I went in March and most of the snow was gone but I did enjoy the drive up and the views were nice. I think this looked more like the everyday man's resort or one the locals would frequent. It did not seem very elaborate or difficult to ski.

In the spring and summer take a hike and end up with a stellar view! You can play Frisby golf, take the chairlift up with your bike and ride some of the best downhill trails, or just roam around and check out nature's offerings. Grab a bite to eat and a cold bevvie at the lodge too. I've had their... More

Amazing view from our condominiums that we rented. So much to do and see. You name it. Hike, bike, run, walk, ski. Do it all at bogus.

We just returned from a hike "Around the Mountain." This is a fairly new trail around Shafer Butte and a little over 10 miles long. Some great views and quite a variety of eco-systems on this trail. Several water sources for your dogs too. Don't hike it on weekends though, too many bikes.

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.

Went up just once this year and had fantastic snow. Of course that was of no doing of bogus other than showing up and opening its doors. But the runs were well groomed and you can't beat the proximity to Boise.

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.
