Brundage Ski Getaways
Brundage Mountain is definitely one of those underrated resorts. The skiing is pleasant and uncrowded, with occasional challenging drops, but mostly cruisers. The snow has a reputation for being some of the lightest powder in the Pacific Northwest. And the views of Payette Lake, Salmon River Mountains, Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness and the Seven Devils towering over Hells Canyon are simply amazing.
Intermediates find this mountain a real delight. Advanced and expert skiers and riders should head into the trees or chutes of the Hidden Valley area, or check out the new terrain in Lakeview Bowl. The addition of two new chairlifts in 2007 more than doubles the resort's uphill capacity and opens up 160 acres of gladed tree skiing. Payette Lake sparkles below as skiers explore the spectacular new terrain in the Lakeview Bowl. The Bear Chair, also new in 2007, connects Brundage Mountain's drive-up Kid's Center to more beginner and advanced beginner terrain than ever before.
The mountain offers guided backcountry skiing via snowcat in a permit area of more than 19,000 acres in the Payette National Forest.
