Slopeside Bargains 

Brundage Mountain in McCall is ramping up not only for another season of powder but for its golden anniversary. This year marks the resort's 50th season, and managers are sharing the love with patrons. Besides a newly expanded and remodeled second story of the main lodge, there are a couple of deals so good, they're worth marking on your calendar.

No. 1: Beginning on Friday, Nov. 4, Brundage will sell a limited number of season passes that include not only a season's worth of lift rides but a full day of snow cat skiing, a two-hour lesson and a full-day performance rental for--drum roll, please--$489. For those keeping score, that's the price of a regular season pass but a value of $876.

When they say "limited number," they're serious. Only 50 of the uber passes will be sold and when they're gone, they're gone.

No. 2: Between Monday, Dec. 12, and Thursday, Dec. 15, Brundage will hold Golden Ticket days, allowing two adults to get two full-day passes for $50.

No. 3: Families can also get in on the season-pass mania on Nov. 4, when they can purchase season passes (still for $489) that include three full-day visits to the Brundage Bears children's program.

No. 4: On Wednesday, Dec. 28, the resort will host Light Up The Night II, a torchlight parade and fireworks show preceded by live music and followed by an optional sit-down dinner.

"We really want people to be able to celebrate our 50th anniversary with us," said April Russell, Brundage spokeswoman.

Sun Valley Resort has been riding the anniversary bandwagon for the last year, but the resort's official 75th anniversary is on Wednesday, Dec. 21, an occasion that will be marked with numerous celebrations.

The resort is also offering some attention-grabbing early season deals, made possible, in part, by the area's impressive snow-making capacity. With its eyes firmly on a Thanksgiving weekend opening, Sun Valley has a Thanksgiving Package, which includes four nights of lodging beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 23, a three-of-four-day lift ticket, and a Thanksgiving dinner buffet for $297-$305 per person.

Also starting on Nov. 23 and running through Tuesday, Dec. 20, the Pre-Holiday Package offers one night's lodging and a lift ticket for $79 per person double occupancy or $123 single occupancy.
