Tamarack, Brundage begin snow making operations ahead of ski season
We're not telling you to get your skies out quite yet, but you should at least know where they're located in the garage.
Yup, we're inching closer to ski season here in Idaho.
The crews at Tamarack Ski Resort and Brundage Mountain have begun making snow. The team at Tamarack says it's converting as much as 800 gallons of water per minute into snow.
"We plan to make snow as conditions allow in anticipation of our projected opening date of Friday, December 8," said Tamarck GM Brad Larsen.
Tamarack already has 13 inches of snow at the base and almost 37 inches of snow at the 7,700-foot summit.
Over at Brundage, fall storms have dropped 19 inches of snow at 6,000 feet. When enough snow does hit the mountain, it will open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and then go to seven days a week by Dec. 8.
“Right now, we don’t have quite the snow we need to get the groomers on the mountain,” said April Whitney, resort spokesperson. “We’ve got snowguns set up at the base of Centennial and Bear Chair and also on Easy Street, so we’re doing what we can to supplement Mother Nature’s contributions.”
