. Such development would be subject to approval, but construction could begin, pending economic analysis, as early as spring 2013. As the resort approaches its fiftieth anniversary in December 2013, a range of expansion and improvement opportunities are assumed to be on the table.
On April 25, 1989, ground was broken for the construction of the gondola and base village, additional chairlifts, and other resort improvements. The newly renamed Silver Mountain opened for summer operations in June 1990 and for skiing that November.
Gondola and chairlift rides, mountain biking, hiking, and concerts at the high-mountain outdoor amphitheather (capacity: 2500) are the primary summer activities at Silver Mountain. The base village and gondola base are located less than a half-mile (800 m) from exit #49 of Interstate 90.
In June 1996, Silver Mountain was acquired by Eagle Crest Partners, a subsidiary of JELD-WEN Corporation.
A snow tubing park was constructed in the fall of 2006 at the site of the mountain amphitheater, which was relocated and expanded. An indoor water park (Silver Rapids) opened in May 2008. The excitement surrounding the great snow conditions and fabulous summer activities—biking, ATV riding, hiking, fishing, swimming, hunting, golf, bird watching—prompted economic growth. The economic downturn in 2008 has created opportunity again for investment.
