“Scenic Chairlift ride”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Brundage resort was promoting the lift for Labor day weekend and I was very happy with the ride. As a non-skier it was a wonderful experience just to see the view! Nice and relaxing, quiet and beautiful!

“Mountain biking nirvana for the novice”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Great place to take the family or friends for an outdoor activity. No need to worry if you do not have a mountain bike you can rent them on the mountain. You take the chairlift up the mountain and ride down on one of the many trails (novice to expert). Loads of fun and spectacular views. For those that want the scenic views you can ride the chairlift both up and down the mountain. A don't miss attraction!

“Lift-assisted Perfection!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

We were visiting for a weekend, and I only had half an hour, so I drove up on the weekend before Independence Day and asked which trail would be best. I am not a real aggressive rider and my bike is for cross-country, so they suggested Elk Trail. The ride up was gorgeous, and I was a little hesitant since my only other experience on lift-assisted rides was not real good. I was immediately rewarded with some beautiful singletrack through alpine forest that swooped back and forth across the mountain. The perfect combination of rock, mud, curves, trees, water, bridges, and even a patch of snow!

Seriously, good snow without long lines. I love visiting this mountain on a good snow year. Hard to beat.

“Like Disneyland for Skiers”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Brundage is a great mountain. We're from Boise & normally ski Bogus but always enjoy a run up to Fundage. They do get the best snow in Idaho, at least southwest anyway, and are rarely crowded. The terrain is limited in expanse and difficulty but there is some excellent gladed tree skiing. Great skier focused management decisions too. They open early, often by Thanksgiving and stay open way late- waaaay later than Bogus. The Brundage Card deal they offer for multiple lift tickets is a great deal. They've really worked hard the last two years to make lift ticket prices more affordable. The renovated bar area is a nice plus as well. Now if they can just get the go ahead and funding to run a chair out to Sargent Mtn!
