McCall, ID – Brundage Mountain is bustling with activity as crews work to prepare the central Idaho ski and snowboard resort for its 50th season of winter operations. In addition to several projects to improve the mountain experience for 2010-11, Brundage Mountain is offering “50 Days of Deals” this fall.nChildren and families will find a brand new Children’s Terrain Garden this winter located near the Kid’s Center on Easy Street. The Terrain Garden will focus on challenging the skills of beginner skiers and riders without the intimidation of steeper hills and larger park features. Gentle roll-overs, plateaus and smaller quarter-pipe features will be designed to build skills.
Advanced skiers and riders will have more room to explore after a tree-thinning project that took place on 68 acres of skiable terrain. That opens up more space in the glades in selected off-trail areas from NW Passage to the bottom of the Bear Chair. In addition, an ongoing brush clearing project will create more spacious lines in Dixie, Meadow Bowl, Mexico and more.
Brundage Mountain has also invested in a brand new fleet of ski and snowboard rental gear featuring the latest Rossignol Amptek technology. Rockered tips and tails make turning easy, while the innovative camber underfoot creates powerful edging ability. This allows skiers and snowboarders to progress to the next level more easily, whether they are beginners or experienced riders.
A new “Plan Your Trip” link right on the homepage of the Brundage Mountain website takes browsers straight to the Brundage Mountain Vacation Planners site, where local people are online to answer questions and help with any trip planning needs.
All winter long, Brundage Mountain will be celebrating its 50th Season with a flurry of events and special deals. Highlights include a special “50 Days of Deals” event from Oct. 20-Dec. 8, featuring savings on Season Passes, Select Cards and Gift Cards.
Brundage Mountain will also host a free, holiday “Light Up the Night” Party on Dec. 29, featuring live music, a torchlight parade and an après-ski fireworks show on the mountain.
