EXCLUSIVE

Brundage Mountain Resort near McCall in Adams County is known for its fantastic snow and great skiing.  Soon, the ski area could be part of a year-round destination resort if plans are fully realized.

The 336 acre chunk of land which surrounds the resort’s base area is on the market – with an asking price of $9.8 million.

The land was formerly part of the Payette National Forest, and is approved for as many as 900 housing units, many with ski-in, ski-out access.  The owners built up the large parcel over 15 years as part of land swaps with the government, according to a sales flier obtained by BoiseDev.com.

“Development studies have been completed regarding, water, sewer, access, easements, and proposed housing product to be integrated with minimal impact to the pristine surroundings while adding hospitality and resort type amenities for vacationers to enjoy,” the flier noted.

In 2009, Brundage Mountain resort worked to gain approval on the so-called Brundage Mountain Village project for part of the land now for sale, but after winning approval the plan stalled. The application noted any project could take as long as 20 years to build out

Any buyer would have five years to build out the planned unit development as part of an agreement with Adams County.
