Prices are reasonable. First time renting skis for guests, very easy and quick. Nice to get two half-off tickets with my season pass, almost paid for the pass! Therefore layout is quirky, with most of the best runs on the backside. Lots of runs require...More

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
