Schweitzer Mountain Resort opened Sky House, a new $3.8 million summit lodge with 360-degree views in midDecember. The two-story, 9,000-square-foot facility features The Nest restaurant and full-service bar along with Red Hawk café, offering indoor and outdoor seating for up to 180. Sky House also can accom - modate private events, large meetings and retreats. Peter Tobin, head chef of Sky House, is a certified executive chef from The Culinary Institute of America and a certified culi - nary educator. The Nest’s menu features small-plate options like tantalizing sausage slid - ers, roasted curried cauliflower, raclette potatoes, clam chowder and roasted chicken wings.
The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.
