Brundage Mountain placed second overall among nominees from across North America, with only Sunshine Village in Banff, Alberta Canada receiving more votes.
The finalists were nominated by industry experts, and the public had four full weeks to register votes for their favorites.
“The nature of this contest makes this award especially heart-warming,” said resort spokesperson, April Whitney. “Above all, we want to thank all of our supporters who participated in the voting. For a locally-owned resort like Brundage to beat out much larger and better-known contenders is truly amazing.”
“It shows how many skiers and riders truly love Brundage Mountain and the friendly, authentic, home grown experience we offer on the Best Snow in Idaho.”
Other finalists for the award included Copper Mountain, Kirkwood, Telluride, Lake Louise and SilverStar Mountain Resorts, among others. .
“It’s really exciting to see Brundage Mountain’s name right up there with these other industry leaders,” said General Manager, Ken Rider. “Most of these contenders have large footprints, ski-in/ski-out lodging and a broad range of amenities.”
“While lodging, more terrain, and enhanced amenities are all part of Brundage Mountain’s future plans, it’s incredible to get this kind of recognition for who we are now and for the authentic experience we are able to offer our guests as an independently owned resort,” added Rider.
