WNlooperBrundage Mountain will kick off the 2013/14 winter season with some exciting changes on the slopes, in the lodge and in the resort’s leadership.

Brundage welcomed President and Managing Director, Bob Looper in July. Looper has served on the Brundage Mountain Company Board of Directors since 2008 and previously spent nine years on the Board of Directors at Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area. Looper also has an extensive background in development, management and entrepreneurship. You can read more about his plans for Brundage here.

Skiers and riders tracking pre-season snowfall will be the first to notice big changes right here at www.brundage.com.

The snow report and home pages are being redesigned to better feature the site’s most popular content.

A more mobile-friendly responsive design will improve site-wide performance on all types of digital devices. We’d love to hear what you think of the new site, please feel free to leave a comment below.

WNbrushcutEarly season skiers and riders will appreciate Brundage Mountain’s on-going brush cutting efforts.

This year’s phase targeted the lower half of the front side runs, with significant trimming performed on Main Street, Lower Alpine, Griz, Badger, Red Fox, Bear, Lower 45th Parallel, Sensation, Celebration and Lower Temptation.

Trimmed slopes can be packed and groomed with less pre-season snowfall than untrimmed slopes, creating earlier prospects for opening day.

WNKickbackBrundage is relocating its main terrain park to Kickback and changing its approach to park construction.

The Kickback Rail Park will focus exclusively on box and rail features.

The elevation and aspect of the new location should allow features to be built earlier in the snow season than at the prior location and putting the park on the south side of the mountain will provide more sunshine and better photo ops for freestyle riders.

Inside the lodge, guests will notice some major changes to the third floor cafeteria, which will now be known as the Main Street Cafe. The serving space is being redesigned to provide a more convenient experience and reduce wait time on busy days. An expanded prep area will also allow our cafeteria to offer some fresh new menu items.

On the second floor, new ventilation equipment and updated fixtures will improve the sensory experience for those using the women’s bathroom.

We’ve got some other projects underway which we’ll be featuring on this blog in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more exciting news!
