Bogus Basin Announces Bonus Weekend Opening

Blue Oval With Bogus Basin In The Center

April 19, 2017 (BOISE, ID)– Skiers and boarders will have one last opportunity to hit the slopes at Bogus Basin. The nonprofit recreation area announced today that the Superior Chairlift (#3) will operate from 9:00am-4:30pm on Saturday and Sunday for a bonus weekend. The Superior Chairlift services intermediate and advanced terrain only– there will be no beginner or low-intermediate terrain accessible to guests.

“We are excited to make this happen as a special thank you to our season pass holders and the community for a great season,” said Brad Wilson, General Manager. “The coverage and spring skiing conditions remain very good on the backside of the mountain.”

On Monday, mountain personnel began clearing snow out of the base area, the first step toward a major enhancement project that will include installation of a mountain coaster, outdoor seating plaza, climbing wall, summer tubing, and other activities. Many of the amenities are scheduled to open to the community at a July 75th Anniversary Summer Kickoff Celebration.
