We’re heading into one of our most popular weekends of the year, which makes this the perfect time for an update on our slope conditions. The short version: They are REALLY good. The coveted good spring-like conditions, not the overly-sticky ‘oh-no!‘ kind of spring conditions. If you’re looking for a more in-depth assessment, we invite […]More
The 3-5 inches of fresh snow we got yesterday are still paying dividends today. Coverage is great from top to bottom, and groomed runs range from a carvable sugar-snow to a creamy-but-not-sticky hero consistency. We’ve even got snow still hanging in the trees this afternoon. It’s photographic proof of something the locals and our regular […]More
Brundage Mountain’s reliable snow base is attracting big events and extra business to the McCall area.
For the second year in a row, Brundage has picked up a four-day regional collegiate race after the original destinations were forced to cancel because of dwindling snow packs. This year’s USCSA Western Region Championship will bring approximately 140 collegiate racers and their support teams to the McCall area between Wednesday, February 18 and Saturday, February 21.
We had quite a wild ride this morning after Mother Nature threw a bit of a temper tantrum last night. Wild winds and a soaking rainstorm knocked out power on the mountain and dampened our hopes first thing this morning. We started the day on backup power and with the BlueBird Quad on ‘wind hold’.

During the second half of January, we heard many descriptive words regarding our groomed surfaces. Including, but not limited to: corn, hardpack, ice, chicken heads, gravel on a sidewalk, and ‘somewhere between chunky peanut butter and toothpaste’. While we have made the best of what mother nature gave us, we are thankful to see the […]More
We’ve been talking about Winter’s Return all week and that’s because it’s just getting sweeter and sweeter as the days go on. We got another 2-3 inches of fresh snow overnight, bringing our total since Sunday to 15 inches. Slopes are getting smoother with each new inch, and while I wouldn’t call the slopes ‘bottomless’ […]More
Winter has returned to the mountain. After two weeks with no new snow and temperatures reminding us of Spring, the forecast changed in our favor. We have received 6 inches of new snow in the last 24 hours with more in the forecast. The trees have been blanketed with snow and the slopes have seen […]More
Winter Carnival ALWAYS brings an added sense of fun and festivity to McCall and Brundage Mountain, and that’s never been MORE true than this year. Our community is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Winter Carnival and the whole town is stepping it up with bigger, better snow sculptures and extra flair. Part of OUR tradition […]More
We saw a glimmer of light amid the gray conditions today as local skiers and riders came together to ski and ride for a cure. It’s all part of our first Hope on the Slopes event. Individuals and teams of 4 to 10 participants compete for the most vertical feet skied and most donations received. A […]More
Did you make a New Years resolution this year? Research shows that more than 10% of us give up on our fitness resolutions by the third week in January. If your resolution has you in a rut, why not resolve to try something brand new this weekend to keep it fresh? We’ve got a list […]More
