“Love to Ski Bogus”

Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area
Ranked #12 of 130 things to do in Boise
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 20, 2012

I've been skiing Bogus for 20+ years and it I am still finding little pockets and lines that are new to me each year, (although I have to go OB nowadays to find new stuff). The groomers are great, when they actually groom them. The food is pretty decent, and not as pricey as the big resorts. And you can't beat the price! But the real reason why I love to ski Bogus is all of the off-trail stuff and the quality backcountry that is very accessible. The resort has some great lines if you like rocks, trees and gullies. My favorite OB spot is Mores Mountain on the NE edge of the resort. On the east face, I can get several lines that are 1500 ft of fall-line vertical. Inbounds, if you want a challenge, try Inspiration on the Face or the Chair 6 lift line which features areas that we call the "rock garden chutes" and "hairy beast".

Great powder, blue skies. Very near town, easy access and low crowds especially on a weekday. Well worth a try!

average or below mountain. bad drive up but as boisean you can do the 45 min torture or go on the road for 2-3 hours. slopes groomed adequately. food is mostly burgers, junk etc. hard to get a seat at eating times. all in all, it is what it is.....a low budget ski restaurant with good intentions at an elevation that does not have the best snow but it is convenient and its location will make it attractive

Go on days when it snows. If it's sunny, go on the backside. The food is average so it's up to you if you want to bring a sack lunch.
