I love Bogus Basin ski area. Of course there are better "resorts" and "destination" ski areas, but you can't beat Bogus for good local family skiing at less than $250 for a season. The terrain is varied, staff is good, ski instructors are good, food is decent, and ski shop is good. Drive is only about a 1/2 hour from... More

This is a little bit of a local secret, but if you are looking for skiing in the west at an affordable cost, great terrain for everyone and still be home for dinner, this is the place for you. We like going in the mornings, sometime still a bit crunchy and then leave when the crowds hit in the afternoon.... More

My family and I took ski/Snow board lessons at Bogus. It was a great experience! I enjoy the drive up and back. Night Skiing is a must, the lights below from the city are awesome to look at while skiing. The lodge is warm, the food is good. There is a snow tube run which is fun to go on!... More

We went to some of the summer concerrt series here. It was a great location for a laid back afternoon of music. I've visited before, both for skiing in the winter, and hiking in the summer, and I've always marvelled at the quality of the experience so close to town. At the summer concert, we watched a number of mountain... More

We drove up there to ride the Around the Mountain trail and it was well worth the drive. The place was pretty much deserted except for a few others out for a ride and some doing some Frisbee Golf. The views from the trail are awesome, you can see the valley below and the Saw tooth Mountains for miles.

A great time for the entire group of young and old. Beautiful surroundings and a variety of slopes. The kids enjoyed the inner tubing down the hill and then relaxed while the lift carried them back to the top. Also has a nice warm place to get out of the snow and drink hot cocoa in between sessions.

This resort is so close to Boise it is crazy! Do you have 40 mins to drive to an epic ski resort...then visit Bogus! It is lighted at night for night skiing and the terrain is crazy amazing. I grew up in CO and the back side big snow rivals many runs at my home resorts. If you are a... More

Took a quick trip up in August, so no snow, just to see the view. Got there just in time to take the chair lift up, snap a few photos, and head back down. Lots of mountain bikers on the trails. There were 4 cows meandering around just across the road from the entrance, which was incredibly random but really... More

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.

Great family ski area!!!! Affordable skiing and food. The lodge is clean, lots of good terrain and lessons are an excellent price if you need them. Another hidden gem in Idaho!!!! 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
