Bogus Basin’s Passport Program for BEGINNER skiers and snowboarders is an award-winning, nationally recognized program at an unbeatable price! During the session, qualified instructors introduce skiers and riders to a new snow sport in a friendly, well-paced learning environment.
This program is an introductory program and is geared toward new and novice skiers. Mouse Tracks students are grouped into very small classes of similar ability levels. Chair riding assistance is provided for Mouse Tracks students. This means that during the lesson instructors and other ski school staff will ride up the chairlift with your child.
The Mouse House, located on the first floor of the J.R. Simplot Lodge, is a special place at Bogus Basin. Filled with a friendly staff, fun instructors, and new friends, the Mogul Mouse program is poised to bring out the fun in winter sports. The Mogul Mouse program is designed specifically for children ages 4-6 years old. This program is for all ability skiers, from children who have never skied before, to those that are ready to master the mountain.
The Mountain Explorer Program includes four half day lessons. See Session dates and times for schedule. Classes meet on the flats in front of the J.R. Simplot lodge. Look for signs indicating ski or snowboard, and ability zone.
