Brundage Mountain adds bonus ski weekends through April 24

Brundage Mountain near McCall has added two bonus weekends to its skiing calendar with the possibility of more.

Brundage announced Tuesday that it will be open the weekends of April 16-17 and April 23-24. The ski area ends seven-day operations April 10.

“We have the deepest spring snowpack we’ve seen in several years,” Brundage communication manager April Whitney said in a press release. “It’s always our goal to offer our pass holders and guests the longest season possible, and we’re thrilled Mother Nature is helping us do that this year.”

Brundage still has 120 inches of snow at its summit and 65 inches at the base. Its Crazy Daze and pond skimming events are scheduled for April 9.

Tamarack Resort closes for the season Sunday.

Tubapalooza at Activity Barn

The Activity Barn in McCall will mark the end of its season with a Tubapalooza celebration Saturday. The tubing hill and rail park closes for the season after Sunday’s session (noon to 6 p.m.).

Tubapalooza runs from 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Prizes include season passes to Brundage Mountain and the Activity Barn. Participants must build person-powered, cardboard sleds capable of making the 600-foot run down the tubing hill. Prizes will be awarded for design and distance.

The $5 registration fee benefits the Brundage Mountain Lifetime Sports program that introduces schoolkids to alpine skiing and snowboarding.

The cardboard sled rally runs from 5 to 6 p.m. Discount tubing passes are available from 4 p.m. to close.
