Hours of Operation

Uphill Traffic Policy

Due to the current stay-at-home order, Bogus Basin discourages uphill travel and traffic.

Safety Considerations:

Due to maintenance and operational requirements such as grooming, snowmaking, construction, avalanche mitigation, special events to name a few. To prevent the public from hazards that may present themselves from time to time, Bogus Basin has the authority to restrict or deny uphill traffic to the public, with Forest Service pre-approval, to perform any or all of these actions as deemed reasonable by the ski area. Areas subject to these potential hazards will be signed as closed at the uphill access points closing those areas.

Rules of the Up:

Bogus Basin Recreation Area allows uphill access via skinning during the winter operating season at restricted times and designated areas. For the safety of everyone at Bogus Basin, anyone participating in these activities must adhere to the following guidelines and accept the risks associated with uphill travel.

1. All trails and terrain parks are closed outside of operational hours.

2. Know and follow ‘Your Responsibility Code’ at all times.

3. Before and after daylight hours, a headlamp or flashlight is required and reflective clothing is advised at all hours.

4. No dogs are allowed on the mountain.

5. Overnight stays on the mountain are Not Permitted!

6. Bogus Basin reserves the right to close uphill traffic at any time.

7. NO SLEDDING IS ALLOWED ON ANY PART OF BOGUS BASIN RECREATION AREA AT ANY TIME.

8. The mountain is closed and swept clear of all guests and staff at the end of each operating day and during emergencies.

9. If your presence on-mountain property presents a hazard or the mountain staff feels that you are impeding the operations of the mountain, you may be directed to utilize a different location. You must follow such direction or you will be asked to leave the premises

10. Avoid all grooming operations and snowmobiles, snowmaking equipment winch cat and their cables. The cable between the anchor and the cat can be difficult to see and maybe under the snow or crossing overruns. These cables can stretch for thousands of feet and can move very quickly without notice.
-Possible winched runs Wildcat, Upper Paradise, Lower Nugget, Second Chance, Night Hawk, Triumph, War Eagle, Lando’s Mojo and Widowmaker.

11. STAY OFF OF TRAILS WHEN SNOWMAKING IS IN PROGRESS. These trails will have 480-volt electrical cords and high-pressure water hoses, and at times they may be just beneath the surface of the snow. They may also have very icy conditions, particularly near the snow guns. Seek an alternate route if you see any indication of snow machines, electrical cords, or hoses.
– Do not enter areas where machinery is in use
– The majority of machinery operates after hours, pay close attention at all times.

Recommended Uphill In-Bound Travel Routes:

A) Shafer Butte Route: This route departs from the Pioneer Lodge up Lodge Cat track to hiker’s left of Triumph and then on up the cat track to Shafer Butte. This route is restricted during operations until about 2:00 am due to the winching of ski runs. In the mornings please be transitioning into downhill mode fifteen minutes before opening, 8:45 am on weekends and holidays and 9:45 am Monday through Friday.

B) Deer Point Route: this route is accessed from the base of Coach Run up to Sourdough and then onto the Upper Ridge, topping out at Deer Point. Please stay to hiker’s right on this path to avoid grooming/snowmaking equipment. This route is restricted during operations so please be transitioning into downhill mode fifteen minutes before opening, 8:45 am on weekends and holidays and 9:45 am Monday through Friday.

C) Up-Hill-Skin-Track: The up-hill route has been cleaned up, and is now ready for skinning! This route will deliver you to the underside of the Deer Point towers. It departs from between the base of coach run and the road, it travels along the inside edge of the southern ski area boundary and is reflected on the map. This route is open during all hours of operation and is the recommended route when uphill traffic is restricted.

*THESE ARE SUGGESTED ROUTES WHEN USING OTHER ROUTES PLEASE BE CONSCIENTIOUS OF SNOW GROOMERS AND KEEP TO ONE SIDE OF THE TRAIL OR OTHER. WHEN SKIING DOWN GIVE THEM A WIDE BREADTH AS THEY DO NOT EXPECT YOU TO BE THERE. THE SAME RULES APPLY AS ABOVE TO TRANSITION TIMES, 8:45 AM ON WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS AND 9:45 AM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

Rescue Response:

There are no ski patrol or ski area services outside of the mountain’s normal operating hours. If accessing the mountain prior to operating hours, you do so at your own risk. In case of emergency, outside of operating hours, call 911 and know that response times could be extended. Also be aware that mobile phone service can be unreliable on the mountain, especially on the Pine Creek Side and Superior sides of the mountain.

Required Pass and Release of Liability:

We have decided to waive the pass and liability waiver for this season as it created some confusion. We plan on getting it back online next season but until then enjoy!

*THIS POLICY AND UP-HILL-SKIN-TRACK IS MAINTAINED AND ENFORCED BY THE BOGUS BASIN SKI PATROL, ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS CAN BE SENT TO SPATROL@BOGUSBASIN.ORG.

    Season Pass Age Guidelines/Restrictions

    December 1, 2020, is the birthday cut-off date for season passes and lift tickets.

    • How old is the individual on December 1, 2020?
    • For example, if the pass being purchased is for a Junior (7-12 yrs), and the child is turning 13 before Dec. 1, 2020, then they do not qualify for the child rate. That child will qualify for the Teen (13-17 yrs) rate.

    Proof of a birth certificate or valid ID is required if the individual has not had a season pass with Bogus Basin or if there is a discrepancy within our database. A senior will need a valid ID.

    Bogus Basin reserves the right to charge the additional amount on a pass if the individual does not meet the age requirement for that pass.

    If a balance has to be paid in the fall due to a discrepancy, then the balance is based on the sale period when the pass is issued, not when the season pass was purchased.

    Family Pass Guidelines/Restrictions

    Should you purchase a Family Season Pass? Calculate the rate of each individual member as if they are not on a “family pass”. 

    EXAMPLE follows with pricing based on the Early Bird Season Pass Sale:

    2 adult pass holders at $349, 1 Young Adult at $229, 1 Junior at $89 = $1,016. At this rate, you would NOT want to purchase a Family Season Pass. If your calculation exceeds the “Family Pass Rate” of $1,049, then the Family Season Pass should be purchased.

    You must also meet the below definition of a family AND you will be required to show proof of dependency annually. This proof is required even if you’ve had a family pass before. This is due to guests adding individuals to their family pass who are NOT family members. Please be prepared to show this proof when picking up a season pass or email us the proof before any of the family members pick up their pass. We reserve the right to not issue and/or charge the correct amount before any of the passes are issued.

    Proof of family unit/dependency could include:

    1) Most recent tax return documentation

    2) Birth certificates for minors (18 & under)

    3) Health insurance where dependent is listed as covered

    4) Court approved adoption papers (with signature or seal)

    5) Court approved foster children living at the residence,

    6) Marriage certificate for blended families

    DEFINITION OF A FAMILY

    • Individuals living in one household can qualify. (legally married with dependent children or a single parent with dependent children)
    • Only two members can be over the age of 24.
    • Children can be added up to the age of 24. (if they have not turned 25 before Dec 1)
    • December 1, 2020, is the birthday cut-off date for the 2020-21 season. How old is the individual on Dec 1, 2020?
    • If married and filing taxes individually, then the address on tax information must match and dependents must be listed on either form.
    • If family members have different last names, then proof of a birth certificate for dependents required.
    • Siblings (or other relatives) 24 years of age and older who live together DO NOT QUALIFY. For example, two brothers living together with their children.
    • Grandparents, in-laws, nannies, groundskeepers, housekeepers, roommates, etc., do not qualify.
