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

Bogus Basin ski resort is a half hour above Boise and transports visitors to the mountaintops for a day or night of tremendous fun. Lots of runs, from beginner to expert, with three high speed quad lifts and many double chairs. Many well groomed runs and many challenging off trial runs. The staff is always extremely friendly and helpful, from... More

Not being much of a downhill skier, it is great to have a place in Boise for xc skiing. The trails were well maintained and clearly marked for rate of ease and/or difficulty. Not to mention it is absolutely beautiful up there! Try to go on a clear day and you will be able to see for miles!

In winter, Good snow and wonderful slopes. Some chair lift is a little old fashion, but more comfortable. And so great Bogus people & friends at Pioneer Lodge and main lodge. Usually I enjoyed snack after night skiing with good friends.. I also stayed Shaffer Butte (summit camping ground of Bogus) in summer (July) and so cool & wonderful camping,... More

It was an one in a life experience. It was the first time I have ever Ski-ed in my life and it was simply awesome. What a place!!! I was spell-bound. I learned my baby steps of Ski-ing here. Very nice people, very helpful and supportive. When I was there, I also participated in their Open Barbecue party, met some... More

We learned on a prior trip to Idaho that ski resorts can make great places to hike in the summer, and we weren't disappointed. We drove to the Pioneer Lodge, then hiked the service road to Shafer Butte. There were other trails available as well. Some people were taking mountain bikes to ride the trails. My wife is a Crossfitter... More

As a teenager, I lived in Boise and took every opportunity to go skiing at Bogus Basin. I don't know that you would call it a resort. It does have some great skiing and it is lots of fun. Since it was only 17 miles up the mountian, we could go skiing anytime we felt like going like Saturday morning... More
