With the wintry conditions, Brundage Mountain got 3 inches of snow this morning and has announced it'll extend its “bonus” late-season weekend openings through May 15 - and maybe even further, if conditions warrant. “We have an extremely healthy snow base, and it actually continues to get deeper,” said resort spokeswoman April Russell. “We’ve watched over ten feet of snow fall in March and April and we’ve seen very little spring melt-off this year. We continue to get fresh snow every week and conditions have been stellar for our first two Bonus Weekends.”
The McCall ski resort now has 94 inches of snow at its base and 133 inches at the summit; there's more info here. The extension of skiing to May 15 would be a record; Brundage, which is marking its 50th season this year, had its latest closing ever in 2008 on May 10th.
