Eye On Boise

A snowy success story...

It may not look much like May, but this was the scene on May 1st at Brundage Mountain Resort at McCall this year - a rare extension of the ski season into May, a powder day, and the capstone for a record revenue year for the resort. (Betsy Russell)

Here it is May 1st - and it was a powder day at Brundage! And snowing like mad on and off today, as hundreds of skiers turned out to enjoy midwinter fun in May (the powder was knee deep, and especially at the top, just really, really good, with fog drifting in and out, fine coverage, and untracked shots beckoning through the trees). It's only the second time in the McCall ski resort's history that it's been open in the month of May; it caps a ski season that, while a bit late in starting, was good for Idaho. I have to say for me, those excellent and consistent weekends on the slopes at Bogus Basin all through the legislative session kept me sane. And here's something we're not hearing a lot in these economic times: Brundage reports that this was its best season ever - not for overall snowfall, but for revenue.
