But, we can only live in the past for so long, and with our 50th Anniversary on the horizon, we're looking ahead to the next snow season.

Five NEW Things to Try For the First Time

A New Treat for Your Taste Budssmokyspubsign  


We're remodeling and expanding the second floor of the main lodge to add more seating to our popular Smoky's Pub, and to enlarge Smoky's Kitchen!  


The expansion will create 100 additional seats and allow us to offer a fresh, tasty menu designed by our new Food and Beverage Director. The changes will also improve traffic flow to the restrooms and give us options for future improvements on the third floor.  




2.  Get Your Groove On


The Best Snow in Idaho isn't just about the powder. Our commitment to snow quality has earned us a reputation for top-notch grooming, too. This season, we've invested more than $500,000 to upgrade our grooming fleet with the addition of two brand-new PistenBully 400s. So even if you're a die-hard powder fan, be sure to lay down some tracks on the groomers to see the groovy new surface these mega machines are making.

Bear Mascot4.  Befriend a Bear

A friendly new face will be part of our Brundage Bears Kids Program and your children can help welcome him to the family. Our brand new mascot is geared up with skis and goggles, but he's missing one important thing: a name!

We're inviting children ages 4-11 to help us name our soon-to-be-famous bear. Simply go to, print out a blank contest sheet, creatively name and color our furry Brundage Bear, and send it back via e-mail or snail mail by December 1. The lucky winner will receive their choice of a Full-Day Bears lesson package or a Youth Season Pass.
