Santa Comes to Bogus Basin

Looking for the best place to visit Santa in Boise? Bogus Basin HAS YOU COVERED!

With less than a week until Santa’s official departure from the North Pole, Mr. Claus made a special appearance to spread holiday cheer to skiers and boarders enjoying the sunny slopes at Bogus Basin on Sunday, December 17th. Bogus Basin is the best spot to visit Santa in Boise!

From split boards to new bindings, season passes to fresh snow – there was no shortage of holiday wishes or smiles on the mountain. Santa joined beginners for lift rides and turns on Coach Chairlift and greeted early-morning riders near Pioneer Lodge with candy canes for all. Bogus Basin is “the most wonderful place in the world,” said Mr. Claus.
