Very dependent on the weather for ski conditions that do not always cooperate making skiing sketchy at times. Apprehensive to purchase a season pass due to uncertainty of future. Road to area awful and unsafe with too many teenagers driving the switchbacks and thinking they are immortal. A tram from bottom to top would be absolutely fabulous.

It is Bogus. It never has any good snow, or any snow in fact. The only redeeming quality is that it is the closest to where I live. The road is terrible and it takes about an hour just to get up it. It is almost easier to drive to McCall and go to Brundage, which is an almost all... More

Ski slopes were already closed in March but the drive up the mountain was gorgeous! The change of 3000 feet brings so many changes in topography from desert foothills to alpine forest

This ski resort is 20 miles up the mountain from downtown Boise. Great local skiing for a reasonable price and gives you all the same skiing you would find at Sun Valley for a fraction of of the price. The facilities are very good, renting skis are pretty easy to get. The restaurant is basic and food is OK but... More

Staff are friendly, good lodge, about 40 minutes from Boise itself. The mountain itself is not known for powder days. Majority of the year there is crust/ice but when the snow does show up it is so close to Boise you can't go wrong. You can get discounts through jackson gas stations if you don't have a season pass.

Spent the morning enjoying the drive up to the resort just to enjoy an Idaho beer. I didnt do any skiing but the scenic views were worth the drive and just enjoying the mountain air on the drive back down was an easy day for someone seeking soul food.

The hill are fair, however, in order to get around, prepare to cat track everywhere. The bathrooms are disgraceful... I mean disgusting. So small there is barely room to open a stall door. They always stink. Please invest in updating for people who actually ski and have gear on. Snow is decent on good snow days, but snow has been... More

I'm a Florida girl and wanted to try skiing for the first time while in Boise. Getting up the mountain is quite a drive - luckily we had an experienced driver making those twists and turns! When I called the ski school I was given so much info - everything I needed to know - I was happy to schedule... More

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!
