Several inches of new snow this week will put a fresh topping on the slopes for our final day of the 2011/2012 ski season.

We received 3-6 inches of fresh snow across the mountain early this week and we’re proud to offer the longest spring season in Southern Idaho.

The snow base currently ranges from approximately 60” to 100”, thanks in part to the 69” of snow that fell during the month of March.

“Our slopes still look terrific and coverage is impressive,” said resort spokesperson, April Russell. “We’re proud to offer the longest spring season in Southern Idaho.”

Brundage Mountain plans to run 3 of 5 chairlifts, from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. 1,340 of the mountain’s 1,500 acres will be open Saturday.

Partly sunny skies are forecast for Saturday. Unseasonably warm temperatures are expected Saturday night and there’s a chance of rain on Sunday, so we are no longer planning to operate on Sunday, April 22.

Food and Beverage service will be available in the Main Lodge and in Smoky’s Bar & Grill. The mid-mountain Bear’s Den will be closed.

The Brundage Mountain Snowsports school will offer lessons. Reservations are highly recommended for the Brundage Bears Childrens program and Brundage Mountain Day Care services.

Keeping with tradition, visitors are invited to meet at the main lodge at 1:00 pm Saturday, April 21 to be part of the resort’s commemorative “Closing Day” group photograph.

The end of the ski season also marks the final weeks of Brundage Mountain’s Early Season Pass Sale. Visitors can save up to $150 if they purchase their 2012/13 Winter Season Pass by April 30th. Purchase on-line here.
