New Year's storm drops over a foot of snow on Brundage
A New Year's storm dropped over a foot of snow Wednesday on Brundage Mountain.

A winter snowstorm delivered a skiers dream to Brundage Mountain after dropping 12-14 inches of fresh snow on the mountain Tuesday evening to Wednesday morning.

Temperatures stayed in the mid to low 20's during this storm surge, so the quality of the snow is on par with the quantity.

"Powderhounds were up early to enjoy the fresh snow and an unexpected sun break before snow showers moved back in," the mountain said.

Snow depths now range from 40 to 53 inches at Brundage Mountain, which has 100 percent of its terrain open.

"This storm really delivered for Brundage Mountain," said April Whitney, resort spokesperson. "We're taking the fresh snow and exceptional conditions on New Years Day as a good omen for 2020."

Bogus Basin also got a little bit of the storm receiving 3 inches in the last 24 hours.
