Brundage Mountain Resort has teamed up with the Shore Lodge to offer several lodging and lift ticket packages. The McCall lodge also added a new first tracks program available only to lodging guests.

The Shore Lodge, located on Payette Lake, has added a new perk this winter for lodging guests-a first tracks program one day per week. A complimentary shuttle runs daily from the lodge to Brundage, which is located five miles away. Those staying at the lodge over Saturday night can catch the first tracks shuttle Sunday mornings. One shuttle to the resort departs early to load the lifts 15 minutes prior to the public. A ski instructor and Shore Lodge representative escort the group in getting first tracks on the mountain. The free first tracks program is available to the first 11 guests who sign up.

The lodge also offers packages just for skiers and snowboarders. The packages, with rates based on double occupancy, are available through March 30; however, blackout dates may apply. Inquire about these when booking the packages.

A package that bundles one night of accommodations and one day of skiing costs $94.50 per person. A two-night stay combined with two days of lift tickets costs $174.50 per person.

Those paying for three nights of lodging and two days of lift tickets can add on a fourth night's stay for free. The package, which costs $224.50 per person, allows time for adding on other winter activities in the area, including ice skating, snow tubing, elk viewing, and snowmobiling.
