Brundage lays out resort upgrades ahead of winter season

Date:

Guests at Brundage Mountain will see some improvements during the 2022/23 winter season. These upgrades are a part of the mountain’s 10-year master plan, that BoiseDev reported on last year.

The Mountain Patrol Facility will be the new permanent home for Brundage Mountain’s Ski and Bike Patrol. The two-story 2,800 square foot building will have a first aid facility with additional bed space. It will sit next to the current Ski & Ride School at the base of the BlueBird Express. 

“We have both ambitious plans for the base area and high standards for the experience we offer our guests,” Brundage General Manager Ken Rider said. “We’re taking a lot of care to build the vision in thoughtful phases with minimal disruption of operations and the guest experience. This building allows us to transition some key services and make room for the next phases of construction on the new Mountain Adventure Center and lodge facilities.”

Brundage is also working to remodel what was once Meadow Valley’s High School in the early 1970s to new employee housing. When complete, the building will house up to 18 employees. Each room will have its own bathroom. There will also be a shared place for the kitchen, laundry, and common area. The building has a gymnasium that will be converted into a multi-purpose room. The news release said that Brundage plans to provide housing for 50-plus employees. 

On the mountain, this will be the last year guests can ride the Centennial Triple Chair, which was installed in 1990. In time for the 2023/24 season, the lift will be replaced with a new high-speed lift that will cut ride time from 14 to six minutes. 

BoiseDev reported last year that the updated master plan also includes a new lodge, homes at the base of the mountain, and terrain upgrades.
