Your Mountain | 2023-2024 Winter Season Wrapped

For those who have been with us all-season-long, you know we’ve been keeping track of this season’s greatest hits each month. With the winter season officially over, we’re pleased to share the 2023-2024 Winter Season Wrapped!

From those who did the most with low tides in December, to those who helped us set record-breaking visitation in January– from repeat recreationalists in February, plenty of snow for all types of mountain-goers in March, and Spring conditions (plus 25″ of fresh snow!) in April– the 2023/2024 Winter Season saw no shortages of snow or fun.

As we bid farewell to snow-capped views in exchange for wildflowers and warmer months ahead, we give thanks for the support, mountain conditions, happenings, and community that made it all possible. Keep reading for a compilation of this season’s most notable highlights.

In February 2024, Bogus Basin made the exciting announcement that the iconic Coach and Bitterroot (#5) chairlifts will be replaced with state-of-the-art Skytrac 4-person lifts.
