Brundage Mountain rises some 7,640 overlooking McCall and scenic Payette Lake; it is this mountain that became home to the ski resort which bears it’s name. In the late 1950’s former Olympic Ski Team Member Corey Engen was teaching locals to ski at Little Ski Hill when it was asked of him by local business giant J.R. Simplot “When are we going to get something bigger ?”. It was that question which lead to the exploration of the mountain as the resort destination it has become today. In 1961 the first trees were cleared and by the end of that summer two runs and the original lodge were completed. The progress continued as chair lifts were added and the lodge was expanded. In 1990 Brundage played home to the Idaho Winter Games. Today the resort offers 1,800 feet of vertical drop, 1,300 acres of lift-served terrain, and over 40 named trails!
Tamarack Resort is named for the signature grove of Tamarack trees that sits on the mountainside just north of the resort's entrance. Unlike other conifers, Tamarack's are not evergreen trees. Needles transform to a brilliant gold during the autumn months, fall off during the winter then sprout new needles in the spring. Tamarack Ski Resorts newest growth, as part of its Resort Master Plan, includes a total of 2,043 dwelling units (including single-family lots, town-homes and condominiums) ,a hotel and conference facilities. Discovery Square is a series of contemporary dome structures featuring professional concierge services, three restaurants and an après-ski pub, a specialty market and deli, a full-service ski and ride school, equipment rentals, club services, ski patrol, a children’s center, and emergency medical services. More than just a place to ski, Tamarack is quickly becoming a community all its own. However if it is the snowy slopes that call to you there’s no room for disappointment! Tamarack sports 2,800 feet of vertical drop, 2,100 acres of skiable terrain, 400 foot long super pipe, and 35 named runs!

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects. NAR is working on adding transcripts to all scripted video and audio content.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Most of NAR's video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device's volume controls and your media players' volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
