CANCELED: Local Kids Learn to Ski for FREE

  •  March 25 - March 27

This program has been canceled for 2020 – we hope to bring it back next year. Thanks for understanding.

Kids ages 7-14 from Valley County, Adams County & Riggins School District can sign up for a full-day ski experience Wednesday, March 25 through Friday March 27, 2020.

This special Learn to Ski Deal is open to 25 youth per day and includes a 90 minute ski lesson, rental gear and a lift ticket for the day. It also includes a voucher for lunch. This program is sponsored by Midas Gold, so there is no charge to participants. Early sign up is suggested. Capacity is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Shuttle service will be available each day with stops in Donnelly and McCall:

Donnelly Elementary Departure: 8:00 am
Payette Lakes Middle School Departure: 8:30 am
Bus is scheduled to depart from the mountain between 3:30 pm – 3:45 pm each day.

Additional Shuttle service will be available on Thursday
with stops in Council and New Meadows:

Council High School Departure: 7:30 am

New Meadows School Departure: 8:15 am

Bus is scheduled to depart from the mountain between 3:30 pm – 3:45 pm each day.

Those providing their own transportation will need to check in at the mountain no later than 9 am for First-timer and beginner lessons (which begin promptly at 10 am). Intermediate and advanced lesson sessions will be offered at 11:30 sharp, but those participants can pick up their rental gear and take some warm-up runs prior to lesson time.

Each child can reserve one full-day session in advance. Those wishing to participate on more than one day will be put on a waiting list for additional days and will be notified about multiple-day availability at the end of each day. No shows without prior notification will be removed from waiting list and become ineligible to participate for the remainder of the week.

How to Sign Up for your FREE Spring Break Learn to Ski Session:

For Reservations call Brundage Mountain Ski & Ride School at 208-634-6631 and ask for the Midas Learn to Ski Program.

Level 1 – Never skied or only one time
Level 2 – Comfortable on the Bunny Hill (3-5 times skiing ever)
Level 3 – I can go to the top of the mountain but still snowplow
Level 4 – I can comfortably ski the whole mountain.
