Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding
Alpine Skiing & Snowboarding, a pastime enjoyed by millions of people annually, involves traveling uphill on a ski lift followed by skiing/riding down one of the mountain’s many trails. Ski lifts can be anything from a conveyor-lift to a highspeed chairlift. Bogus Basin is located just 16 miles from Boise and provides opportunities to affordably recreate for over 700,000 locals. Our community mountain has 10 lifts serving 80 runs, across 2,600 acres of terrain, providing 1,800 TRUE vertical feet of skiing.
The Glade Runner Mountain Coaster
Bogus Basin is home to the only mountain coaster in the state of Idaho. Experience 4,330 feet of high speed, twisting and turning, screaming and cheering through the woods! Just east of the Simplot Lodge, guests (driver and passenger) are seated in a mountain coaster cart, pulled to the top of the track, then released at the top for an exhilarating ride through the trees. You are in control of your own speed and by pressing the handles all the way forward, you unleash The Glade Runner’s full potential!
Tickets can be purchased at the Simplot Lodge ticket window at the mountain.
Winter tubing is a perfect activity for families, friends, and groups of all sizes during the winter. Take a slide down the Pepsi Goldrush Tubing Hill, an 800 ft. downhill thrill with the convenience of a conveyor-lift back to the top, allowing you to ride again and again.
Got a group?
Email or call us at 208-332-5137 and inquire about reserving the entire tubing hill for your large group (more than 15 people). The tubing hill makes a great corporate party, church group outing, or birthday party. More information on group pricing here
Nordic skiing is a lifelong sport that the whole family can enjoy. Unlike alpine skiing and snowboarding, Nordic skiing does not involve any form of uphill transportation. Nordic skiing utilizes skis that allow the user to lift their heels to move the skis across the snow. Much like hiking in the summer, Nordic skiing offers a great opportunity to connect with nature during the winter, while getting a workout! Our great network of Nordic trails offers something for both experienced and novice skiers alike. If you’re new to the sport, we offer a wide variety of programs and lessons with experienced instructors who can help you learn the ins and outs of Nordic skiing. Need equipment or waxing advice? Come in the Frontier Point Nordic Lodge to talk with and warm yourself up by the fire before hitting the trails!
Snowshoeing is a fun, easy, and a low-impact way to get out and enjoy winter. We offer both shared Nordic trails and snowshoe-only trails, so you won’t have any shortage of beautiful winter scenery to stroll through. Whether you’re looking for winter solitude or a social activity, snowshoeing is something people of all ages and abilities can enjoy. Just stop by the Frontier Point Nordic Lodge to rent some snowshoes and grab a trail map before you’re on your way!
