What's New at Brundage Mountain for Winter 2020-21
Brundage Mountain Resort is focusing its off-season investments and projects on improvements that will enhance the guest experience and promote safety in the era of COVID-19 and beyond.
New Stand-alone Restroom Facility – a new restroom facility located on the edge of the main (upper) parking lot provides a convenient pit stop accessed from the outdoors. The new facility, with running water, contains two flush toilets on the women’s side and a flush toilet and two urinals on the men’s side. This new addition should help relieve pressure on the restrooms inside the main lodge and allow those waiting to use the restroom to do so in the fresh air rather than indoors.
Food & Beverage Enhancements – two new outdoor grill locations will give guests more lunch options on the second and third floors of the lodge. New picnic tables and propane heaters will expand outdoor seating to offset limits on indoor seating. All food venues will be open this winter and are being reconfigured with a focus on grab and go items and counter service to lessen time spent indoors.
New Goose Creek Parking lot – a new, two-acre parking lot is under construction near the current entrance to Brundage Mountain. This overflow lot will hold approximately 150 additional vehicles. It will be open weekends and holidays and be serviced by the parking lot shuttle that runs continuously on peak days.
New Shuttle from McCall to Brundage – The free shuttle service between McCall and Brundage will feature a brand new 33 passenger shuttle, providing double the seating capacity of the previous van. This service is offered seven days a week during holidays, and Thursdays through Mondays during the rest of peak season through a partnership with Mountain Community Transit/Treasure Valley Transit and the City of McCall
One-Touch Locker System – 147 new self-pay lockers will be located in the second-floor breezeway on the west side of the main lodge. A self-pay station allows users to walk up, pay with a credit card, stash your gear and go. The new lockers range in size, with a limited number of larger lockers available for overnight ski storage.
Upgraded Webcam Network – Know before you go! The Brundage webcam network now includes three live-streaming webcams, so skiers and riders arriving after lifts open can check out how many people are on the slopes in their favorite zones. The streaming cameras overlook the top of Centennial and Lakeview, the Top of the BlueBird Express and the Top of the Bear Chair. Views rotate automatically, so viewers can now check out the stunning scenery as well as the action on the slopes.
Just for Fun – Clean Lines: Annual fall brush cutting continues, with a focus on mowing lower-mountain runs to maximize early season snowfall. Significant brush cutting is planned for several other areas. Stay tuned for details!
