Brundage focuses on breast-cancer awareness for Diva Day

The ski area’s Sixth Annual Diva Day is Saturday, Feb. 1, and Brundage Mountain at McCall will offer $25 lift tickets and a day of activities for women 18 and older. The event includes free chair massages, après ski yoga practice and a happy hour, spa package giveaways and live music from Stoneseed. Brundage is partnering with Susan G. Komen of Idaho, and the foundation is donating four grand prizes to the women who find pink ribbons hidden around the mountain. Brundage will donate a portion of its happy hour proceeds to the foundation. St. Luke’s of McCall will also be on site talking about women’s health, active lifestyles and passing out sunscreen.
