Brundage Mountain Opens Full Time Operations Starting Tuesday, December 14
A series of winter storms has laid down a base at Brundage Mountain and the McCall, Idaho ski resort will open for seven-day-a-week operations starting Tuesday, December 14.
More than two FEET of snow has accumulated at the Brundage base area since Friday, allowing the Mountain Operations team to prep the slopes for the start of the 2021/22 Winter ski season.
Brundage is planning to open three chairlifts at 9 am Tuesday – the Easy Street Triple, Bear Chair Triple and the BlueBird Express – with top-to-bottom skiing and riding on at least one groomed run.
Early season conditions exist, and for opening day, all-mountain riding off Bluebird is for advanced and expert skiers and riders only. Beginners and novice riders will find great options on the lower lifts and Brundage will expand grooming, terrain and lift operations as conditions permit.
“We’re happy that this storm brought the goods for us to open full time for top-to-bottom skiing and riding,” said resort General Manager, Ken Rider. “After such a dry lead-up to the season, it’s also exciting to see significant amounts of new snow in the forecast right through the weekend and beyond.”View Snow Totals & Forecast Here
Brundage Mountain will be open to all types of season pass and ticket holders. Those purchasing day tickets will want to pre-purchase online for the best prices.
(Tickets for Winter Break are already available for pre-purchase and Brundage recommends buying those in advance in case quantities become limited during the busy holiday period.)
The Guest Services office, Rental Shop, Retail and Ski and Ride School will all open for the season tomorrow. Smoky’s Bar & Grill will be open from 11 am – 3 pm daily.
“We really want to thank our team their incredible efforts over the last 48 hours,” says Rider. “This snow came in all at once and the grooming crew, lift ops and ski patrol have worked tirelessly to get the mountain open.”
Additional runs, terrain and facilities will open as conditions warrant.
