Safety at Brundage Mountain

Brundage Mountain is committed to your safety. Our ski patrol members are trained to national standards and ski and patrol the trails and terrain at Brundage every day of the week.

In addition, our ski patrol enforces the Code of Responsibility, which is posted below as well as on the mountain. Powder skiers and Terrain Park users should also check the links at the bottom of this page for additional safety information.

Please note: Snow Bikes are not allowed at Brundage Mountain. (Fat Tire bikes are not allowed during Winter operations)

NEW: We have a winch cat operating on our slopes from the time lifts close in the evening until they re-open in the morning. Please read more about this new hazard if you or anyone you know plans to use our slopes during off-hours.

Know the Code

Skiing and snowboarding at Brundage Mountain can be enjoyed in many ways. You may see people using alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, and other specialized equipment, such as that used by the disabled. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers and riders the responsibility for a great skiing experience.

Your Responsibility Code

  • Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  • You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  • Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
