January 30, 2018 (BOISE, ID)– This Friday, February 2nd will be a special day at Bogus Basin. Each year Bogus Basin has extended deeply discounted tickets to members of the 366th Fighter Wing. This has been a tradition for more than a decade to show appreciation to the Airmen and their families for their commitment and service. The Air Force uses this opportunity as one of four Comprehensive Airman Fitness Days planned for the year.

“We look forward to hosting these dedicated Airmen for a well-deserved day of fun and activity on the mountain,” said Bogus Basin General Manager, Brad Wilson. “We are honored to continue this tradition and to extend our appreciation to everyone from the 366th Fighter Wing for their commitment and their service.” The wing population consists of more than 4,8000 military and civilian members and about 5,200 family members. Currently, more than 180 Airmen from Mountain Home Air Force Base are deployed around the world.

Activities will include tubing, skiing, snowboarding, and riding the Glade Runner mountain coaster.
