Winter Pro Tips
Maximize your Brundage experience and avoid frustration this winter season by reading our pro tips on parking, gear storage, and tailgating.
1. Gear Stashing & Storage
Bags, backpacks, and gear should be kept either in your vehicle, in one of the day lockers in the first level breezeway outside the lodge, or in the locker room. The locker room area is reserved for those who have leased season-long lockers only. If you don’t have a season locker, you’ll need to suit up and boot up at your vehicle.
2. Coolers & Homemade Lunches
Please keep coolers in your vehicle. If you aren’t purchasing food from one of Brundage’s restaurants, you may enjoy your home-brought goodies at any of our outdoor picnic areas. (Look for the signs outside Smoky’s and Main Street.) If that doesn’t sound fun enough, check out our awesome tailgating scene. Lower Lot is where the party’s at. Have lunch at your rig, and make some new friends! Our indoor seating space is very limited, and those seats are reserved for customers purchasing food and beverages.
Want to warm up and eat lunch in the lodge? Buy something from any of our delicious Brundage dining outlets, and help support our staff and resort operations. We appreciate your cooperation!
3. Tents, Grilling & Tailgating
Yes, yes & yes! Brundage visitors are known for being pros at tailgating and camping out, and we want to keep this culture alive! Maximize your parking lot fun, and please respect these tips and guidelines:
- Parking is first-come, first-served; please do not reserve parking space for others.
- Tents and other structures are allowed but must fit with your vehicle, within a single designated space. Don’t be that guy using a precious additional parking space for your tent or tailgate set up.
- The best tent zone is in the front row next to the cat track in the Lower (Centennial) Lot.
- Tents are allowed only on ungroomed, unplowed snow surfaces around the perimeter of the parking lots.

4. Clean & Green
Pack it in, pack it out. Help us protect our environment and our mountain by keeping it clean. Trash and recycling cans are available around the mountain.
5. Overnight Camping
Overnight camping is allowed in the Lower (Centennial) Lot during non-holiday periods. View our full Winter RV Camping policy here. Overnight (unattended) trailer parking is NOT allowed.
