Brundage opens for skiing on Friday

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.
