^Bluebird Express Lift, Main Street Trail at Brundage Mountain Resort
Brundage Mountain Resort (Idaho) is offering a full slate of activities for guests to enjoy this upcoming weekend, including skiing and snowboarding!
Yeah, that’s right folks. Brundage still has a decent enough snowpack up-high and is offering a terrain park for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy this coming weekend.
Brundage made the announcement in a blog post. You can read the full thing by clicking the link.
Keep reading for an excerpt about this weekend’s festivities.
“Scenic Chairlift rides will be offered starting Friday, June 17, but Opening Weekend visitors will also have the opportunity to ski or snowboard off the summit, for some off-piste late spring skiing turns. A small terrain park will also be open on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19.
Spring storms have left us with a solid snowpack on the top of the mountain,” says Brundage Mountain General Manager, Ken Rider. “While we’re working to clear and prep mountain biking and hiking trails from the base area up, we’ll be prepping four or five terrain park features near the summit.”
Guests who are interested in skiing or boarding can ride the BlueBird Express to the summit on foot and put their skis or boards on at the top. The terrain park will be located just north of the BlueBird lift, at the very top of the Main Street run. There is not continuous snow from top to bottom, so skiers and riders will be allowed to download the BlueBird Express when they finish riding.
2022-23 Winter Season Passholders and 2022 Summer Bike Park Passholders can ride the lift and park features at no additional charge. Adult tickets are available for $20 and youth are $15.
“It’s extremely rare to get the chance to make turns or hit rails in June, so while it’s not how we were expecting to open summer season, we’re pretty stoked about it,” added Rider.”
Mountain biking trails on Brundage’s lower trail will be open as well.
Sounds like it’s going to be an awesome weekend up at Brundage Mountain Resort. I’m jealous of all of you that will be sliding on snow in the middle of June.
Enjoy it while you can!
