There are many reasons to love midweek skiing and riding on the mountain, from enjoying wide open runs, and sleeping in, to the corduroy that lasts longer on your favorite runs. We added the popular Midweek Season Pass option back in 2016, to make riding at Bogus Basin more accessible and affordable for those who prefer to ride Monday through Friday and avoid popular holiday periods. The Midweek Season Pass is the perfect offering for someone who works weekends or prefers to ride at quieter times on the mountain.

The Mountain to Yourself

Is there anything better than a fresh run waiting for just you and your crew? Midweek skiers and riders get to enjoy the first tracks on corduroy and pow, with fewer people alongside them. Even better, those corduroy strands and open fields of powder stick around a little longer when fewer people are riding them! On average, midweek visitation on the mountain is 47% less than on weekends and holidays, making the mountain feel that much bigger. Plus, parking is plentiful midweek.
