The latest winter storm to hit Central Idaho brought more than a foot of snow to Brundage Mountain in the 24 hours between Monday morning and Tuesday morning and about 9 inches to nearby Tamarack. Brundage has seen more than two feet of fresh snow in the past five days, and the ski area’s snow base now ranges from 58 to 89 inches.
“There’s not a pitch or line on the mountain I’d hesitate to ski,” said resort spokesperson, April Russell. “Our slopes are completely buffed out top to bottom and the powder is incredible.”
Forecasters are predicting a significant amount of snow to hit the ski area over the next several days. An additional nine to 18 inches is predicted before the weekend. Tamarack is open Thursday through Sunday, so the powder will be piling up until skiers and boarders get a crack at it on Thursday.
