Beat the Heat by Heading for the Hills
Aug 1, 2012


July 2012 was one of the hottest on record, and according to the experts, August will bring us more of the same.

Here at Brundage Mountain we want to help you beat the heat while still enjoying some of your favorite outdoor activities.

Here are our TOP THREE suggestions to cool off with a cool vibe.

1. Hit a MOUNTAIN Music Festival

No such worries for this weekend's IdahoDown Music Festival, where high temperatures are expected to top out at a comfortable 81 degrees.

That means you can kick off your shoes and do some dancing without wilting in the sunshine. The best part? Camping is free with your concert ticket, and tickets are just $30 per day or $50 for the whole weekend. Full details are available here.

2. Let Nature Be Your Air Conditioner

When temperatures peak, it's important to keep your core body temperature low. Instead of blasting the AC, try splashing in the gorgeous whitewater of Central Idaho.  


Starting August 7th, Brundage Whitewater Adventures will be slashing the price of a half-day raft trip on the lower Salmon River to just $55 for adults and $45 for youth 12 & under. That's a $14 discount off regular prices. Make your reservation now to make sure you don't miss out on this amazing value!

 3. Harness Some Wind Power

Take a scenic ride to the summit and you're likely to feel a gentle summer breeze add to the refreshing sensation.  


For those looking for a little more action, we have 20+ miles of hand-built single track, PLUS a brand new Four-Cross Course. Check out the goods here.
