Bogus Basin is a big-time hill with a local feel

Bogus Basin has it all: high speed lifts, night skiing, trees, bumps, double diamonds, cruisers, three terrain parks and great backcountry--all in a non-profit, affordable package.

The slopes are just 16.5 miles from Boise. The scenic, twisting road has over 200 curves from bottom to top. Despite the curves, the drive only takes about 35 minutes from downtown. Book a room in Boise at participating hotels in the mountain’s Stay and Play program and get two for one lift tickets for every night you stay.

With seven lifts and thousands of acres, Bogus Basin is a great mountain fit for any type of skier, whether you like your snowriding long and leisurely or difficult and challenging. Take time to explore. Ask for an escort by a Mountain Host. These red-jacketed guides know every inch of the hill and they love to show you around.

Or hook up with a local and ask for a trip OB and down "Chair 7" or through the infamous Triangle or Waterfall/911 areas on Pine Creek. Beginners enjoy Silver Queen Cabin Traverse. Lift 5 is great for intermediates. If you like long cruisers, Pine Creek is the place to go. For kids, there’s a mountain full of hidden "jump trails" to enjoy.

Enthusiasts agree the place to check out is The Face--several hundred acres of steep black and double diamond terrain with widely spaced trees, cliffs and cornices. Hike to the very top above Superior and follow the crest to cornices, cliffs and Idaho’s signature deep powder snow.

Bogus has three terrain parks. Each park throws out different lines and features to challenge freestyle skiers and riders at any skill level. For newbies to freestyle, Sunshine is a great introduction to park riding. Claim Jumper is geared for intermediate to advanced riders. Playground Freestyle features an exclusive Planet c- bowl wall ride that has Ski Trax as a riding surface - the only feature of its kind here in the west.

This year Bogus Basin is celebrating its Black Diamond Anniversary—65 years as Boise’s winter getaway. The mountain recreation area has been a non-profit, community-based ski area since it opened in 1942. Join the celebration this year for the best of winter in Idaho.

Eight things every skier and rider must do at Bogus Basin:

1. Check out the view of the valley from the top of Deer Point chair #1. Take a picture to send to your friends and family to make them jealous.

2. Eat an order of our famous bodacious chili cheese fries...yummy...

3. Enjoy mountain views from Pioneer Lodge, spectacular at night

4. Go night skiing or riding, a magical experience during a full moon. Chair 3 is open at night and it's your own private Idaho on the backside at night.

5. Scope at the action at any of our 3 terrain parks: the Sunshine terrain park (for beginners and young kids) off of Morning Star #2; or the Playground and Claim Jumper parks off of Deer Point #1 (for intermediate to expert freeriders)

6. Sit by the gas fireplace at the Frontier Point Nordic Center

7. Ride the Pepsi GoldRush Tubing Hill for a different kind of thrill

8. Free popcorn every day at 4pm in Simplot Lodge-just follow the aroma and help yourself!
