Skiing in Idaho: A Family Tradition

Editors Note: A guest shares how skiing in Idaho became a family tradition

My husband and I were both raised in the very deep south and had limited exposure to snow, and literally no experience with snow deep enough to ski in. One day, several years ago, our close friends Idaho ski tripdecided they wanted to go skiing and invited us along for the trip. They have been skiing most of their lives, as they both grew up in Colorado and had only been in our area for a handful of years. Even those of us way down south know there is skiing in Colorado, but they wanted to ski in Idaho.

My husband and I made quite a few jokes about skiing on hills of mashed potatoes, not realizing there were ski areas in Idaho. We have now taken many Idaho ski trips together and I can confidently say there are numerous ski resorts, none of which makes their snow out of mashed potatoes.

The Brundage Mountain Resort has become one of our absolute favorite ski areas in Idaho. One of the great things, especially as our families have expanded, is the amazing room rates that are so close by. The town of McCall has several nationally recognized hotel chains that have very reasonable prices. Compared to many ski towns we have visited, the rates are unbelievable. The great rates have been one reason we have been able to continue our skiing traditions eveSkiing in Idahon in a less than perfect economy. Not only are the rooms affordable, but Brundage also has several ways to save on skiing as well. We can definitely afford this Idaho ski resort.

The important parts for those who are interested in Idaho ski resorts, however, are the mountain specifics of Brundage. After all what good are deals if it isn’t fun to ski in Idaho, right? The base elevation is about 5,800 feet and the summit elevation is just over 7,600 feet. There is a vertical drop of 1,800 feet and more than 40 trails and about 1,500 acres just perfect for skiing. There is plenty of room at Brundage for the entire family to have a great time.

As we have collectively moved from beginner status to skiers who are pretty good we have taken advantage of several of the ski classes the resort has to offer. Of course, at first, my husband and I took the very basic getting to know snow classes but later we moved on to some of the more advanced lessons for the more difficult runs and have even consulted with professional skiers for personalized tips. As our children have grown, we have used the daycare center available at the resort, and our son just recently decided he wanted to take a few snowboarding lessons. The husband and I are still trying to decide if that is something we should tackle for ourselves, but it is definitely an opportunity I’m happy our son wants to take advantage of.

We are certainly looking forward to another great annual Idaho family ski vacation!
