Free lift tickets for beginners at Brundage

New skiers or snowboarders of any age can visit the ticket office to pick up a free Easy Street lift ticket any day of the season. Kids 6 and younger get free all-mountain lift tickets.

Brush is being cleared in the Easy Street area to add a groomed forest trail to the Big Easy terrain garden, which will give skiers a new way to get their first taste of tree skiing and make it easier to ski or ride from side runs back to the bottom of the lift.
