Brundage sets bonus weekends, free skiing

Brundage Mountain Resort at McCall announced that it will add bonus weekends at least through April 22 and it will offer free lift tickets for everyone Monday, April 2, through Friday, April 6.

A snowy March has given Brundage Mountain what it needs to extend its winter season, said April Russell, resort spokesperson.

The resort plans to be open seven days a week through April 8, and said it will offer its first two “Bonus Weekends” of the season, Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, and Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22, conditions permitting.

Regular lift-ticket pricing will be in effect on Saturday, April 7 and Sunday, April 8. Lift tickets will be discounted by $10 for Bonus Weekends.

Snow conditions at Brundage Mountain are excellent, and the snow base is the deepest it has been all season, she said.

The base area has a compacted base depth of 72 inches and the summit base measures 114 inches. The resort has had 65 inches of snow so far this month, and up to a foot of fresh snow is forecast over the next 24 hours.
