As proximity goes, Bogus is great! It is a quick drive from Boise. I was expecting a small mountain, with average terrain, and I was pleasantly surprised! They had optimal lifts and great variable terrain. You can ski groomers, trees, steeps, bumps, and have a great day!

Bogus Basin Ski Resort, 17 miles from downtown Boise, is a well kept secret and undiscovered jewel outside of the great Boise market. It has everything one could want in a mid sized ski area without high prices, crowds, and indifferent staff. While snow conditions can be inconsistent (5800" base elevation), it has 2600 acres of skiing and 1800" of... More

“A hidden gem at Bogus Basin, Boise, Idaho.” I visited Boise State University, as part of my work, thenwent up to Bogus Basin twice while I was at Boise. Despite it “Bogus” name, I found a hidden gem at Bogus Basin, Boise, Idaho. I think the mountain is an excellent ski location. I rented my gear on the mountain; the... More

I've skied at Bogus basin many times. In my opinion, you'll be hard pressed to find more beautiful views of both the city, and the gorgeous tree covered vistas that Idaho has to offer anywhere else. Very nice ski trails with challenges for every skill level. I just stopped going there because the snow-boarders are so rude.

Great place thats close to home and only takes an hour to get to. Theres runs of all skill levels at bogus including two magic carpets for beginners that can't get on the beginners lift. It was fun watching the kids learn how to ski and snowboard here. The food in the lodge was good and the prices on the... More

Bogus Basin has excellent terrain and high speed quads. Plenty of open terrain for powder skiers when the snow flies. After some of the runs on the back side become skier packed, the groomers need to get on them and do a much better and more consistent job.

I recommend going to the Bogus Basin Outfitters sleigh ride and dinner. What a wonderful experience and the food is amazing. So beautiful at night on the sleigh.

Bogus Basin is fantastic for a local ski area near a town with affordable cost of living. It's not a destination resort, per se, but I love it for the size and variety of terrain, close proximity to town. I mainly ski weekdays and meet many other skiers who love it for the same reasons I do: you can head... More

Bogus is only about a half hour out of downtown Boise. The road to the resort is long and winding, but well worth the drive. Once you arrive you will find a big mountain with many runs, high speed quads and almost no crowd (if skiing during the week). The staff and facilities are first class! The resort is well... More
