Owner description: Located high in the mountains of Central Idaho, Brundage Mountain is best known for its powder-packed glades and luxuriously wide groomed runs. Blessed with over 320 inches of snowfall annually, Brundage has an undisputed reputation for the Best Snow in Idaho™. 1,500 acres of terrain and 1,800 feet of vertical make Brundage Mountain a mid-sized resort that 'skis big'.

If you are done with the lines at the major ski resorts you should check out Brundage Mountain in McCall, Idaho!! Excellent snow, small lines and a wonderful resort town that isn't impressed with itself.
Regular people and no ski divas present, just good family fun.

“Love it”
Reviewed April 18, 2011

Brundage received 7" of light, dry powder the night before (Monday night) our first day of skiing here. When we got to the parking lot at 8:45 am there were less than 100 cars there! Needless to say, we had fresh turns for the day. When we were on the groomers they were topped with just 2-3 inches of fresh powder...was turning on untouched corduroy with a powder topper late into the day...was getting off-piste, knee high, fresh turns all day!

Some of the base lifties had a little attitude (who knew you could get that vibe in the 15 seconds of interaction?) but, other than that, the resort is a great little mountain that doesn't get many crowds. Everyone else was very friendly and nice!!

I would take note that the Centennial Lift is apparently closed during the week...without this lift you have to take a much shorter lift then ski down to the Bluebird Express. Kind of a PITA but, when you realize there are NO CROWDS during the week (even on a powder day) here it kind of makes sense that they don't have this open.

It doesn't have the vertical or high speed lifts that other areas have but it's a great time and they get more snow than most Idaho mountains!!
