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.

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.

The staff's or volunteer's help when my children needed help was priceless for a parent. Knowing a person there went out of their way to make sure my kids were safe and helped them get where they needed to be when they weren't proficient skiers helped them have more fun and was such a relief to me sending them to...

I usually snowboard in Utah. Was in Boise and thought I would try Bogus. Lowest price I have ever spent on lift tickets and loved not dealing with crowds. The drive up to the mountain was nerve-wracking for me as it is a curvy, mountain road. But worth it.

Drove up from the city to see the views. I was NOT disappointed. Can't wait to come back to ski and see how the mountain spoils us.
