Brundage Mountain Resort Uphill Policy 2023/2024


General In-Season Uphill Policy

BMR’s Uphill Travel Policy allows access for uphill travelers outside of operational hours. BMR recognizes the enthusiasm of the public to use this area for different recreational activities and seeks to strike a balance between that desire and the significant safety concerns posed by uphill travel within ski area boundaries. 

  • Non–motorized Uphill Travel is authorized between 4:30pm – 9:00 am.
  • Check the Uphill travel page and snow report at brundage.com for open or closed status daily.
  • Motorized vehicles and equipment may be operating on roads and trails at any time. It is your responsibility to be aware and avoid this traffic and ensure you are visible.
  • Please Park in the NORTH rows of Upper MAIN parking lot. Please do not block the new road that runs along the perimeter of the Main parking lot.
  • Uphill information sign is on the north side of the Main parking lot between the real estate office and the lodge.
  • NO DOGS EVER! (sorry, it’s not the dogs, it’s the irresponsible owners and our motorized vehicles operating)
  • Reflective clothing and a headlamp are strongly recommended.
  • Utilize Approved Uphill Routes Only – (AS YOU ARE LOOKING UPHILL):
    • Left Groomed Edge of Lower/Upper Rodeo
    • Left Groomed Edge of North

  • All terrain North of North is off limits and subject to avalanche mitigation.
  • Failure to abide by all uphill travel policies can result in the loss of your Brundage skiing and snowboarding privileges, and/or prosecution with local authorities. Please be a good steward of this program for everyone.
  • Patrol services are not available outside our operating hours. In an emergency or injury, call 911.
  • Brundage reserves the right to restrict or close access and to modify this policy at any time.

Sargent’s Uphill Access Policy – Approved Devices: Skis, Splitboards, Skins, and Snowshoes ONLY

Access to Sargent’s within the Brundage special use permit runs along private property and through Brundage Mountain Resort’s current ski area and special use permit area. BE AWARE this access route takes you on shared-use roads, trails, and terrain where you are likely to encounter motorized vehicles which may or may not be affiliated with resort activities. BMR recognizes the enthusiasm of the public to use this area for different recreational activities and seeks to strike a balance between that desire and the significant safety concerns posed by uphill travel within the ski area permit boundaries. Brundage reserves the right to restrict or close access and to modify this policy at any time.

  • Check snow report daily prior to accessing Sargent’s – Route will be closed and signed when patrol avalanche mitigation is in progress. Obey uphill CLOSURE when in place.
  • Motorized vehicles and equipment may be operating on roads and trails at any time. It is your responsibility to be aware and avoid this traffic and ensure you are visible
  • Please Park in the NORTH rows of Upper MAIN parking lot. Please do not block the new road that runs along the perimeter of the Main parking lot.
  • Uphill information sign is located on the north side of the Main parking lot between the real estate office and the lodge.
  • DO NOT enter the ski area “patrolled boundary” from the Sargent’s access.
  • Utilize Approved Uphill Route Only – (DO NOT ACCESS SARGENT’S TERRAIN UP LOWER RODEO, NORTH BOUNDARY TRAIL OR THROUGH PRIVATE PROPERTY): (QR CODE TO MAP)
    • From the NORTHWEST corner of the Upper Parking Lot follow the route marked “UPHILL” (orange disks on bamboo) to “old” Goose Lake Road. DO NOT ENTER the private property to the north and east as you travel this route.
    • Get onto “old” Goose Lake Road and it will merge with “new” Goose Lake Road. This is a partially plowed shared use road. DO NOT ENTER the private property on the east side of Goose Lake Road.
    • Approx. ¼ mile up Goose Lake Road you will encounter the snowmobile trail from the Gordon C. Titus Lot where it merges with Goose Lake Road.
    • Continue up Goose Lake Road following the “UPHILL” signs. These signs are intended to minimize your travel on the shared-use road and keep travel out of private property.
  • Approved Devices: Skis, Splitboards, Skins, and Snowshoes ONLY
  • Failure to abide by all uphill travel policies can result in the loss of your Brundage skiing and snowboarding privileges, and/or prosecution with local authorities. Please be a good steward of this program for everyone.
  • Never travel alone. Everyone using the uphill route should be prepared with the appropriate clothing, gear, knowledge of self-rescue and education suitable for travel in the backcountry. If you do not possess all of these things you should not travel into this terrain.
  • Terrain accessed outside our “patrolled boundary” is accessed at your own risk. Avalanche mitigation, and terrain evaluation/conditions is not routinely conducted in this terrain. You will encounter unmarked obstacles and terrain features; variable natural conditions exist and may change at any time.
