Nearly THREE Feet of Fresh Snow this Week = Full Time Operations Kick Off Friday, December 2

12/01/22

McCALL, ID(3:30 pm, Thursday, December 1, 2022) – Brundage Mountain Resort will open for full-time, seven day-a-week operations starting Friday, December 2. A series of snowstorms has dropped nearly three feet of fresh snow on the independently owned ski area since Monday.

The resort will kick off the season with the Bluebird Express, Centennial Triple and Easy Street Triple chairlifts in operation. Lifts will run daily from 9 am – 4 pm. The Brundage Mountain Ops Team is working hard across the mountain and will continue to groom more runs, open additional terrain and expand lift service as soon as conditions allow.

A SURGE OF SNOWFALL TO OPEN THE SEASON

As of 3:30 pm on Thursday, December 1, Brundage Mountain had received 31”-35” inches of fresh snow since Monday — more than a FOOT between Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon alone. The resort will open the season with snow depths ranging from 34” to 51”. Forecasters say another couple of inches of fresh snow is possible overnight, with skies expected to clear out by Friday morning.

Opening Day grooming operations are planned for several top to bottom runs along with the Easy Street beginner area. Friday’s visitors are encouraged to check the grooming report Friday morning for the latest updates on the grooming crew’s efforts to pack and groom the slopes coming out of this active storm cycle. Even with all this fresh snow, early season conditions exist and opening day grooming may be limited.

EARLY START TO FULL TIME OPERATIONS

This season’s December 2 opening will go down as one of the earliest in recent memory. Over the last 16 seasons, Brundage Mountain has opened by December 2 only one other time, which was in 2020.

“The storms that hit us over and over this week have transformed the mountain,” says Brundage Mountain General Manager, Ken Rider. “The Brundage team is excited for the chance to offer some high-quality skiing and riding so early in the season and this kind of base sets us up really nicely for the holidays.”

A wide range of mountain services will be available starting Friday, with the Guest Services office and Fall Line Rental and Tune shop open daily. The Brundage Snowsports School is taking reservations for lessons and food service will be available at the all-ages Smoky’s Bar & Grill.
