Your Mountain | April 2024 Wrapped

April 2024 Wrapped | Bogus Basin

You know what they say… April showers bring May flowers… and while there was certainly no shortage of sun on the mountain this month, we also gleefully welcomed 25″ of fresh powder in the early weeks of April. As we bid the 2023-2024 winter season farewell, we give thanks to our community of visitors (over 559,800 of you this season!) that make all that we do possible.

Without further ado: Your Mountain: April 2024 Wrapped– a recap of mountain visitation, conditions, most popular lifts, and more!

Best Dressed
From vibrant florals to faded jorts, this April you made the mountain– and the closing weekend pond– your runway, serving up looks eclectic enough to set this season’s hottest trends. With Spring temperatures making an appearance on the mountain April, you took full advantage of the slopes to make the latest styles your own… hello Jesus-chic?

That’s a wrap on the 2023-2024 winter season!


We wouldn’t be us without you! Thank you for shredding, spinning, skating, sliding, and carving with us all-season-long. We couldn’t do what we do without the generous support of our community.

After an incredible winter season, and with more capital improvements on the way (including the installation of 2, brand-new chairlifts!) this Summer, we invite you to continue supporting your local, non-profit mountain recreation area during Idaho Gives– April 29th through May 2nd.
