Kids of all ages were invited to test their skills against our O-Wimp-Ic Obstacle Course. From tunnels, to horseshoes to fishing (and more) BIG talent was on display from these little competitors. (more…)

It looks like that’s what our visitors will be getting this weekend. The weather pattern is expected to shift, almost magically, overnight Saturday night. (Check out the forecast here.)
That means skiers and riders will get to experience one ‘spring skiing’ day and, potentially, one powder day, all in the same weekend. (more…)
The surface snow starts cold and firm, and as the day progresses, it loosens and softens until it reaches the saturation of creamy mashed potatoes. In this cycle, the window of opportunity for some perfect Spring-like snow is often hard to judge.
A few ways to ensure the best bang at any time of day is to follow a simple process.
It’s no secret that I have a deep and abiding love for Brundage Mountain.
There’s nothing quite like the passion one feels during that initial honeymoon period right after you fall for someone, or something. (We’ll get back to my love story in a moment).
I strive to be grateful for the blessings in my life, but I’ve recently realized that after nine years here, I sometimes take for granted the special things we experience day-in and day-out.
Fortunately, my work puts me square in the path of adventurous and insightful souls who are often experiencing Idaho, McCall and Brundage Mountain for the very first time.
Through their eyes and their published works, I am able to recall the feelings I had when I experienced my first winter at Brundage Mountain. I thought I would share some of those first impressions here and see if it might re-kindle some of your romance with the mountains. (more…)
The giant 50’ x 50’ airbag will be in the Brundage Mountain base area March 22, 23, and 24 to kick off our local Spring Break period.
Some mention busy work schedules. Others point to competing social commitments. Then there are the people who claim they didn’t come because they didn’t think the snow would be very good.
Well, I have news for you. The snow is FANTASTIC. We’ve had 5″ of fresh snow accumulate this week and cold overnight temperatures to preserve it.
And it’s not just the groomed runs that are in great shape. Off-trail areas are surprisingly satisfying today. What’s more, we’re expecting great conditions to last through the weekend. (more…)
Why do you ski? Inspired by this video shared from onthesnow.com
we decided to ask people who ski Brundage, what draws them to the slopes. Here are a few of those answers.
The Idaho Mountain Freeride Series was back at Brundage this weekend for our second slopestyle competition of the season.
Here are some photo highlights from today’s action.
Even the most dedicated ski bums don’t often get the chance to break new ground. A new chairlift can afford the opportunity to be the ‘first’ on an out-of-the-way run. Hearty skiers can hike their way into virgin terrain and claim their ‘first’ tracks on a slope.
So we’re extra excited to announce a ‘first’ for our backcountry SnowCat program. Our first-ever marriage proposal (and acceptance) happened yesterday on the top of Granite Mountain!
What makes this ‘first’ even more special is that the couple has been part of the Brundage Mountain family for several years. (more…)
Our snow depths are looking solid, with 63 inches at the base area and 94 inches at the summit.
You may be thinking, “It is the end of February, the downhill slide to Spring. So much for the snow.” But nothing could be further from the truth.
Statistically speaking, March is one of the snowiest months on our beautiful mountain.
That’s why we have high hopes for many more powder days this season.
