Who Owns Brundage Mountain Resort?

Brundage Mountain Resort is a ski and snowboard destination located in McCall, Idaho. The resort offers over 1,500 acres of terrain spread across seven mountain faces, with an additional 200 acres of backcountry skiing and snowboarding.

With exceptional powder and steeps, the resort is a favorite among advanced skiers and snowboarders. But who owns Brundage Mountain Resort?

Brundage Mountain Resort has been owned and operated by the same family since its founding in 1963. The original owner was John Eagan, who purchased the land from the U.S. Forest Service for $5,000. Eagan then developed the area with chairlifts, trails, and lodges to create what is now known as Brundage Mountain Resort.

Eagan passed away in 1981, but his legacy lives on through his son Jim Eagan, who took over ownership of the resort upon his father’s death. Under Jim’s leadership Brundage Mountain Resort underwent a massive expansion with multiple new lifts being added to the resort’s ski area as well as many improvements being made to existing infrastructure and facilities.

Jim retired from owning Brundage Mountain Resort in 2018 after 37 years at the helm of the family-owned business. His son Mike Eagan assumed ownership of Brundage Mountain Resort upon his father’s retirement and continues to operate it under the same values that have been instilled since its founding: providing an exceptional skiing experience in a safe and friendly environment for all ages and abilities.


Brundage Mountain Resort has been owned by three generations of the Eagan family since its founding in 1963 by John Eagan. Jim Eagan took over ownership upon his father’s passing before passing it on to his son Mike Eagan who currently owns and operates Brundage Mountain Resort today.
