Love Bogus Basin. Favorite place to ski in Idaho. Bogus has the most terrain variety. You can ski all day and night and never take the same run twice. The off-trail skiing is phenomenal and endless. You can ski just about everywhere on the mountain....More

Great place with nice views and ski resort, recommended for skiing. A lot of houses to rent - mostly in winter/snow period but great views even when no snowing

The drive up is fantastic. If you have never seen the inversion of idaho freeze on the trees you're in for a real shock. Narrow road on the way up, weekends be prepared for a slower drive up.

We are so lucky to have such a great ski area only 17 miles from down town. The lifts are high speed and the terrain is varied. You can be VERY challenged or enloy cruising on a nicely groomed run,

Bogus does not have artificial snow making capability so if it gets warm enough to melt down to the dirt the resort will close. However, this being Idaho, the weather can change drastically on short notice. Many times in... More
