The winter season has now closed. Stay tuned for summer operating information.

All Good.

True Bogus

You can see the iconic radio towers at Deer Point summit from throughout the Treasure Valley. Whether you’re commuting to work, picking up your kids from school, or visiting the area, you’ll probably see them every day. Bogus Basin isn’t just what you can see. It’s one of just a handful of non-profit recreation areas in the country. This means that 100% of the profits go back into equipment, facilities, outreach and more.

Help us grow and improve our winter operations, achieve our lofty goals for summertime operations, and expand our educational initiatives by making a 100% tax-deductible contribution.

Our Community Mountain

Bogus Basin is so much more than a ski area – it’s a year round destination for recreation and education. Countless kids have made their first-ever turns at Bogus Basin. Whether it’s with their families, friends, or through one of the many affordable school outreach programs, Bogus Basin exists to serve generations of Idahoans – from age 2 to 102.

For Good. For Real. For Everyone.

500+ seasonal employees hired for the 2019-20 winter season.
The health and wellness benefits of spending time in nature are more important than ever.
- Brad Wilson, General Manager
