We drove up there to ride the Around the Mountain trail and it was well worth the drive. The place was pretty much deserted except for a few others out for a ride and some doing some Frisbee Golf. The views from the trail are awesome, you can see the valley below and the Saw tooth Mountains for miles.

A great time for the entire group of young and old. Beautiful surroundings and a variety of slopes. The kids enjoyed the inner tubing down the hill and then relaxed while the lift carried them back to the top. Also has a nice warm place to get out of the snow and drink hot cocoa in between sessions.

This resort is so close to Boise it is crazy! Do you have 40 mins to drive to an epic ski resort...then visit Bogus! It is lighted at night for night skiing and the terrain is crazy amazing. I grew up in CO and the back side big snow rivals many runs at my home resorts. If you are a... More

Took a quick trip up in August, so no snow, just to see the view. Got there just in time to take the chair lift up, snap a few photos, and head back down. Lots of mountain bikers on the trails. There were 4 cows meandering around just across the road from the entrance, which was incredibly random but really... More

It's a nice place to hang with your children and to rest. Ski Lodges are generally not that great, so this one isn't that different but it lives up to expectations.

Great family ski area!!!! Affordable skiing and food. The lodge is clean, lots of good terrain and lessons are an excellent price if you need them. Another hidden gem in Idaho!!!! The terrain ranges from easy to very technical. Good skiing in the trees if there is enough snow. Season passes are very affordable if you get them during the... More

Bogus Basin offers a great skiing experience at an affordable price. It is family friendly and has ski runs that will suit beginners and advanced skiers. The views are surprisingly stunning too. It's a great place to hike in the warm months too. Bogus Basin is approximately 17 miles from down town Boise. If you have an opportunity to hit... More

Crazy drive up, super views. I have been here in the winter to ski for Junior Olympics many years ago and it was a delightful family day area. This trip it was just to look at the view of the area. It's is beautiful! Careful driving it has lots of turns!

Great place to run up to get a quick fix for some skiing. Snow conditions are variable, ranging from fair to good unless we are blessed with a rare heavy snow pack year.

Bogus Basin has several things to offer. Skiing I the winter, hiking and mountain biking trails. It is a very windy road from bottom to top at 6400 feet. This photo was taken from the 2nd road over looking the Boise foot hills. The winter of 2015.
