Brundage Mountain Resort has announced that it will open for skiing on Friday, with three of its five chairs running and lift tickets discounted to $36. The McCall ski resort said, “Favorable temperatures have allowed us to pack our snow base and open three of our five chairlifts. … Encouraging signs in the forecast lead us to believe we may be able to open more terrain very soon.” You can read the resort’s full announcement here.
In a rarity this year, Bogus Basin Ski Resort at Boise opened Dec. 8, two weeks earlier than the usually-snowier Brundage. Bogus continues to operate its front-side lifts. Tamarack Ski Resort opened Dec. 13; Sun Valley Resort, with its plentiful snow-making, opened for the Thanksgiving holiday.
