Located near McCall, Idaho, Brundage Mountain is known for its bountiful snowfall relative to other areas in Idaho. With an annual average of 320 inches, Brundage outpaces better-known Sun Valley Resort with 220 inches annually. The ski area has a vertical drop of 1,800 feet. For the 2007-08 season, 160 acres of south-facing terrain were added in Lakeview Bowl. As its name suggests, the bowl offers views of Payette Lake.

Lodging is found in the town of McCall about 8 miles from the ski area and a two-hour drive from Boise, Idaho. Shore Lodge, one of just three Idaho resorts to earn AAA Four-Diamond status, is the premier place to stay in the town. Adjacent to The Cove spa, the 77-room lodge derives its name from its location on the south bank of Payette Lake. The lodge offers several ski-and-stay packages that include lift tickets at Brundage.
