What a fun mountain 8 inches of powder and a bluebird day. Prices were right for the amount of terrain. Thanks Bogus Basin.

I am from South Texas, going to the resort was something very different for me. Aside from the cold temperatures, experiencing snow was awesome! I did not go skiing, maybe next time I'll work up my courage to do so. Instead, I did snow shoeing and I thought it was easier than it looks but boy was I wrong. It... More

Had a blast at this ski resort. I went tubing and it was very fun. Only recommendation I would have is to salt the parking areas. I didn't have 4 wheel drive and almost slid into another vehicle from the ice.

Bogus is a great ski/snowboard resort. 2 lodges (plus a small yurt open only on weekends). Doesn't seem to matter the day, you can always find good runs at Bogus. Its unique layout means you have tons of options - groomer/park/powder/trees. The lift lines aren't bad unless you are there Sat/Sun afternoons, the lodges have good food and drinks that... More

I was in Boise on business travel. All my colleagues recommended this place as something to do. I took their advice and headed there. I have never skied before so I made a reservation for lessons at the Nordic center up there. It was a wonderful experience and well worth the price. I would do it again in a heartbeat.... More

Great and quick skiing location just outside Boise ID, beautifully groomed and actually surprisingly expansive and partially challenging slopes. The Simplot lodge at the start of the lifts is nice, not too big, food decent, very reasonable pricing, great for families; our grandchildren love it.

We went as a family with friends. 3 kids age 10-15 and my wife and I. The lift prices are reasonable but even better with local discounts found on their website. The drive up is windy and slow but you do get to enjoy the deer in the side of the road. It's pretty well maintained during the season but... More
