Old School Rules: Where to Warm Up, Eat & Keep Your Stuff
As you’ve probably heard, ski areas across the country are asking guests to use their vehicles as their ‘base camp’ this season. We want to break down a few of the changes and rules to help you navigate this new set up – frustration free!
Stashing Your Stuff & Gearing Up:
Bags, backpacks and gear must be kept in one of two places this season: In your vehicle or in one of the new day lockers in the First Level breezeway outside the lodge. There is NO indoor space in the lodge for booting up and suiting up this year. That all needs to happen at your vehicle. The ‘locker room’ area is for those who have leased season-long lockers ONLY. For everyone else, booting up and suiting up happens in the parking lots. No exceptions.
COOLERS must be kept in your vehicle. Tables and seating around the lodge are reserved for THOSE PURCHASING FOOD FROM THE LODGE ONLY. If you brought food from home, you must consume that at your personal base camp, aka, your vehicle. Thanks in advance for your cooperation!
Your Parking Lot Setup:
Brundage Mountain’s visitors have a long-standing talent for creating a fun, festive vibe in the tailgate zone. And this is definitely the season to keep that tradition alive!
While we are encouraging our guests to use their vehicles as their ‘day lodge’, that doesn’t change the reality that parking lots get crowded over weekends and holidays. This is where the ‘Old School’ RULES come in to play. You can review all Parking Rules and Regulations here, but a few of the key points include:
- Do not reserve spaces for others; parking is first-come, first-served
- Tents and other structures must fit with your vehicle within a single designated space. You may NOT use a second space for your tent or tailgate set up.
- The best TENT ZONE is in the front row abutting the Cat Track in the Lower (Centennial) Lot
- Tents are allowed ONLY on ungroomed, unplowed snow surfaces around the perimeter of the parking lots.
Pack it in, pack it out. Any violation of the parking regulations can be cause for vehicle towing and removal from Brundage Mountain premises. You don’t want your car towed, we don’t want to tow your car, so please, just follow the rules so we can all enjoy that fun parking lot vibe!
And, for those who roll with their full setup self-contained, please remember that overnight camping is not allowed on holidays. Winter RV Camping RulesView All COVID-19 Changes here
