ROOTED IN IDAHO'S MOUNTAINS

On Thanksgiving Day in 1961, the legacy of Brundage Mountain Resort began. Born of humble beginnings and a unique partnership between three friends, the mountain served as a gathering place for the community. Today, that tradition continues. Brundage Mountain Resort continues to be independently owned and dedicated to building an accessible, inclusive outdoor recreation focused lifestyle in the mountains of Idaho.

A place for everyone in the community.

Preserving the Legacy

Outdoor recreation is our priority. As Brundage Mountain Resort continues to grow and evolve, the dedication to enhancing the mountain experience will remain the same. As an independently owned resort, our commitment to authentic, inclusive, accessible outdoor recreation is at the forefront of every decision.

Meet the Team

Brundage Mountain Resort is the vision of three friends with a shared passion for winter sports: Cory Engen, Warren Brown, and Jack Simplot. Since opening in 1961, the resort has been a family affair. From ownership to employees, every member of the Brundage team is part of the family and plays a critical role in the success of this special place.

Kyle Looper

Director of Real Estate Sales & Marketing

Growing up in Idaho, Kyle has dedicated a large portion of his life to the outdoors. Childhood was spent skiing at Brundage during the winter and hiking or boating during the summers. An active lifestyle has always been his passion. That pursuit led him off to a new set of mountains at Colorado State University and helped him kicked off an early career in the fitness industry with a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. While finishing his education at Boise State University, he worked as a Personal Trainer and began his mobile PT fitness platform.

Kyle leaned on his love for fitness, to explore a new opportunity within the industry. He took a position in equipment sales, working in a niche commercial fitness space. Kyle loved working with a variety of accounts in B2B sales, focusing on client interaction, planning, design, and installation of large commercial fitness facilities. The fast-paced industry kept him busy, but the client first mentality allowed him to grow the position and company in a unique path.

A fresh challenge and opportunity at Brundage Mountain Resort, lead him back to the Mountains, as he pivoted his sales and client experience, into a new position and new career path. As Director of Real Estate Sales at Brundage Mountain Resort, Kyle has been intimately involved in the early development planning at Brundage Mountain Resort. His understanding of the vision for Brundage Mountain and the masterplan, will help his clients find the right product and setting, that fulfills their goals of a dream resort property.

Having permanently moved to McCall and taking on a unique long-term project at Brundage, Kyle is lucky to share that journey with his wife Anna and two kids Adelyn 4 and Henry 2. Anna is currently putting her boarding days behind her and has finally seen the light. Adelyn is going into her second full year of skiing and may try to tackle the bluebird this year. Henry can’t wait to catch his big sister and find out what tater tot is all about. For work or play or both, all four plan to spend as much time as possible in the mountains.
